SUMMARY: Guyana Harpy Eagles 371 all out from 121.1 overs (Matthew Nandu 126, Kevin Sinclair 43, Veerasammy Permaul 37, Leon Johnson 26, Kemol Savory 25, Shamar Joseph 20; Jair McAllister 3-43, Chaim Holder 3-72, Akeem Jordan 2-54) and 91-8 from 33 overs (Matthew Nandu 16, Chandrapaul Hemraj 15; Akeem Jordan 3-18, Keon Harding 3-37) vs Barbados Pride 220-9 from 91.2 overs (Shayne Moseley 65, Shamarh Brooks 51, Shamar Springer 35*; Veerasammy Permaul 4-53, Shamar Joseph 3-65, Kevin Sinclair 2-33). Guyana Harpy Eagles lead by 242 runs with one day remaining


Guyana Harpy Eagles left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul took four wickets, but Barbados Pride held the upper hand at stumps on day three of the first round clash in the West Indies Four-Day Championship at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

With a massive lead of 151 on first innings, Harpy Eagles were hoping to solidify their dominance on the game.

Instead, several batsmen were guilty of poor shot selection and that led to a massive collapse. Harpy Eagles closed the day 91-8, ahead by 242 runs with a day to play.

Ideally, Leon Johnson’s would have hoped to end the day in a far better position, given the work of the bowlers in limiting Barbados Pride earlier in the day.

First innings centurion Matthew Nandu has so far topscored with 16 and Chandrapaul Hemraj made 15, as Akeem Jordan took 3-18 and Keon Harding 3-37.

Permaul is not out on 11; with him is Nial Smith yet to score.

Earlier, Pride, resuming on 105-3, were held to 220-9 in response to Harpy Eagles’ 371, with skipper Shane Dowrich unable to bat due to an illness.

Shayne Moseley made 65 and stand-in skipper Shamarh Brooks 51, as Permaul took four wickets and Kevin Sinclair three.
