Windward Island Volcanoes Captain, Kaveem Hodge, has described his teams performance against the 5-time defending champions, Guyana Jaguars as “satisfying”.
Resuming from their overnight total of 46 for one, Volcanoes faced a huge challenge to save the match.
“It was really satisfying the way they guys put up their hands on that final day,” Hodge said. He added, “On the final day the objective was pretty straight forward…it was just to bat the entire day just to save the entire game.”
Hodge shared a record 263 – unbroken partnership – for the second wicket with veteran Devon Smith to erase any hopes of their opponents gaining the inside track to victory.
“It was really good to be on the other end watching Devon’s masterclass…was fortunate enough to bat with him and he talked me through my innings,” Hodge stated.
However, play was interrupted by inclement weather conditions about half-hour after tea. Play never resumed.
Devon Smith was unbeaten on 147 and Hodge unbeaten on 100. The match ending in a draw.
The result meant that Jaguars are second on 60.8 points, trailing Pride by 23.4, and Volcanoes are now fourth on 50.
