KRAIGG BRATHWAITE is eyeing a double century at lunch on the second day of the West Indies Cricket Board’s Professional Cricket League match between Barbados Pride and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force.

Captain Brathwaite went to the break unbeaten on 175 in a total of 342 for eight at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port-of-Spain.

Resuming on 115 from Barbados Pride’s overnight 209 for four, Brathwaite continued to bat solidly in an extended session in which the visitors lost four wickets in adding a further 133 runs.

Shane Dowrich, who started the day on 50, was dismissed for 76 and the other Barbados Pride victims on the second morning were Carlos Brathwaite (0), Jason Holder (17) and Ashley Nurse (29).

The fifth wicket partnership between Brathwaite and Dowrich produced 176 after the pair linked up at 85 for four shortly after lunch on the first day. (HG)
