Pride stop Force
BARBADOS PRIDE clinched a place in the semifinal of the Nagico Super50 with a close three-wicket victory over defending champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in the final Group A match at Queen’s Park Oval last night.
The 2014 champions defied half-centuries from Darren Bravo and Denesh Ramdin to come away with a tense win to secure the runners-up spot in the group and their place in Thursday’s semifinal at the same venue from 1:30 p.m.
Yesterday, the Red Force, sent in to bat, were dismissed to 226 with Bravo top-scoring with 82 off 97 balls, which included three sixes and four fours.
The left-hander starred in an 89-run stand for the fifth wicket with Ramdin, who hit 57 off 53 balls with five fours and a six, to help the hosts post a competitive total.
