Combined Campuses and Colleges, buoyed by an unbeaten 163 by opener Omar Phillips, reached a dominant position against Leeward Islands in Nevis, ending the first day on 283 for 3. The foundation for a substantial first-innings score was laid by an opening stand of 185 between Phillips - who reached his maiden first-class century - and Kyle Corbin. Medium-pacer Wilden Cornwall broke the stand, dismissing Corbin for 67, but Phillips progressed nicely to reach his century off 136 balls; his brisk innings was laced with 14 fours and four sixes. CCC did experience a minor wobble, losing three wickets for 80 runs, but with Phillips still at the crease, and the in-form Floyd Reifer lending him support at the other end, they can entertain hopes of posting a formidable score on the second day.
Captain Tamar Lambert narrowly missed out on a hundred as Jamaica posted 233 for 9 against Windward Islands at the Trelawny Stadium. It was an incisive spell from left-arm seamer Keon Peters that restricted the hosts. Peters picked up 4 for 58 as table-toppers Jamaica collapsed from 148 for 4 to 177 for 8 in the final session. Jamaica got off to a shaky start after winning the toss, losing both openers, Danza Hyatt and Donovan Pagon, cheaply to fast bowler Nelon Pascal. Lambert and Brendan Nash (18) steadied the innings with a 53-run stand for the third wicket before Nash was run out shortly after lunch. Lambert then dominated a 64-run, fourth-wicket partnership with Wavell Hinds (18) to lay the foundation for a big total. Peters started his rout by trapping David Bernard Jr lbw for 9 and then removed Lambert for 93 - his 168-ball innings comprising 10 fours. Peters then went on to easily dispatch Bevon Brown and Odean Brown to leave the home side in disarray, but wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh hit a solid unbeaten 54 from 83 balls to hold off Windwards.
Sewnarine Chattergoon scored an unbeaten half-century as rain ruined the opening day of Guyana's clash against Trinidad & Tobago (T&T) at the Queen's Park Oval. The left-handed opener hit a compact 52 as bottom-placed Guyana, after opting to bat, reached 129 for 3. Guyana made a positive start with openers Chattergoon and Christopher Barnwell putting on a 55-run stand. Barnwell was caught by Jason Mohammed off fast bowler Atiba Allert for 30. Leon Johnson then joined Chattergoon and carried the score to 62 for 1 before rain forced an early lunch. On resumption, the duo pushed the score to 88 before Navin Stewart removed Johnson for 13. Guyana slipped to 104 for 3 when Narsingh Deonarine was run out for 13. However, Chattergoon, who struck two fours and a six during his 156-ball stay, and captain Travis Dowlin took the visitors through to stumps.
