PORT OF SPAIN – Trinidad and Tobago Red Force crashed to a seven-wicket defeat against Barbados Pride on the final day of the their ninth-round Professional Cricket League four-day match at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva, yesterday.

Pride left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican grabbed five wickets for 54 runs while seamer Kevin Stoute had four for 50 as they combined to trigger a steady procession of wickets, which saw the hosts slip from an overnight position of 117 for one to 240 all out after lunch, setting the Pride a victory target of 71.

The visitors lost an early wicket in Omar Phillips in the second over of the chase but were never in any real danger of falling short, reaching 74 for three shortly after tea to complete the win.

Red Force coach Gus Logie was disappointed with his team’s performance, saying: “It was a meltdown if you want to call it that.”

“Last week we were rejoicing after scoring 400-odd against the Leewards and winning the game in a canter. This week we had one or two changes in personnel and obviously individuals did not step up to the plate in either innings,” Logie added.
