Rahkeem Cornwall slammed an imperious unbeaten hundred as Leeward Islands Hurricanes demolished United States by 162 runs in their opening match of the Regional Super50 here Wednesday.

In the day/night contest at the Coolidge Cricket Ground, the Hurricanes raced to 298 for eight off their 50 overs, with Cornwall marching to 132 off 92 balls, to mark a career-best second regional One-Day hundred.

The United States were never in the hunt and collapsed to 136 in the 39th over, as left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein claimed five for 26 while Cornwall returned with his off-spin to pick up three for 27 and complete a fine all-round performance.
