CAVE HILL, Barbados (CMC):
Ryan Austin followed up Chadwick Walton's second first-class hundred with another destructive spell of off-spin bowling to catapult Combined Campuses & Colleges (CCC) to a 152-run victory over Leeward Islands in the Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.
Austin, the Man of the Match, captured six for 48 from 22 overs, as Leewards, chasing 305 for victory, were bowled out for 152 in their second innings about 25 minutes after tea on the final day of their fourth-round match at the Three Ws Oval.
Devon Thomas led the way for the visitors with 37, Tonito Willett made 26 and Kieran Powell added 24, but no other batsman reached 20.
The result meant CCC gained 12 points for their first victory for the season, moving them out of the basement position, now occupied by the Leewards on seven points.
Walton, starting the day on 74, was undefeated on 101, propelling CCC to 367 for six before they declared their second innings once he had reached the milestone about 25 minutes after the start.
The Jamaica-born wicketkeeper/batsman worked his 120th delivery through mid-wicket for two to reach the landmark in an innings that lasted 167 minutes and contained seven fours and four sixes.
Leg-spinner Anthony Martin was the most successful Leewards bowler with three for 112 from 53 overs and Willett ended with two for 100 from 32 overs.
Leewards, also bidding to post their first victory of the season, saw their chances take a nosedive, when they slumped to 49 for four at lunch.
