Hat-tricks for Collins and Athanaze as Barbados beat Leewards

North Sound, Antigua – Pedro Collins spurred Barbados to a dramatic six-wicket victory over Leeward Islands with a memorable hat-trick in the WICB First-Class championship on Sunday.

The experienced left-arm pacer removed opener Gavin Williams, Leewards captain Steve Liburd, and newcomer Kerry Mentore in successive balls, as Leewards, leading by 26 on first innings, were dismissed for 82 in their second innings about half-hour after the lunch interval on the third day of their sixth round match at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.

Rampaul's perfect ball snares Sachin

Chennai, India – “It was the perfect ball at the perfect time.” That is how West Indies fast bowler Ravi Rampaul described the superb delivery which he produced to remove India’s batting legend Sachin Tendulkar in Sunday’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Group B match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

Rampaul takes 5-51 but Windies fall

Chennai, India – West Indies suffered another batting collapse as they fell to India by 80 runs in their final ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Group B match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk.

The Windies slipped from 154-2 in the 31st over to be bowled out for 188 with 42 balls left in reply to India’s 268 all out in 49.1 overs. The weak batting undid a career-best spell from fast bowler Ravi Rampaul, in his first World Cup match, and another fine innings from Devon Smith, the in-form left-handed opener.

Windies to face Pakistan in World Cup quarter-final on Wednesday

Chennai, India – Following Sunday’s defeat against India the West Indies ended in fourth position in Group B of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. The result meant that the Windies still booked a spot in the quarter-finals.

The Windies will now travel to Dhaka, Bangladesh for their quarter-final against Pakistan, who topped Group A. The match will be played at the Sher-e-Bangla Stadium on Wednesday in a day/night contest at 2.30 pm (4.30 am Eastern Caribbean Time/3.30 am Jamaica Time).

Windies aim to get better of India

CHENNAI, India –  Already with one foot in the quarter-finals of the World Cup, West Indies will look to confirm their place there when they meet pre-tournament favourites India here Sunday.

Bangladesh’s heavy 206-run defeat to South Africa virtually sealed a spot in the next round for the Caribbean side and once they avoid a blow-out at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, they will be the final side from Group B to advance and do battle with the top eight teams starting next week.
