TAROUBA, Trinidad (CMC) — Spin-bowling triumvirate Jomel Warrican, Hayden Walsh and Kenroy Williams reversed decades of heartaches for Barbados Pride batsmen when they bowled the visitors to a 207-run victory over Trinidad & Tobago Red Force in the Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.

Left-arm spinner Warrican was the most impactful, grabbing 3-13 from 12 overs to finish with match figures of 9-84 to earn the Player-of-the-Match award, as the Red Force, chasing 324 for victory, were bowled out for 116 just before tea on the final day of their seventh-round match at the Brian Lara Cricket Ground.

Leg-spinner Walsh took 3-41 from 14 overs, and Williams bagged 3-46 from 21.5 overs and had the privilege of formalising the result when he had Bryan Charles caught at slip for 13.

Red Force Captain Denesh Ramdin was again the glue that held his side together, but he was unable to unleash another hundred like the first innings. He hit the top score of 24. No other batsman passed 20.

The result meant that Pride — after starting the match placed fifth in the league table with 56.8 points — earned 16.4 points and Red Force – after entering the match positioned third with 67.6 points — gained six points.

Earlier, Pride added 33 to their overnight total at a little under a run-a-ball before they declared their second innings on 221 for seven.
