The Barbadsos Pride will be looking for their second straight victory in a bid to keep the pressure on the two front-runners, when they face the Leeward Islands Hurricanes on home soil at Kensington Oval tomorrow in the WICB Professional Cricket League Regional 4-Day tournament.
The hosts gained a welcomed boost, when they rolled over the Volcanoes in the previous round and will want to take advantage of the visiting side, which will be fighting to avoid their fifth straight defeat this season.
Barbados currently sit in third position on 44 points, just behind the second placed Jamaica Scorpions on 50 and thr Guyana Jaguars on 70.
The Hurricanes are currently last with just 10 points from their four matches.
The Pride have won the last six matches against the Hurricanes – including four by an innings – and will be hoping this trend continues, as they seek to enter the long break in the Tournament poised to strike if the Jaguars or the Scorpions stumble the rest of the way.
The job has been made a tad more difficult for the Hurricanes with Alzarri Joseph, their leading bowler this season, also away with the West Indies Under-19s in Grenada.
In Antigua, the resurgent Scorpions and leaders Jaguars meet in a top of the table clash, while the Windward Islands Volcanoes and Trinidad & Tobago Red Force will meet in St Lucia.
