Pride aiming to trump Red Force
NEW LEADERS Barbados Pride will be seeking to extend their three-match winning streak when they face arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago Red Force in a fifth-round encounter in the West Indies Four-Day Cricket Championship starting today at Kensington Oval.
Pride are flying high following a big win against the Leeward Islands Hurricanes that catapulted them to the top of the standings on 65.2 points, 16.2 more than five-time defending champions, Guyana Jaguars, who are on 49.
Collecting another big haul of points to put distance between themselves and the remaining teams will be vital in their bid to break the spell as bridesmaids for the last five seasons.
But the Pride could have their hands full with a Red Force side that wants to get their season back on track, after a couple of setbacks.
The visitors are third in the table on 41.6 points after settling for a draw against the Windward Islands Volcanoes in a rain-affected fourth-round match. (EZS/PR)
