Carter, Boucher lead Pride to victory


Share post:

BASSETERRE – Captain Jonathan Carter and opener Leniko Boucher struck unbeaten half-centuries in a century stand as Barbados Pride beat Leeward Islands Hurricanes for the second time in three days to become favourites in Group ‘A’ of the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup.

Asked to chase a paltry 185 at Conaree yesterday, Pride romped to their target in the 31st over to pull off an emphatic nine-wicket win and storm to the top of the Group with their fourth victory in five matches.

Carter was at the forefront of his side’s success, uncorking a 58-ball 69 not out with nine fours and a brace of sixes while fellow left-hander Boucher struck eight fours and a six in a 75-ball knock.

The pair put on an enterprising 117 for the second wicket after opener Kjorn Ottley had carved out a 38-ball 41 before retiring hurt.

Discarded West Indies opener Kieran Powell had earlier crafted an attractive 88 from 123 balls but Hurricanes suffered a batting meltdown as captain Jahmar Hamilton (32) and Terrance Warde (28) were the only other ones to reach double figures.
