AT EGSC MOLINEAUX - Barbados v Windward Islands
The Windward Islands shut out the Barbadian tail on the morning of Day 3 to complete a first innings win, though their efforts for an outright victory fell well short.

Gabriel fell on the stroke of Lunch though as the Windwards went into the break on 47/3, leading by 123 runs. Persaud had taken two wickets for Barbados.
After the break, George continued on strongly, trying to build partnerships along the way. It was a tricky period for the Windwards, who led by 146 runs when Gian Benjamin fell for 7, but felt it was still too risky to declare.
George went on to hit 52 as the Windwards went to Tea at 135/8. By that time, Persaud had nabbed 5-45. The Windwards would declare some time after Tea on 181/9, setting Barbados 258 runs to win.
