BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WICB) — Hayden Walsh Jr grabbed four wickets as the Leeward Islands crushed the Combined Campuses & Colleges at Warner Park early on Day 4 in Round 1 of the Regional 4-Day tournament.
The final day’s play started on a knife’s edge with both teams still in with a shout of pulling off an outright victory. CCC needed 152 runs for victory while the Leeward Islands needed six wickets to win.
Walsh Jr struck early in the day removing Steven Jacobs for 22. The CCC skipper could only add two runs to his overnight total. Only three runs were added so far in the morning as the CCC were half their batting down for 113 runs.
Twelve runs later, they lost Kavem Hodge as Walsh struck again. At the other end, Chadwick Walton was battling back for the visitors. Overnight on 36, he would pass his 50 as the wicket-keeper slowed down his rate of scoring compared to Day 3.
But Kelbert Walters would strike, getting Walton caught behind to leave the CCC 144/7 and their last hope was gone. Still with over 100 runs to go, it looked dim for the CCC to pull off a victory.
Anthony Martin and Walsh Jr would wrap things up as play was extended for a half-an-hour because the CCC were nine wickets down by 12pm. They were eventually bowled out for 189 runs, losing by 72 runs.
Walsh Jr finished as Leeward’s pick of the bowlers, taking 4-81. Gavin Tonge had started the damage yesterday but failed to add to his three wickets today. Martin finished with a couple of wickets.
Jahmar Hamilton was named Man of the Match for his magnificent 119 runs in the second innings, that led to the victory for the home team.
