Hurricanes seek replay

November 25, 2015

 

ST.JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC):

Leeward Islands Hurricanes head coach, Reginald Benjamin, wants their third-round match against Windward Islands Volcanoes in the WICB Professional Cricket League (PCL) to be replayed.

Benjamin is asking the WICB to rule the match null and void after his team crashed to an eight-wicket loss inside two days at Windsor Park in Dominica on Saturday.

In a low-scoring contest on what appears to have been a deteriorating wicket, Leeward Islands Hurricanes stumbled to 24 for seven before declaring their first innings before lunch on the first morning.

"I would prefer if we play over the game and we go from there," Benjamin was quoted by the Antigua Observer as saying.

The West Indies Cricket Board said Monday it would launch an investigation into the preparation of the pitch at Windsor Park.
