Holder rips through Windwards
A five-wicket haul by Chemar Holder backed up an impressive batting performance by Barbados Pride yesterday as they took control of their contest against the Windward Islands Volcanoes on the second day of their sixth-round fixture at Kensington Oval.
Kyle Mayers, unbeaten overnight on 121, passed the 500-run mark for the season en route to the top score of 140, but the star of the day was fast bowler Holder who undermined the batting effort of the visitors with pace and hostility.
Holder took five for 73 as the Volcanoes folded for 258 in reply to the Pride’s imposing 417 all out. With a lead of 159, Barbados opted not to enforce the follow and reached six without loss in one over in their second innings.
Holder dealt the Volcanoes a serious blow even before the fall of the first wicket when a short delivery struck opening batsman Desron Maloney on the helmet. Maloney received attention from the physio on the field but was unable to continue, forcing lunch to be taken with one delivery still remaining in Holder’s over.
