Hodge, Carty help Hurricanes control opening day

BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) – Half-centuries from Montcin Hodge and Keacy Carty helped Leeward Islands Hurricanes control the opening day of their third round match in the Regional Four-Day Championship against leaders Guyana Jaguars here yesterday.

Sent in at Warner Park in the top-of-the-table clash, Hurricanes made slow progress but kept wickets intact, to finish the day on 181 for one.
Hodge was unbeaten on 72 while Carty was not out on 61, with left-handed opener Chesney Hughes chipping in with 31.

Hoping to maintain their unbeaten record in what has been a strong start to the season, Hurricanes flourished early on as Hodge and Hughes put on 58 for the first wicket – a partnership which took the hosts to lunch at 56 without loss.
Hughes faced 87 deliveries and struck five fours before falling in the fourth over after the interval, lbw to fast bowler Romario Shepherd.
Any hopes Jaguars had of making further inroads were then scuppered as Hodge and Carty combined in an unbroken second-wicket stand worth 123, as Hurricanes took charge of the next two sessions.

The right-handed Hodge, short of runs during the recent West Indies A series against Sri Lanka, found his touch in an innings requiring 274 balls and including nine fours.
Carty, meanwhile, struck three fours and a six off 185 balls to record his second half-century in four innings this season.
The 20-year-old, one of the stars from the Youth World Cup last year, has now scored six half-centuries in just 13 first class matches.

Hurricanes reached 102 for one at tea with Hodge unbeaten on 41 and Carty, 20, and together they frustrated Jaguars in the final session as they added 79 runs.
Hurricanes entered the contest nearly just under 10 points adrift of Jaguars on 40.4 points.

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.
