Jamaica – 117 for 4 at lunch
by Keith Holder
It has been a keen second morning on the second day of the semi-finals in the WICB first-class championship.
At Kensington Oval, Jamaica, starting the day on 52 for one, were 117 for for four off 41 overs at lunch in reply to Barbados’ first innings total of 245 all out off 77.3 overs.
The not out batsmen were Jermaine Blackwood on 37 and captain Tamar Lambert, nought.
Today, left-hander John Campbell, who resumed on 25, was first dismissed, leg before wicket by left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn for 31 as he essayed a sweep with the score 67.
Nightwatchman Damion Jacobs, pushing forward, was caught at silly point by Omar Phillips off Benn for 21 from his overnight nought to make it 98 for three.
And Andre McCarthy, driving, was caught at short midwicket by Kraigg Brathwaite off off-spinner Ashley Nurse for nought, leaving Jamaica on 113 for four.
Last evening, Nkrumah Bonner was leg before wicket by Nurse for 26.
At the Queen’s Park Oval, Trinidad & Tobago, resuming on 36 for three, were 81 for four off 29 overs in reply to the Windward Islands’ first innings of 248 all out in a rain-shortened session, which led to lunch being taken half-an-hour late.
At the crease were Evin Lewis on 27 and Denesh Ramdin, nine.
Left-arm pacer Delorn Johnson had two for 27.
