Shamarh Brooks marked a return to form with an impressive century yesterday to help put Barbados Pride in a commanding position to force a victory against Leeward Islands Hurricanes in their fourth round Regional Four-Day Championship match in St Kitts.
The 31-year-old Brooks hit 116, and with wicketkeeper Shane Dowrich and the consistent Kyle Mayers scoring half-centuries, Barbados gained a significant first innings lead by posting 398 in reply to the hosts’ 181 on the second day at Warner Park.
Trailing by 217, the Hurricanes reached ten without loss at stumps in their second innings, facing a tall order to deny the Pride a third successive win.
Resuming on 42 with Barbados on 108 for two, Brooks completed his seventh first-class century and teamed up with Dowrich and Mayers to put Barbados in the driver’s seat. (CMC)
