Bajans washed out
While rain was giving most of Trinidad and Tobago a headache, it proved to be the saviour for Red Force cricket team on the final day of the West Indies Cricket Board Professional Cricket League four-day match against the Barbados Pride at Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain yesterday.
From an overnight position of 165 for three, the Red Force lost two early wickets yesterday, with Jason Mohammed failing to add to his overnight score of 32 and Denesh Ramdin walking back to the pavilion for 22 as the home side reached 213 for five when rain intervened just over an hour into the final day, ensuring the match ended in a draw.
When the rain came, the hosts were still 51 runs behind the Pride’s first innings total of 360 all out.
The match could have still gone either way but no play was possible for the remainder of the day and the umpires finally called off the match after a 4 p.m. inspection.
