Edwards, Hinds lead Bajans to 471
BRIDGETOWN—England Lions started their chase for first innings points strongly, after a career-best hundred from Kirk Edwards and Ryan Hinds’ 12th First Class hundred propped-up solid Barbados batting in the WICB Regional first-class championship yesterday. Andrew Lyth was not out on 48 and Andrew Gale was not out on 37, as the Lions, replying to Barbados’ first innings total of 471, reached 101 for one when bad light stopped play eight overs early on the rain-affected second day of their second round match at Kensington Oval.
Barbados had been dismissed about 20 minutes after the rescheduled tea break, with Edwards leading the way with 171, and Hinds, the Barbados captain, supporting with 135. The pair added 276 for the third wicket. Kyle Hope stroked 41, Shamar Brooks made 24, and Jason Holder scored 20 to beef-up the Barbados total, after they continued from their overnight total of 276 for two, following an hour-long rain delay. Jade Dernbach was the pick of the Lions’ bowlers with five wickets for 84 runs from 31.2 overs.
It was the second five-wicket haul in the competition for the South Africa-born Surrey fast bowler, following his five for 16 from 10.3 overs in the second innings in the Lions’ opening match victory over Leeward Islands. CMC
Other matches put off by weather
ST GEORGE’S—Jamaica were prevented from making any headway against Windward Islands, when not a ball was bowled in their WICB Regional first-class match yesterday. The three-time defending champions were set to resume from their overnight total of 177 for six in their first innings, but persistent rain never allowed the players to get onto the field at the Queen’s Park Stadium. The deluge left several parts of the outfield soggy, and this prompted officials to abandon the second day of the second round match during the scheduled tea break.
GEORGETOWN—Not a ball was bowled in the WICB Regional first-class match between Guyana and Leeward Islands for a second consecutive day yesterday. The soggy condition of the Bourda Oval was not fit for play, and this again prompted the umpires to abandon the second day of the second round match even before the scheduled start time. Umpires Clyde Duncan, a Guyanese, and Vincent Bullen, a Barbadian, are confident that once there is no more rain overnight, play should start sometime after the scheduled lunch interval today. —CMC
