Pride stung by tail


Share post:

GEORGETOWN – Barbados Pride were frustrated by a stubborn, ninth-wicket half-century partnership which eroded their advantage and allowed Guyana Jaguars to finish strongly on the opening day of their third-round match in the WICB Professional Cricket League yesterday.

Asked to bat first at the Guyana National Stadium, the hosts crashed to 174 for eight, to leave Barbados on top just after tea.

However, they found redemption through wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble, who top-scored with 73, to be all out for 261 just before the close. Bramble anchored a ninth-wicket stand of 60 with out-of-favour Test leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo who made 15.

The partnership took the wind out of the Pride’s sails, especially after they seemed set to keep Jaguars under 200 runs.

Barbados owed their strong position to all-rounder Ryan Hinds, who celebrated his return to the national side by taking four for 50 with his left-arm spin. (EZS/CMC)
