Another washout at Windward
NOT A BALL WILL BE BOWLED for the second straight day in the second round match between Barbados Pride and the Jamaica Franchise in the WICB Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day Tournament, due to torrential rain today in Barbados.
The convergence of two weather systems over the island continued to bring heavy rainfall and soaked the Windward Sports Club ground, where the match is being played.
The two teams arrived at the Windward Sports Club, which is located in the rural neighbourhood of Lucas Street in the south-eastern parish of St Philip, ahead of the rescheduled start – but several parts of the ground were under water with no significant improvement in the weather over the last 24 hours.
Umpires Gregory Brathwaite and Joel Wilson informed the two captains – Kraigg Brathwaite (Pride) and Tamar Lambert (Jamaica Franchise) – around 10 this morning that play for the day was abandoned, due to the wet conditions.
The umpires have also advised the two teams that play is again re-scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. on tomorrow’s third day – weather and ground conditions permitting. (PR)
