A MEASURED MAIDEN Division 1 hundred by Jason Greene spurred Wanderers to a respectable 255 for eight from 75 overs against Old Brigand Dover at stumps on the opening day of the sixth series of matches in the BCA LIME Division 1 championship yesterday. The 23-year-old former Garrison Secondary student, who hails from Inch Cape Terrace, St Philip, compiled a splendid unbeaten 111 after Wanderers chose to bat on a slowish pitch.  The slimly built right-hander entered the fray at 47 for two when Kirk Edwards was caught at slip without scoring. He soon lost Diego Stuart for 21 with no addition to the total. Greene and Renaldo Arthur both benefited from chances but they pulled things around with an enterprising fourth-wicket partnership of 71.  They used their feet skilfully to both spinners and carried Wanderers to tea at 104 without further loss. Arthur struck two sixes and one four until he was bowled for 38, by the veteran Litchfield Kirton who had previously dropped both batsmen.Wristy shotsGreene played some wristy shots on both sides of the wicket. He and Ian Bradshaw, with 32, added 70 for fifth wicket in even time. Eventually Greene reached his hundred with a couple off Nicholas Burke to deep cover just after the scheduled close. It came in 220 minutes off 126 balls and contained three fours and two sixes.   Earlier, Nicholas Evans who made 26, put on 42 for the first wicket with Stuart before he was bowled by Phillips. Phillips, who used the new ball, claimed three for 77 and fellow off-spinner Daley Hurley three for 63 including the prized wicket of Edwards. Towards the end Greene and Damion Johnson-Husbands pressed home the advantage with a fluent eighth-wicket stand of 51.
