Windward Volcanoes drift to 5th place after weekend loss

Windward Volcanoes’ 172 run defeat at the hands of neighbouring Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at the Grenada National Stadium last weekend resulted in a shift in their position at the points table; the local boys moving from their previous fourth position to now occupying the fifth position.

The local team’s failed to capitalized on the perfect start aided by overnight moisture on a flat stadium wicket, having their opponents reeling at 5 for 57 at lunch to losing the game outright by 172 runs.

Liam Sebastian’s team won the toss and asked the opposition to bat, after a shaky start the Red Force posted a reasonable total of 275, an inning built around a solid knock of 102 not out from middle order batsman Yannick Cariah, with assistance from Steven Kantwaroo 59 and Khary Pierre 50.

 Bowling for the Volcanoes debutantes Grenadian medium pacer Sherman Lewis 3 for 53 from 18 overs and Kyle Mayers 4 for 24 from 13 overs gave the Volcanoes some glimmer of hope, however that opportunity was not held on to by the Volcanoes batters and they were bundled out for a mere 104, Shane Shillingford top scoring with 34.   

 Trinidad and Tobago in their second innings were 203 for 5 declared; Kyle Hope 105 not out led the Red Force attack.

   Volcanoes set a victory target of 375 in their second innings got off to a decent start, of 1 for 82, however after the fall of Devon Smith caught off the bowling of Brian Charles for 47, the volcanoes were all gone, dismissed well before tea on the final day for a mere 202 giving the Red Force victory by 172, and in the process also giving up their fourth position on the points table.  

  Meanwhile the point’s table now reads:

 Guyana now moving to the top of table with 84.8 points, followed by Jamaica with 73 points, Barbados 68, Trinidad and Tobago 56.3 Windward Volcanoes 47.2 and Leeward44 points.

 The WICB, PCL, DIGICEL Sports Max regional 4 Day tournament now moves to round 7 this weekend with Barbados hosting the Windward Volcanoes at the Kensington Oval, T&T Red Force host front runners Guyana at the Queens Park Oval while the Jamaican Scorpions host the Leeward at Sabina Park.
