BASSETERRE – Fourteen wickets tumbled as title hopefuls Barbados Pride grabbed the edge over Leeward Islands Hurricanes on the opening day of their crucial final round Professional Cricket League match yesterday.

Opting to bat first, Hurricanes made 119 all out, half-hour before tea at Warner Park and Pride finished the day on 145 for four – a lead of 26 runs heading into day two.

The visitors were 84 for one at one stage but lost unnecessary wickets – three for 21 runs – towards the end to concede some of their advantage.

Opener Omar Phillips has so far topscored with 42 while partner and captain Kraigg Brathwaite chipped in with 31 and Test player Shai Hope, 27. (CMC)
