Red Force on Jaguars heels after massive win

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Trinidad and Tobago Red Force are now nipping at the heels of leaders Guyana Jaguars, after their big win in the third round of the Regional Four-Day Championship last weekend.

Red Force trounced Windward Islands Volcanoes by 10 wickets inside three days at Queens Park Oval, after yet another strong batting display where they piled up 402 and then dismissed Volcanoes cheaply in both innings, to be left with a simple victory target of 24.

Captain Denesh Ramdin and Jason Mohammed both got hundreds for Red Force – two of three in the game after Devon Smith also reached three figures in Volcanoes second innings.

With the success, Red Force moved into second place in the standings on 41.4 points, just five points behind three-time reigning champions Jaguars who escaped defeat on the final day of their contest against Leeward Islands Hurricanes.

Jaguars, who has led from the start of the tournament last month, suffered a batting meltdown at Warner Park in St Kitts and were forced to follow on, after Hurricanes raised 412 for nine declared in their first innings.

The visitors needed veteran left-hander Shiv Chanderpaul’s 77th first hundred – a stellar 109 – to thwart Hurricanes on the final day and earn a draw.

Hurricanes, who started the round in second spot, now lie third on 38.6 points, with the top three teams all unbeaten so far in the tournament.

Barbados Pride, who drew with Jamaica Scorpions in the rain-hit day/night affair at Sabina Park, are fourth on 23.2 points while Scorpions are fifth on 18.2.

Volcanoes, who have lost two of three so far, lie bottom on 15.6 points.

In round four bowling off on Thursday, Red Force host Jaguars at the Brian Lara Stadium in a top-of-the-table day/night clash, Hurricanes welcome Scorpions to Warner Park  while Pride travel to Arnos Vale Stadium to take on Volcanoes.
