Pride crush Red Force
PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC):
Barbados Pride pulled off an emphatic victory over Trinidad and Tobago Red Force here yesterday, when they crushed their perennial arch-rivals by 292 runs, to notch their first win of the newly minted Regional Four-Day Championship.
The visitors secured victory in the first over after lunch on the final day of the second round contest as Red Force crumbled for an embarrassing 99 in their second innings, in pursuit of an unlikely target of 392 at Queen's Park Oval.
Pride's assault was led by captain Kevin Stoute who snatched three for 14 while fellow seamer, Test bowler Kemar Roach, finished with three 33.
Resuming the day on 57 for three, Red Force lost their last six wickets for 42 runs - with opener Jeremy Solozano again unable to bat because of illness.
Pride were forced to wait until the eighth over of the morning before finding success when Roach had captain Yannick Ottley, yet to score overnight, caught at the wicket for two with the score on 64.
Scores: Barbados Pride 242 (Anthony Alleyne 88; Sheldon Cottrell 3-27) and 317 for two decl. (Anthony Alleyne 186, Shamarh Brooks 76 not out).
Trinidad & Tobago Red Force 168 (Roshon Primus 65; Kenroy Williams 3-21) and 99 (Kyle Hope 26; Kevin Stoute 3-14, Kemar Roach 3-33).
