T&T Red Force will be battling
today to avoid losing their first
match of the WICB Professional
Cricket League, when their clash
against Barbados Pride enters the
final day at the Queen s Park Oval.
Following on 264 runs behind,
Rayad Emrit s men closed on 165 for
three---still needing another 99 runs
to make Barbados bat again with
seven wickets in hand.
After losing their final three first
innings wickets for the addition of
just seven runs, folding for 96 in
response to Barbados 360, the local
men were always up against it.
The pitch played well and batting
was not a difficult art during the
afternoon. Openers Lendl Simmons
and Evin Lewis looked positive and
took the score to 38, when the former
was unlucky to be given out, leg
before off Kemar Roach for 27.
The West Indies fastman went
wide off the crease and angled one
into Simmons, which appeared to be
missing the leg stick but umpire
Patrick Gustard thought otherwise.
As the forlorn figure of Simmons
trudged off, it looked like same old,
same old but the young Yannick Ott-
ley joined Lewis and they were up
for a fight.
The two, who represented the
West Indies at the ICC U-19 World
Cup back in 2010 in New Zealand,
knew enough about each others
game, as they ran sensibly between
the wickets, pinching runs easily.
Lewis had problems with his timing
but brought up his half century nev-
ertheless, as the fight continued.
The two added 90 runs for the
second wicket, when left arm spinner
Jomel Warrican, who grabbed 4/12
in the first essay, sent back Lewis.
The Tableland left hander was
trapped leg before for 61. He batted
for 161 minutes, faced 120 balls and
struck nine fours.
Up next was Jason Mohammed
and he joined a well entrenched Ott-
ley at the crease. Mohammed who
failed in the first innings came out
guns blazing and played some attrac-
tive shots which delighted the handful
of spectators on hand. He and Ottley
took the score past the 150-run mark
and just as they looked like closing
up shop for T&T on the day, Ottley
fell in the final over.
With the clock showing 5.28 pm
the umpires decided to slip in one
last over in near darkness. Ashley
Nurse then got Ottley to touch one
to Dwayne Smith at slip for 44. He
batted for 166 minutes and faced 138
balls, striking six fours.
Mohammed left unbeaten on the
other end, on 32 will come out this
morning looking to continue the bat-
tle. He has so far batted for 46 min-
utes, faced 40 balls and sent five to
the fence and one over it.
Earlier, the Red Force resumed on
89 for seven and before worshippers
could have said a prayer for them at
Sunday morning service, they were
all out for 96.
Warrican grabbed all three wickets
in the space of 26 minutes and 6.4
overs. The last two recognised bats-
men skipper Rayad Emrit (2) and
Imran Khan (15) failed to lead a revival
and the home team fell short of the
At the fall of the final wicket, the
rain came and washed out the rest
of the morning session and play only
resumed at 1.45 pm.
Play on the final day today gets
underway at 9.30 am.

Opting to bat first, West Indies
were given another great start by
Matthews and Kycia Knight who
put on 97 to follow up their century
stand in the last game.
Sixteen-year-old Matthews was
again fluent, stroking a top score of
60 from 81 balls, to follow up scores
of 55 and 89 in the previous ODIs.
Knight got 40 off 58 balls with
five fours before falling first, trapped
lbw in the 20th over by Erin
Osborne, and her dismissed trig-
gered a collapse that saw five wickets
fall for 59 runs.
Matthews, who counted seven
fours in her knock, was part of the
carnage along with the prolific pair
of Deandra Dottin who struck 25
from 45 balls and Stafanie Taylor
who made just five.
Struggling at 156 for five in the
40th, Windies Women were lifted
by a crucial sixth wicket stand of
61 between Shaquana Quintyne who
finished 33 not out and captain
Merissa Aguilleira who returned to
form with 30.
Quintyne faced 35 balls and struck
three fours while Aguilleira, without
a double score in her last seven
internationals, struck two fours and
a six off 26 deliveries.
In reply, Australia slumped to 18
for two in the fifth over when
off-spinner Taylor bowled Nicole
Bolton for nine and seamer Dottin
had Elyse Villani caught at the wick-
et for five.
The final ODI is scheduled for
Bradman Oval on Tuesday. (CMC)
