Mayers smashes 48-ball ton for Pride

TAROUBA  – Opener Kyle Mayers struck a stunning 48-ball hundred as unbeaten Barbados Pride escaped the clutches of the adverse weather to trounce luckless Windward Islands Volcanoes by eight wickets under Duckworth-Lewis-Stern, and storm to the top of the Regional Super50 Cup standings.

With Pride in pursuit of a revised target of 148 off 21 overs at the Brian Lara Stadium here Wednesday, the left-handed Mayers belted a stroke-filled unbeaten 107, helping his side to their target in the 15th over and to their second win in three matches.

He faced 52 balls and clobbered nine fours and nine sixes, racing to his fifty off 30 balls in the seventh over before bringing up his fourth List A century off only another 18 balls in the 14th over.

“It’s just a matter of staying as still as possible,” said Man Of The Match Mayers. (CMC)
