BASSETERRE – Wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich narrowly missed out on his fourth first-class hundred while Roston Chase and tail-ender Kemar Roach notched half-centuries as Barbados Pride took command of their final round Professional Cricket League game against Leeward Islands Hurricanes yesterday.

Resuming from their overnight 145 for four, Pride piled up 436 all out at Warner Park, courtesy of 96 from Dowrich, 62 from Chase and a career-best 53 from Roach.

Part-time off-spinner Chase then removed the resurgent Kieran Powell for eight with the score on 11, to leave the hosts struggling on 18 for one at the close – still requiring a further 299 runs to make Pride bat again.

Pride resumed the second day here needing to push on strongly and did so thanks to a 96-run fifth wicket partnership between Dowrich and Chase. (CMC)
