Rain gets better of Volcanoes, Pride
ROSEAU – Play on the third day was abandoned without a ball being bowled between Windward Islands Volcanoes and Barbados Pride in the Digicel Regional 4-Day Tournament yesterday, due to wet conditions caused by rain.
Barbados Pride were set to resume from their overnight total of 137 for six, but persistent showers throughout the morning prompted umpires Joel Wilson and Jonathan Blades to abandon play for the day at Windsor Park, shortly following a scheduled 11 a.m. inspection.
Only 48.2 overs of play were possible over the first two days of the match, as the weather dealt a blow to the two teams, who are aiming to either keep up or catch up with the front-runners.
Barbados Pride entered the match in third place in the standings on 43.2 points and are yet to earn a point in the match. Volcanoes were fifth on 35.2 points and have so far earned three from two bowling points and one full pace bowling point. (CMC)
