An allround bowling performance from Trinidad and Tobago led to Leeward Islands being shot out for 211 on the first day of their Regional 4-day clash at the Queen's Park Oval, before T&T struggled to 47 for 3 in reply. Leeward, who are bottom of the points table, opted to bat first, and began steadily before Iegsinner Imran Khan took three quick wickets to start the slide, and it was only thanks to Gavin Tonge's 44 down the order that Leewards went past 200. T&T, who are three points behind table-toppers Jamaica, lost two early wickets to Tonito Willet, with Tonge picking up the other, to give Leewards a foothold in the game.

Rain reduced the opening day of the contest between Combined Campuses and Colleges and Jamaica to just 36.4 overs, with the CC&C openers managing 90 for no loss at Chedwin Park. Omar Phillips was unbeaten on 53 and Romel Currency on 27 when rain stopped play.

Anchored by Kraigg Brathwaite's dogged half-century, Barbados crawled to 201 for 4 against Winward Islands at the Kensington Oval. Brathwaite laboured for over four hours and faced 197 deliveries for his 57, an innings that included a solitary four. He departed with the score on 144, and Kevin Stoute, who had made his way to 45, and Sharmarh Brooks, with 21, saw out the rest of the day with an unbeaten 57-run stand. Liam Sebastien was the most successful Winward bowler, picking up 3 for 50 from 28 overs.
