St. John’s, Antigua, SKN PULSE – The Hurricanes have been a dominant force thus far in 2017. Superb fielding, improved batting and a revamped bowling unit have propelled them to success thus far in the Regional Super50 competiton.

Campbell’s 5-wicket haul, Powell’s half century and Hodge’s half century in yesterday’s game against Trinidad and Tobago was a clear indication that the Leeward Islands Hurricanes are playing some good cricket this season.

Having won the toss the Leewards decided to field first in their 4th Regional Super50 encounter and restricted the Red Force to 226/9.

Jason Campbell, the Pennyless All-stars player who resides in Nevis utilized his chance and bagged 5 wickets for 37 runs, his first List A five wicket haul. Young Joseph picked up two wickets.

Nicholas Alexis led the charge for the Trinidad and Tobago team with a half century while Imran Khan remained not out with 45. Solid contributions also came from Kejorn Ottley and Jason Mohammed.

 ​The informed Kieran Powell and fellow opener Montcin Hodge starred in a 113 run partnership before Powell was stumped off the bowling of Pierre for 52. A collapse by the Leewards quickly gave hope to the Trinidadians who were able to collect all 10 wickets for a mere 100 runs after such a fantastic start.

West Indies player Marlon Samuels wasn’t able to get going as he was caught by Emrit off the bowling of Pierre.

Unfortunately for the Leeward Islands, the game came down the wire and the lower order batsmen for the Leewards weren’t able to save the day. The match ended with Shannon Gabriel picking up the final wicket as Trinidad & Tobago Red Force beat the Leeward Islands Hurricanes by 11 runs in the day/night WICB Regional Super50 encounter which was held at Coolidge Cricket Ground.

With the loss, the Leeward Islands remain ontop in the zone with 14 points while Trinidad and Tobago follow closely behind with 3 wins and 1 loss, the exact same record as the Hurricanes.

Scores: RED FORCE 226-9 off 50 overs (Nicholas Alexis 50, Imran Khan 45 not out, Jason Mohammed 32, Kjorn Ottley 32; Jason Campbell 5-37) HURRICANES 215 all out off 48.4 overs (Montcin Hodge 82, Kieran Powell 52; Kharry Pierre 4-40)
