A powerful unbeaten century from Jonathan Carter handed the Barbados Pride a sensational four-wicket win over T&T Red Force on a day they began with it all to do at Kensington Oval.

In pursuit of a sizable 309 for victory, things began in bleak fashion when the overnight openers Shane Mosley and Rashidi Boucher were sent packing early.  Mosley only managed to add three to his overnight total as he was caught by Jeremy Solozano off the bowling of Daniel St Clair.

 Boucher departed just three overs later when he was caught, for 15, by Joshua Da Silva off Ravindaranth Rampaul to leave the squad wobbling at 24 for 2.  Aaron Jones was next to be dismissed when he bowled for 11 by Bryan Charles to leave the team at 53 for 3.

Carter, however, began the recovery effort and after losing Kevin Stoute (11) and Nicholas Kirton (12) as early partners, put on a massive 128 for the sixth wicket with Shamar Springer.

 The middle-order batsman then added another 94 for the seventh wicket with Tevyn Walcott, who was also unbeaten on 48.  Springer was good for a solid 66 from 105 balls. 

Red Force bowler Yannic Cariah was unable to repeat his first innings heroics as he claimed 1 for 30.  Daniel St Clair was the team’s most successful bowler after ending with 2 for 59.  The Pride reached their target a 326 for 6.
