Third defeat for Pride narrows semis hopes


Share post:

ST JOHN’S – Barbados Pride virtually crashed out of contention for the West Indies Super50 Cup, when Jason Mohammed cracked his sixth List A hundred to lead Trinidad & Tobago Red Force to a three-wicket victory.

Pride failed to make early inroads into the Red Force batting and Mohammed struck 10 fours and three sixes in 122 from 161 balls to lead his side’s successful chase of 254 for victory at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.

Roston Chase, bowling his uncomplicated off-spin, grabbed three for 21 from 10 overs to give Pride a flicker of hope, but none of the other bowlers matched his penetration or economy.

Left-hander Imran Khan sealed victory for Red Force with five balls remaining, when he drove pacer Chemar Holder firmly through mid-off for four.

The result meant that Pride slumped to their third successive loss and remained fifth in the standings with no points. Conversely, Red Force have now moved into the top spot with 12 points, having won all three of their matches in convincing fashion.

Pride will face Windward Islands Volcanoes in their penultimate match this coming Thursday in another daytime contest at the VRCG before returning to the CCG three days later for their final match against Jamaica Scorpions under the lights.

Earlier, Justin Greaves, Chase and left-hander Jonathan Carter hit half-centuries and Pride reached 253 for nine from their allocation of 50 overs, after they were put into bat.

Greaves hit the top score of 62 from 81 balls, Chase supported with a run-a-ball 56 and Carter made 56 from 70 balls.

Red Force captain Kieron Pollard, bowling his uncomplicated medium-pace, grabbed a career-best five for 17 from three overs to be the pick of his side’s bowlers.

Summarised scores:

Barbados Pride 253 for nine off 50 overs (Justin Greaves 62, Jonathan Carter 56, Roston Chase 56, Shamarh Brooks 20, Jason Holder 18, Zachary McCaskie 16; Kieron Pollard 3-0-17-5, Akeal Hosein 2-44). Trinidad & Tobago Red Force 256 for seven off 49.1 overs (Jason Mohammed 122, Evin Lewis 61, Sunil Narine 18, Akeal Hosein 16 not out, Denesh Ramdin 10; Roston Chase 3-21, Dominic Drakes 2-47). Red Force won by three wickets. (AR)
