West Indies batsman Marlon Samuels continued his excellent run of form with this third century in four games to lead Jamaica to 332 for 3 in their fourth round game against Leeward Islands at Warner Park in St. Kitts. Samuels brought up his hundred with a pull through mid-wicket for two off Anthony Martin, and ended the day unbeaten on 143, having struck 15 fours and two sixes. He was well supported by Brendan Nash, who made 67 after being dropped on 15, Simon Jackson, who made 61 and Danza Hyatt, who made 44.
Sherwin Ganga and Denesh Ramdin helped steady Trinidad & Tobago after they had slumped to 54 for 4 on the opening day of their game against Winward Islands at the Arnos Vale Ground in St. Vincent. The pair added 111 before Ramdin was caught close to the wicket by Keron Cottoy off the bowling of Gary Mathurin for 53. Ramdin batted for just over two hours, and peppered his innings with seven boundaries. Ganga was unbeaten on 72, with Amit Jaggernauth on 6, as T&T ended the day on 172 for 5.
Opener Jimmy Adams made a hundred to lead England Lions to 260 for 4 against Combined Campuses & Colleges on a rain-affected day at the Three Ws Oval in Barbados. Adams was not out on 115 - his 11th first-class hundred - and has added an unbroken 86 for the fifth wicket with Jonathan Bairstow, who is on 34. Off-spinner Ryan Austin and left-arm spinner Kavesh Kantasingh shared the four wickets to fall, ending the day with figures of 2 for 65 and 2 for 66 respectively, having bowled 49 overs between them.
Led by Assad Fudadin, Guyana made 176 for 3 on the opening day of their game against Barbados at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. Rain postponed the start of the game until after lunch, and Guyana lost opener Rajindra Chandrika early, caught behind off Pedro Collins for 18. But Leon Johnson joined Fudadin, and they added 103 enterprising runs before Johnson, having just completed his half-century, swept leg-spinner Ryan Layne straight to deep mid-wicket. In all, he batted for 142 minutes, faced 119 balls, and struck eight fours for his 51.
Fudadin was unaffected by Johnson's dismissal, clobbering Roston Chase over long-off for six, and then dancing down the pitch to drive Layne to the extra-cover boundary in the next over. He ended the day unbeaten on 71, having struck six fours and two sixes.
