Cornwall denies Pride
BASSETERRE – Barbados Pride pushed for an improbable win but came up short as all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall ensured Leeward Islands Hurricanes got the better of the exchanges in their drawn opening round Digicel Four-day contest yesterday.
Set 305 for victory off a minimum of 76 overs, Pride tested the Hurricanes’ mettle through half-centuries from Anthony Alleyne, who made 84, Shamarh Brooks, 59, and Test batsman Roston Chase, who was unbeaten on 51, before ending the final day at Warner Park on 235 for five.
Cornwall captured four for 101 to follow up his first innings five-wicket haul, as he finished with match figures of nine for 218.
The 23-year-old West Indies “A” player had earlier lashed his second half-century of the game with a topscore of 60, allowing Hurricanes to declare their second innings on 164 for six just inside the first hour. (CMC)
