Sebastien spins Windwards to the summit
 

St George's, Grenada, CMC – Captain Liam Sebastien produced career-best figures to spin Windward Islands to a comprehensive 197-run win over Leeward Islands with a day to spare in their fifth round, Regional Four-Day match here Sunday.

The right-arm off-spinner captured seven for 49 as the Leewards, set an improbable 360 for victory, slumped to 162 all out at the National Stadium.

Only Test batsman and captain Kieran Powell showed any grit with a top score of 54 while Tonito Wilett scored 41.

Powell and Javier Liburd (10) put on 57 for the first wicket but when Sebastien removed Liburd, the next nine wickets fell for 105 runs.

Sebastien also accounted for Powell, after the West Indies left-hander had pounded 11 boundaries in a breezy 92-ball innings.

Willett also tried making a fist of it, hammering five fours off 74 balls before he was ninth out with defeat beckoning.

Earlier, Devon Smith added just one to his overnight 76 as the Windwards, resuming from 135 for three, were dismissed for 238.

Keddy Lesporis, unbeaten on seven at the start, slammed 42 from 50 balls with six boundaries.

Leg-spinner Anthony Martin claimed five for 58 while seamer Gavin Tonge picked up three for 55.

The Windwards walked away with 17 points for their efforts while the Leewards collected just three.
