Bowlers engineer Jamaica turnaround
An incisive performance from all the bowlers engineered a Jamaica turnaround
Jamaica 204 and 110 for 3 lead Windward Islands144 by 170 runs <
An incisive performance from all the bowlers helped Jamaica bundle out Windward Islands, overnight on 57 for 1, for 144, gaining the vital first-innings lead, before their batsmen reached 110 for 3 to end the third day on a commanding position at St Elizabeth.
Windwards never recovered after Andrew Richardson had struck twice early in the day to push them to 74 for 4. Richardson was well supported by Gareth Breese, the offspinner, and Dave Bernard, the fast bowler, who picked two wickets apiece. Shawn Findlay consolidated Jamaica's hold on the game with an unbeaten 31 after Brenton Parchment (36) had given them a good start to the second innings.
Tamar Lambert, Jamaica's captain, told The Jamaican Observer" We think a target of anything above 250 will be good on this pitch which is spinning and also providing seam movement for the faster bowlers."
