The resumption of play after lunch in the Super50 contest between Barbados Pride and Leeward Islands Hurricanes, has been delayed due to an issue with the lights.

Barbados posted 181 for nine after winning the toss and opting to bat, but a technical issue with the lights has delayed the response from the Hurricanes for more than 90 minutes.

Chief executive officer of Kensington Oval Management Inc. (KOMI) Ben Toppin told the media that an additional generator is being brought in to power the lights at the southeastern end of the ground. The remaining light towers are currently working.

According to Toppin, the problem seems to be related to a burst main earlier in the day that may have flooded the underground connection due to the high water table following the recent rains. (PH)
