An outstanding unbeaten century by Shayne Moseley and a fiery late burst by the Barbados Pride pacers took the home side within sight of victory over the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force by the end of the third day of the fifth-round fixture of the West Indies Championship yesterday at Kensington Oval.
Set 377 to win after Barbados declared at 342 for five, the visitors stuttered to 48 for four when bad light ended play with six overs still scheduled to be bowled.
This brought an end to a captivating day of intense action on a pitch of variable bounce where batsmen were struck on the fingers with alarming regularity.
Moseley, who resumed on 49, batted with patient assurance in anchoring the Barbados innings after they resumed on 127 for two with an overall lead of 161. Barbados scored 209 in their first innings and then dismissed the Red Force for 175 on the second day. (PH)
