Alleyne, Cornwall top PCL 4-day after three rounds
Anthony Alleyne and Rahkeem Cornwall are the top performers following the first three rounds in the Digicel Regional 4-Day Tournament.
Alleyne, the Barbados Pride left-handed opener, has been the most prolific batsman so far with 443 runs from five innings in three matches at an average of 88.60.
He entered the first break in the season with four successive scores of 50 runs or more, including a maiden first-class hundred of 186 against Trinidad & Tobago Red Force in the second round of matches at Queen’s Park Oval in the T&T capital of Port of Spain.
The 23-year-old Alleyne, a former West Indies Under-19 player, is the only batsman to aggregate more than 300 runs for the season – and only six others – including former West Indies batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul – have reached the 200-run threshold.
Cornwall, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes off-spin bowling all-rounder, has been the most successful bowler so far with 19 wickets at an average of 23.68 runs apiece.
The 23-year-old from Antigua & Barbuda has continued in the rich vein of form from the recent West Indies A-Team trip to Sri Lanka, where he was the visitors’ most successful bowler.
He has twice captured five wickets or more in an innings twice this season, including a best bowling performance of 6-82 against two-time defending champions Guyana Jaguars in the second round of matches at Warner Park in the St. Kitts capital of Basseterre.
