THE FINAL day of the second Barbados Pride trial match at Kensington Oval between Kevin Stoute’s XI and Omar Phillips XI was abandoned without a ball being  bowled yesterday.

Umpires Gregory Brathwaite and Ryan Willoughby made the official announcement at 12:50 p.m. that play would not be possible because of persistent rain and a wet outfield.

Stoute’s XI were dismissed on the first day for a modest 174, to which Phillips XI replied with 479 for five.

The two trial matches in preparation for the second Professional Cricket League first-class championship have revealed that Barbados’ cricket has a rich crop of batsmen for the future.
