Barbados Pride secure big win
Barbados Pride produced an incisive display after lunch to cripple Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and seal a massive 222-run victory on the final day of their sixth round West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Professional Cricket League cricket contest yesterday.
Resuming the day on 17 without loss in search of 336 for victory, T&T made it to 91 for three at lunch but collapsed thereafter to be bowled out for 113 in their second innings, nearly 40 minutes before the scheduled tea break at Kensington Oval.

Evin Lewis top-scored with 38, with Imran Khan and Marlon Richards both hitting 22. Opener Jeremy Solozano was unable to bat because of injury.
The victory put Barbados on 77 points in second spot, while Red Force continued to languish one from the bottom of the six-team table on 30 points.
There was no sign of a collapse when overnight batsmen Imran Khan and nightwatchman Richards pushed the first wicket stand to 55. After lunch, however, T&T collapsed, losing their last six wickets for 22 runs.
