Shillingford sets up intriguing last day

Kingston, Jamaica - Shane Shillingford produced a sensational second innings bowling spell to give the Windward Islands hope of pulling off an outright victory over leaders, Jamaica.

Shiillingford, returning from suspension, having corrected his action picked up seven wickets in the second innings of the game and finished his overall bowling performance with ten wickets.

Jamaica started the day on 26/0 and Shillingford got two early wickets for the visitors, removing both openers. Nkrumah Bonner and Jermaine Blackwood repaired the early damage with an 80-run partnership that helped steady the Jamaican innings. However, Shillingford would return to break the partnership and also send both batsmen back to the pavilion in a short space of time.

It soon became 122/4 with the Jamaicans in a deficit of 22 runs. But just when things were looking up for the Windwards, wicket-keeper Carlton Baugh came to Jamaica's rescue.

The out-of-favour West Indies wicket-keeper hit an unbeaten 89 to keep Jamaica in the game. Captain, Tamar Lambert, also provided good support, stroking a patient 67.

However, when the Jamaica captain was out, wickets began following around Baugh, who continued steadily. He faced 141 balls, hitting four boundaries and three sixes.

In building crucial partnerships with the lower order, Baugh managed to take the Jamaicans to 275 before he ran out of partners. Shillingford had nabbed away at the hosts until he finished with 7-116. Devon Smith also chipped in with 2-33.

It meant the Windwards needed 254 runs for victory once Jamaica's deficit of 22 runs were deducted. Openers Devon Smith and Tyrone Theophile both saw out the last nine overs of the day. Both batsmen are unbeaten on 15 each.

Day 4 starts at 11am Eastern Caribbean Time (10am Jamaica Time) tomorrow, with the Windwards needing a further 223 runs to win.
