Mayers ton lifts Pride
Kyle Mayers hit his second century of the season off the Windward Islands Volcanoes to pilot Barbados Pride into a strong position after they were invited to bat yesterday, in the sixth-round contest of the Regional 4-Day Cricket Championship at Kensington Oval.
Barbados ended the opening day on 357 for seven with Mayers unbeaten on 121 off 135 balls in 193 minutes and Jomel Warrican not out on ten.
Mayers, who struck three sixes and 16 fours, shared half-century stands with Kevin Stoute, who batted fluently in scoring 46, and Kemar Roach, who counter-attacked effectively in scoring 41.
Several batsmen got starts but only Mayers, who moved his aggregate to 498 runs, took full advantage of an attack that seemed powerless to keep the scoring rate in check. (PH)
