FOUR-DAY: Barbados Pride struggling at 59-3 in response to Harpy Eagles 436

SUMMARY:  Guyana Harpy Eagles 436 all out from 142.1 overs (Veerasammy Permaul 90*, Kevlon Anderson 87, Kevin Sinclair 72, Tevin Imlach 55, Tagenarine Chanderpaul 40, Matthew Nandu 28; Kemar Roach 2-52, Jason Holder 2-52,  Jomel Warrican 2-98) lead Barbados Pride 59-3 from 19 overs (Jonathan Drakes 20*, Kraigg Brathwaite 14; Isai Thorne 2-19) by 377 runs


Veerasammy Permaul’s highest First-Class score of an unbeaten 90, Kevin Sinclair’s fluent 72, and late wickets mean it is advantage Guyana Harpy Eagles at the end of day two against Barbados Pride in the West Indies Four-Day Championship at the Coolidge Cricket ground, Antigua.

Along with the half-centuries from Kevlon Anderson (87) and Tevin Imlach (55) on day one, Harpy Eagles reached 436 all out and have, thus far, limited Barbados Pride to 59-3.

Harpy Eagles started the day 231-5, and Sinclair quickly progressed from his overnight score of five. He looked set on scoring a second consecutive century this season when he fell for 72 (9x4s) from 92 balls.

Permaul played a patient hand as he toyed with Pride’s bowlers, striking ten fours and three sixes in his 151-ball stay at the crease, which capped a vastly improved batting performance for the Eagles.

Gudakesh Motie added to the Eagles’ run feast with three maximums and two fours in his 37.

Isai Thorne rattled Pride as he struck twice within three balls – he removed Zachary McCaskie for eight, then Shian Brathwaite without a score.

Substitute Raymond Perez produced a direct hit to run out Kraigg Brathwaite for 14 as the Eagles ran rampant on Pride.

It could have been four down as Kemol Savory grassed an opportunity created by Kevin Sinclair with Raymon Reifer on one.

Jonathan Drakes (20*) is alongside Reifer at the close of play, and Pride still needs 228 more runs to avoid the follow-on.
