Dowrich misses out on ton
SHANE DOWRICH had every reason to be happy at Kensington Oval today.
He also had every reason to be disappointed.
The little wicket-keeper/batsman, one of a record five former Combermere students in the Barbados team, narrowly missed out on a maiden first-class century on the second day of their sixth round WICB regional four-day match against Leewards Islands.
Dowrich, fresh from a half-century last weekend, was left stranded on 95 when he ran out of partners.
His effort helped Barbados gain a significant lead of 179, lifting the hosts to 317 in reply to Leewards’ modest 138.
Barbados will be fancying their chances of completing victory on Sunday when the opponents resume their second innings on 121 for five, still trailing by 58. (HG)
