Greaves hits maiden 100 to frustrate Scorpions

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Justin Greaves struck a maiden first class hundred to help prop up Barbados Pride on the opening day of their final round game in the Regional four-day championship against Jamaica Scorpions.Sent in at Kensington Oval, Pride were in danger of collapse at 98 for five before Greaves arrived to pummel an attractive unbeaten 104 which propelled the hosts to 297 for six at the close here yesterday.Kenroy Williams chipped in with a career-best 82 while opener Kyle Corbin added 51 and West Indies one-day player Ashley Nurse, 33 not out.Seamer Derval Green (2-36) and left-arm spinner Dennis Bulli (2-86) both finished with two wickets apiece.ROCKY STARTFielding a weakened side with most of their first team players on West Indies duty, Pride endured a rocky start as they lost several early wickets.Left-hander Anthony Alleyne perished for one with the score on 25 in the fifth over of the morning, edging a defenisve prod at fast bowler Jerome Taylor to Jermaine Blackwood at second slip.With Pride in turmoil, Greaves came to the fore, anchoring two critical partnerships to turn the innings around. He added 124 for the sixth wicket with Williams and 75 with Nurse in an unbroken seventh wicket stand.The 23-year-old, better known for his right-arm pace, faced 182 balls in just over 3-1/2 hours at the crease and counted eight fours.last_img read more
