Windwards leave CCC floundering
Combined Campuses and Colleges 149 (Walton 63) and 95 for 3 (Wilkinson 50) trail Windward Islands 347 (Smith 159) by 102 runs
Though they failed to add to their overnight 347 for 9, Windward Islands did very well to dismiss Combined Colleges and Campuses (CCC) for 149 and then leave them 96 for 3, following on, at the Beausejour Cricket Ground. CCC did well to dismiss centurion Devon Smith first ball of the day but were soon 50 for 5 themselves. A 94-run partnership between wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton (63) and captain Shirley Clarke (27) stemmed the rot momentarily but they were dismissed in succession and CCC lost five wickets for five runs. The spin combo of Shane Shillingford (3-11) and Liam Sebastien (2-38) caused the dramatic collapse. Dismissed on the stroke of tea, CCC were put back in by Rawl Lewis, the Windwards' captain, and left-arm pacer Deighton Butler bowled Jason Parris in the first over. Kurt Wilkinson joined Simon Jackson and the pair put on 61 for the second wicket before Jackson was caught and bowled by Shillingford for 18.Wilkinson made 50 before he fell to Shillingford. Floyd Reifer and Nikolai Parris took CCC to the close without further loss.
Jamaica 330 for 8 (Nash 96*, Hyatt 72) lead Trinidad and Tobago 257 by 73 runs
Half-centuries from Brendan Nash and Danza Hyatt helped leaders Jamaica to an important 73-run lead against Trinidad and Tobago on the second day at the Queen's Park Oval. In reply to T&T's 257 Jamaica made 330 for 8, with Nash on 96 not out and fast bowler Darren Powell with him on 27. The main wicket-takers were Rayad Emrit (2 for 56), Ravi Rampaul (2 for 67), along with offspinner Amit Jaggernauth (2 for 73). Nash shared in a vital fourth-wicket stand of 117 with Hyatt, who made 72 from 165 balls. Earlier, Jamaica resumed on 41 for 1 and lost the over night pair of Brenton Parchment and Xavier Marshall to go to lunch on 107 for 3. T&T's bowlers were tidy after the interval - only five runs were scored from the first eight overs - but Hyatt moved onto his half-century. Tea was taken at 219 for 3 and Nash duly reached his fifty, but Hyatt was caught at long-on off Jaggernauth. Jamaica lost two quick wickets with the second new ball but Nash and Powell carried them safely to the close of play.
Leeward Islands 166 for 2 (Morton 73*, Hodge 3*) v Barbados
Persistent rain forced the abandonment of play, without a ball being bowled, on the second day of the Barbados v Leeward Islands match at Salem Park. Wet outfield conditions caused by early morning rain had prevented any play before lunch in the rain-hit game that had its first day on Friday limited to only two-and-a-half hours.
