Hurricanes Whip Volcanoes

The Leewards Hurricanes totally outclassed the Windwards Volcanoes, in the third round match of the regional Cricket season.

Sheeno Berridge snared 5-22 from 10 overs and the Hurricanes swiftly dispatched the Volcanoes, dismissing them for their second lowest total of all-time in the Championship.

West Indies off-spinner Rahkeem Cornwall grabbed 2-7 from six overs and West Indies pacer Alzarri Joseph supported with 2-11 from 10 overs, earning Hurricanes their biggest win (by runs) against the Volcanoes.

No Volcanoes batsman reached 20 and former West Indies Under-19 captain Emmanuel Stewart was the only member of the line-up to reach double figures with 11.

The Hurricanes gained a whopping 22.4 points from the contest, taking their tally for the season to 26.6 and moving them up from last to fourth. Volcanoes, previously second, dropped to third on 32.8, after gaining 3.4 from this match.

Starting the day on 234 for five, Hurricanes extended their first innings until they declared about 35 minutes before lunch, having gained four of the maximum five batting bonus points.

Joseph, coming at eight, again showed his batting prowess to rally the lower-order with a breezy 64 and Jaison Peters added 18 to his overnight score to finish with 57.

After Amir Jangoo was dismissed for 51 to the first ball of the day from Test pacer Shermon Lewis, Joseph played the starring role in a seventh-wicket stand of 49 with Peters and an eighth-wicket stand of 58 with Cornwall to frustrate the Volcanoes.

Lewis was the most successful Volcanoes bowler with 3-80 from 18 overs; left-arm pacer Preston McSween and Josh Thomas took two wickets apiece.
