WATCH LIVE: Regional 4-Day, Round 5

St John's, Antigua - Day 1 of Round 5 of the Regional 4-Day Tournament starts today with three matches being played across the Caribbean.

At 10am Eastern Caribbean Time, the Windward Islands and Leeward Islands meet at the Grenada National Stadium. The last seven matches between the two sides have each produced a winner, with the Leewards holding a 4-3 edge.

The Leewards can also take confidence in the knowledge that they were triumphant on the previous three occasions they played in the Spice Isle in 2001, 2005 and 2008 – so the Windwards will have their work cut out to defend home soil.

An hour later, at 11am Eastern Caribbean Time (10am Jamaica Time), Barbados visit leaders Jamaica at Sabina Park. The Barbadians have lost their previous three matches against the Jamaicans, including twice at the match venue two years ago, although their previous victory was four years ago at the Frank Worrell Memorial Ground in Trinidad.

The visitors’ previous victory in Jamaica came seven years ago, when they prevailed by an innings and 31 runs, and they can lean on this, as well as their hosts’ defeat in the previous round of matches as motivation.

Finally, in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago host the Combined Campuses & Colleges at the Queen's Park Oval from 3pm Eastern Caribbean Time. The match marks the return of West Indies allrounder, Kieron Pollard.

You can watch or follow all three matches live.
