PORT OF SPAIN – Barbados Pride pulled off an emphatic victory over Trinidad and Tobago Red Force yesterday when they crushed their perennial arch-rivals by 292 runs, to notch their first win of the newly minted Digicel Four-day championship.

The visitors secured victory in the first over after lunch on the final day of the second round contest as Red Force crumbled for an embarrassing 99 in their second innings, in pursuit of an unlikely target of 392 at Queen’s Park Oval.

Pride’s assault was led by captain Kevin Stoute, who snatched three for 14, while fellow seamer, Test bowler Kemar Roach finished with three 33.

Resuming the day on 57 for three, Red Force lost their last six wickets for 42 runs – with opener Jeremy Solozano again unable to bat because of illness. (CMC)
