An unbroken 153-run fifth wicket part-
nership yesterday between Roston Chase
and Shane Dowrich placed Barbados Pride
in a strong position against T&T Red Force
at the end of opening day in the sixth round
of the West Indies Cricket Board Profes-
sional Cricket League.
Bowling first at Kensington Oval in Bar-
bados, T&T had some success early on as
the host was reduced to 93/4 in the second
session. However, the right-handed pair of
Chase and Dowrich joined forces to take
the home team to a comfortable 246/4 at
stumps. Chase was on 85 while Dowrich
pushed his score to 83.
T&T enjoyed the morning session as Bar-
bados was reduced to 70/3 at lunch with
captain Kraigg Brathwaite on 29 and Chase
on three. Experienced leg spinner Imran
Khan had a solid opening session, taking
the wickets of Kyle Corbin (22) and Kirk
Edwards (0) in quick succession to leave
Barbados on 29/2. Shai Hope s time at the
crease was not long, as left-arm spinner
Akeal Hosein bowled him for just 13.
The last two sessions of the day belonged
to Barbados, as fast bowler Shannon Gabriel
got the only wicket for T&T when Brathwaite
was caught by wicketkeeper Steven Kat-
waroo for 40 off 106 balls. Khan was the
top bowler for T&T snatching 2/65 in 24
At the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground
in Antigua, Guyana was in command against
the Leeward Islands. Fast bowler Ronsford
Beaton grabbed 4/40 to help dismiss the
Leewards for 139, before Guyana closed the
day on 14/0.
At Arnos Vale in St Vincent, the Wind-
ward Islands closed on 41/0 after bowling
out Jamaica for 204. Jermaine Blackwood
was unfortunate not to get a century for
Jamaica, dismissed for 96.
NELSON ---West Indies touched down here
on Friday afternoon (Thursday night, Eastern
Caribbean time) to begin final preparations
for their opening 2015 World Cup clash against
minnows Ireland on Monday (Sunday night,
Eastern Caribbean time).
Despite their rocky build-up to the tourna-
ment, the squad was in good spirits as they
trained their sights on their opening fixture at
the picturesque Saxton Oval, located in the
small city on the north coast of South Island.
The Caribbean side spent the last 11 days in
Sydney preparing for the tournament while also
playing their two official warm-up matches.
They are set to train this morning and tomor-
row afternoon, their last sessions before begin-
ning their Group B campaign.
West Indies also face reigning World cham-
pions India, South Africa, Pakistan, Zimbabwe
and the United Arab Emirates.
Champions of the first two World Cups staged
in England in 1975 and 1979, the Windies have
been given little chance of winning the World
Cup and their recent unconvincing perform-
ances have given pundits little reason to dispel
They were thrashed 4-1 by South Africa in
their five-match ODI series last month and
then crashed to an embarrassing nine-wicket
defeat to England in their first warm-up match
in Sydney last Monday, when they were bowled
out for 122.
West Indies piled up 313 in their final warm-
up on Thursday but even then, narrowly escaped
with a three-run victory against minnows Scot-

ner and is pleased to come onboard as the Official
