Age is just a number as far as cricket ability is concerned.

Long-serving all-rounder Kevin Stoute, as well as Ashley Nurse and Kemar Roach, not only showcased their batting ability but also the value of experience at Kensington Oval yesterday.

The three stalwarts combined to rescue leaders Barbados Pride from a pathetic position, but Trinidad and Tobago Red Force still held the upper hand on the opening day of their fifth series match in the Regional Four-Day Cricket Championship.

Sent in on a grassy but patchy pitch, after play started half-hour late because of rain, Barbados Pride recovered from the early trouble of 47 for six to score a respectable 209 in 60 overs. (EZS)
