T&T edge ahead on topsy-turvy day
A round-up of the second day of the second round of the Regional Four Day Competition
The game between Combined Campuses and Colleges and Trinidad & Tobago is headed for an early finish after 13 wickets tumbled on the second day in Trinidad. Kevin McClean and Raymon Reifer shared eight wickets between them as T&T lurched to 164. Daren Ganga's 32 was the highest score and there were a couple of other twenties, but there were also six single-digit scores. CC&C conceded 25 extras, and that could prove crucial in this low-scoring match. They also managed to lose five second-innings wickets for 135, despite Kyle Corbin's half-century, and lead only by 102 with not much batting left.
Jade Dernbach's five wickets helped England Lions claw their way back on the second day against Barbados at the Kensington Oval, after big hundreds from Kirk Edwards and Ryan Hinds had raised hopes of a total in excess of 600. Edwards and Hinds had carried on from the first day, putting on another 96 runs after having added 176 earlier. But Dernbach finally ended their marathon stand, having Edwards caught behind and bowling Hinds. The other batsmen could not do much after that, apart from Kyle Hope (41). Dernbach and left-arm spinner Danny Briggs brought an end to the Barbados innings at 471. Adam Lyth led with an unbeaten 48 as Lions ended on 101 for 1.
Rain washed out the second day's play between Windward Islands and Jamaica in Grenada, and also between Guyana and Leeward Islands in Georgetown.
