Leewards heading for victory


The Leeward Islands Hurricanes were on course for victory against the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, reaching 150 at the tea interval, chasing 222 to win.

Devon Thomas put the visitors on top with an aggressive 65 while Kieran Powell hit 41 in a 93-run third wicket stand that took the game away from Denesh Ramdin’s men.

Two dropped catches did not help the hosts, however two strikes before the break gave them hope of pulling off an unlikely win.

Khan was responsible for the late fightback, removing Powell, while Khary Pierre accounted for Thomas on the stroke of tea with the Hurricanes still 72 runs away from victory.
