Daily Nation – BARBADOS PRIDE felt the full fury of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes at Kensington Oval yesterday and were devastated by an innings and four runs in just two days.
- After being rocked on Wednesday’s opening day, when they were ravaged for a paltry 113 by a six-wicket haul by Jeremiah Louis, the Bajans’ second innings was reduced to rubble when they were torn apart for a meagre 116 in 32.3 overs.
- Ashley Nurse followed up his first innings 45 with another top score of 67, including eight fours and three sixes, off 71 balls after being promoted to No.
- It was the first time since 2009, when they also won by an innings at North Stars – with the 34-year-old Tonge taking five second innings wickets – that the Leewards Hurricanes defeated Barbados Pride in the regional first-class championship.
- Facing a first innings deficit of 120 runs, Tonge again jolted the Barbados top order, taking the first four wickets.
- The demolition continued with Justin Greaves trapped leg before wicket by Louis for a first-ball “duck” and Jomel Warrican brilliantly caught at extra cover by Terrance Warde off Tonge.
