Solid all-round cricket, partially inspired by a marathon spell by Keon Harding, put Barbados Pride in a commanding position over Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at the end of the second day of the fifth series of the West Indies Championship at Kensington Oval yesterday.

The home side closed on 127 for two, which represents an overall lead of 161 with two days remaining. The Pride were dismissed for 209 on the opening day and when the Red Force resumed yesterday on 52 for one, they collapsed to 175 all out with Keon Harding taking five for 57.

Captain Kraigg Brathwaite (58) and Shane Moseley produced a century opening stand to add to the first innings lead of 34. Brathwaite fell before the close, quickly followed by Shamar Brooks, but Moseley remained unbeaten on 49 with Justin Greaves on three. (PH)
