AN IMPRESSIVE unbeaten century by Justin Greaves orchestrated a remarkable recovery that lifted Barbados Pride to 297 for six yesterday on the opening day of the tenth-round Digicel Regional 4-Day Tournament match against the Jamaica Scorpions at Kensington Oval.

Greaves recorded his maiden first-class century ten minutes before the close of play when he pulled a delivery from left-arm spinner Dennis Bulli to deep mid-wicket for a single. By stumps he was not out on 104 off 182 deliveries in 215 minutes with eight boundaries. 

Greaves and fellow all-rounder Kenroy Williams (82) set the foundation for a productive opening day for the home side after they were forced to bat first. Their century stand lifted Barbados from an uncomfortable 65 for four prior to lunch and 98 for five less than half-hour into the afternoon session.
