Hodge century helps Windwards dominate Leewards

GEORGETOWN, Guyana, CMC – Kavem Hodge played a truly superb captain’s knock, stroking the first century of the WICB Regional Under-19 Championship, as Windward Islands dominated the Leeward Islands on the second day of their third round clash  yesterday.

The 18-year-old from Dominica showed he is a cut above his peers as he played with great maturity and skill to carve out an unbeaten 155 on a Bourda pitch, which offered some turn to the spinners.

His knock piloted the Windwards to 340 for eight off just 76 overs – an impressive scoring rate of close to 4.5 per over.

The defending champs have an overall lead of 98 runs after they dismissed the Leewards for 242 in the morning session.

A short right-hander who favours the drive and cut, Hodge has so far counted 18 fours off 238 balls in just over five hours at the crease. He reached his century an hour after tea when he clipped a ball through the onside for two. The landmark came off 176 balls with 11 fours.

As dominant as Hodge was, he had to share some of the spotlight with the flamboyant Sunil Ambris who stroked an exciting 84 in a sensational 149-run, fourth wicket stand at better than a run-a-minute in mid-afternoon.
