Rain hits Barbados, Ja match again
LUCAS STREET, Barbados (CMC):Heavy rains once again forced the abandonment of play in the WICB Professional Cricket League second-round game between Barbados Pride and Jamaica here yesterday.
A strong weather system, which moved into the area late Thursday, continued to dump torrential rains across the island, leaving the Windward Sports Club ground under water for the second straight day.
Once the weather clears, play on today's third day is scheduled to bowl off at 9:30 a.m.
The washout is another big blow for the hosts, who also saw their first-round game against Trinidad and Tobago Red Force hit by rain in Port of Spain last weekend, resulting in a draw.
At Warner Park: Leeward Islands, 202 (Jeremiah Louis, 34 not out; Austin Richards, 34; Akeem Saunders, 34; Devon Thomas, 24; Yannick Leonard, 21; Imran Khan, 4-83; Rayad Emrit, 2-15; Marlon Richards, 2-36), and 17 without loss.
T&T Red Force, 130 (Yannick Cariah, 43 not out; Rayad Emrit, 33; Anthony Martin, 2-17; Orlando Peters, 2-17; Gavin Tonge, 2-24; Jeremiah Louis, 2-30).
At Guyana National Stadium: Guyana Jaguars, 291 (Narsingh Deonarine, 139; Shiv Chanderpaul, 62; Assad Fudadin, 34; Kenroy Peters, 5-36; Mervin Mathew, 3-29; Nelon Pascal, 2-53).
Windward Islands Volcanoes, 63 for two (Devon Smith, 29; Tyrone Theophile, 21).
