Collymore bowls Barbados into commanding position over host Jamaica

West Indies fast bowler Corey Collymore bowled leaders Barbados into a commanding position over Jamaica on Sunday in their top-of-the-table Carib Beer Series match at Chedwin Park.
Collymore, who was not considered for the West Indies tour of India, bowled accurately to end with 6 for 30 off 19 overs as Jamaica elected to bat after winning the toss.
Danza Hyatt was the only man to be dismissed before lunch, bowled by Collymore for 15 at 34-1.
Despite a 53-run second wicket partnership between captain Wavell Hinds, who joined Brenton Parchment and took Jamaica to lunch at 58-1, the home team lost everything in the post-lunch session. Barbados leads the competition by 30 points.
Hinds top-scored with 39, hitting six fours and a six off 111 deliveries while Parchment contributed 35, which included four boundaries.
Toward the end of the day's competition, Andrew Richards hit three fours in making 12 and Nikita Miller hit two fours in getting 10 against Pedro Collins 2-29 and Tino Best 2-27.
At stumps on the opening day's play, Barbados closed on 120 for three.
Dale Richards, who took 24 runs out of Jermaine Lawson's fifth over, will resume Monday on 74.
