Hope a real Force
BARBADOS HAD THEIR PRIDE DENTED by one of their own yesterday.
Kyle Hope, playing in the colours of Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, carved out a solid unbeaten 70 in helping his adopted team to a crushing nine-wicket victory over Barbados Pride in their second-round NAGICO Super50 match at the Queen’s Park Oval.
Barbados Pride were hardly competitive and could only manage a modest 161 in 49.3 overs.
Hope, the leading run-scorer in Barbados’ top league for three successive seasons a few years ago, featured in an unbroken second-wicket partnership of 162 with Kjorn Otley, who finished on 80 not out as the hosts overhauled the target for the loss of just one wicket in 35.5 overs.
