McCaskie does Pride proud

PORT OF SPAIN – Zachary McCaskie hit his second half-century of the match to anchor last year’s champions Barbados Pride to a seven-wicket win yesterday against hosts Trinidad & Tobago Red Force in the West Indies Four-Day Championship.

McCaskie followed up his first innings 92 with an unbeaten 55, and Pride successfully chased 118 to clinch their second victory in a topsy-turvy season on the final day of their fourth-round match at Queen’s Park Oval.

The 26-year-old opener was not out on 29 overnight, when Pride went to bed on 52 for two, and he reached his half-century from 84 balls after he lofted leg-spinner Imran Khan for a straight six and swept him for a single to deep square leg off successive balls.

McCaskie added 46 unbroken with Jonathan Drakes, and formalised the result when he drove off-spinner Bryan Charles to mid-on for a single about 55 minutes after the start of play. (CMC)
