With one day to go in their match, the Lions are in command against the Windwards, having made 290-9 declared in their second innings, with nightwatchman James Harris topscoring with 73, while Gale and Hildreth made 40s. Mathurin was the main wicket-taker for the Windwards, capturing 7-72. Chasing an improbable target of over 350, the Windwards were reeling at 10-2 at stumps, having lost Browne (3) and Theophile (7).

At the halfway stage in the top-of-the-table clash, Trinidad were interestingly poised at 172-3 in reply to Jamaica's 356 all out. Darren Ganga was 75 not out, and Lendl Simmons hit a half-century, while Andrew Richardson has taken two wickets and Jerome Taylor one, so far. Wavell Hinds hit 162 not out, while Dave Bernard and Brendan Nash made half-centuries in Jamaica's total.

The CCC secured a 44-run first innings lead when they bowled Guyana out for 207, Ryan Austin and Carlos Brathwaite taking four wickets each. Rajendra Chandrika topscored with 49, while there were useful knocks from Christian (41) and Mohamed (34). BBut at stumps the CCC were reeling at 40-3, with Rommel Currency holding the fort on 21 not out, against the bowling of Permaul with two wickets and Bess one, to date.

The cellar battle is an interesting contest for first innings points, as Barbados are 245-7 replying to 277 all out by the Leewards. Jonathan carter was the leding scorer for the Bajans with 82, and Jason Haynes chipped in with 52, while Shane Dowrich is still there on 31 not out. So far, Athanaze has taken three wickets, and Walters two.

Windwards 69-8, Briggs 6-29, Rashid 2-11. Briggs seemed to have out-performed Rashid on this trip, tbh.

Good to have these spinners coming through - with these two, not to mention Panesar and Tredwell, and with Swann having who knows how many years ahead of him as a Test player, the cupboard is certainly not bare for once.

And in other matches....

Barbados registered a six-wicket win over the Leewards, after the latter collapsed in their second innings to be 82 all out. Peters topscored with 23 not out as there were three wickets for Pedro Collins, and two each for Tino Best and Ryan Hinds. The Bajans then hit 109-4, losing Kraigg Brathwaite (3), Jason Haynes (22), Brooks (15) and Hinds (24), but Jonathan Carter (36 not out) guided Barbados to victory at the end, while Justin Athanaze captured two wickets.

Pacer Andrew Richardson took three wickets, and there were two each for dibbly-dobblers Dave Bernard and Brendan Nash, as Jamaica dismissed Trinidad for 279 to secure a 77-run first innings lead. Darren Ganga topscored with 103, and there were scores of 52 from Lendl Simmons and 48 from Sherwin Ganga, but little else. At stumps on the penultimate day, Jamaica were 126-3, with Nash not out on 33 and with him is Tamar Lambert on three. The batsmen out are Simon Jackson (26), Danza Hyatt (3) and Marlon Samuels (39), while Sherwin Ganga, Shannon Gabriel and Amit Jaggernauth have each taken a wicket to date.

Chasing a victory target of 200, Guyana were 30-1 at the close with one day to go, having lost Rajendra Chandrika to spinner ryan Austin. Earlier, the CCC had collapsed to be 155 all out, Nkrumah Bonner topscoring with 62, but there was little else from the other batsmen, as spinner Veerasammy Permaul took 6-39.

Chris Woakes made 104* as the Lions recovered from 124 for five to close the first day of their final four-day game on 335 for nine.

Ben Stokes scored 63, James Taylor 41 and James Hildreth 40.

So far, there has been two wickets each for slinging pacer Sheldon Cotterell and dibbly-dobbler Danza Hyatt, while Jason Dawes, Tamar Lambert, Andre Dwyer and Bevon Brown have all taken one wicket each.

The LIons did well to recover, thru good scores from, surprisingly, Woakes....

These days, Sabina has been offering good assistance to the bowlers, so this should be a decent target in their battle for first innings points.

In the old days didn't Sabina have a fearsome reputation for being a very fast pitch? Of course it helped that the attacks available were notorious but in Malcolm Marshall's autobiography, "Marshall arts" he always said that in tests he liked Sabina almost more than Kensington Oval.

yes, Chin, in the good old days, it was a pace bowler's paradise, but then came the days when all the Caribbean pitches became slow pitches, where it favoured batsmen and spinners, and pace bowlers were treated badly on all pitches, including Sabina Park....

Lately, though, it looks like Sabina Park is becoming a little more friendly to pace, and the same with Kensington Oval.

ENGvJA: Finally JA finish off ENG innings, Cottrell found the edge of Woakes, 115, leaving Samuels 2 take an easy catch at 2nd slip.ENG 358. #ENGvJA: 358 all out (Woakes 115, Stokes 63, Taylor 41, Hildreth 40; Cottrell 3-80, Hyatt 2-46).

TTvGY: LUNCH: TT 96/2 after 28 overs. Simmons 45* J. Mohammed 13*. TTvGY: TT 96/2. GY Bowling Bess 6-1-14-1, Permaul 8-2-20-1.

BDvCCC: At lunch, Barbados after electing to bat were in dire straits at 69/6 from 27 overs. Holder 0*, Dowrich 0*. #BDvCCC: Wicket- taker so far: Kantasingh 10-5-17-4, Austin 2-0-2-1.

Sabina Park is the most bowler friendly of the Test venues in the Caribbean I'd have thought. I remember about 5 years ago, India v West Indies in a Test there finished inside 3 days.

Replying to 358 all out by the Lions, Jamaica reached 259-4 at the halfway stage, with Simon Jackson making 60, Danza Hyatt 59, and Marlon samuels 58. Tamar Lambert was out for just eight, but Brendan Nash was still there on 56, and with him is Wavell HInds on five. Danny Briggs has taken two wickets so far, and there's one each for Woakes and Buck. Left-arm slingy pacer Sheldon Cotterell took 3-80 for Jamaica.

At the end of the Day One in the other three matches, there were contrasting positions. Twenty-two wickets fell in Barbados, where the Bajans were dismissed for just 90, Jason Haynes topscoring with 49 against spinner Kavesh Kantasingh, who took 7-22. In reply, the CCC only did marginally better, making 113 all out, Nkrumah Bonner and Carlos Brathwaite making 20s, against Ryan Hinds and Jason Holder, who took four and three wickets each. At stumps, Barbados were 17-2, having lost Haynes for a duck and Brooks for two. Kraigg Brathwaite was the not out batsman.

Trinidad were in a strong position against Guyana, having reached 291-4 at the close, thanks to an unbeaten 134 from Lendl Simmons. Denesh Ramdin was with him on 32 not out, while Jason Mohammed made 67.

In their rain-affected match, the Leewards were reduced to 62-5 by the Windwards. Kenroy Peters has taken 2-12 so far, while Mervin Matthew, Liam Sebastien and Gary Mathurin have taken one wicket each. Jason Peters and Jacques Taylor are the not out batsmen.

What's the format of this competition by the way? Is it a simple league format where the winner takes all or do the top 4 go into semi finals? Also, does anyone know why Steven Finn didn't join up with the Lions squad?

Top four go into the semi-finals....

But England Lions need to go home for the start of the county season, so they won't be playing in the semis.

ENGvJA: OUT, Nash departs, caught off the bowling of Briggs for 65. JA 309/5. ENGvJA: OUT, Hinds goes under controversial circumstances, caught @ di wicket, off Briggs. Hinds showing he did not play the ball. JA 310/6.

TTvGY: LUNCH! TT 418/5 Simmons 190* I. Khan 35*.

BDvCCC: Lunch- Barbados 3/103 Carter 51*, Brathwaite 29*. Barbados lead by 80 runs with seven second innings wkts left. BDvCCC: Hinds the only batsman out in the morning session as Barbados moved from an overnight 2/17 to 103/3. B'dos 109 & 3/103. CCC 113.

Brendan Nash topscored with 65 and there were 40s from Wavell Hinds and Chadwick Walton, as Jamaica made 376 all out to take an 18-run first innings lead over the England Lions with one day to go in their four-day match at Sabina Park. Danny Briggs took 5-121, while there were three wickets for Buck, and one each for Woakes and Harris. Pacer Jason Dawes then took the wicket of Lyth for just one, but Jimmy Adams hit 38 and Gale 57, before they both fell to spinner Bevon Brown, taking the Lions to 149-3 at stumps. The not out batsmen are James Hildreth (16) and James Taylor (10).

At the halfway stages of the other three matches, three teams looked poised to take command. Guyana were reeling at 137-5 in reply to Trinidad's 434-5 declared. Lendl Simmons hit 202 not out, and there were 60s from Denesh Ramdin and Jason Mohammed, while Jacobs was Guyana's best bowler with two wickets. In reply, only Rajendra Chandrika with 77 not out offered any resistance, as the remaining Guyanese batsmen, including the out-of-form Narsing Deonarine, fell cheaply to Amit Jaggernauth and Imran Khan, with three and two wickets respectively.

In a low-scoring game in Barbados, Jonathan Carter was the only batsmen to offer any resistance for the Bajans, making 99 in a total of 195 against the bowling of Kavesh Kantasingh 4-50, and two wickets each for Kevin McClean, Ryan Austin and Carlos Brathwaite. Set 173 to win, the CCC were 36-1 at the close, having lost Rommel Currency to Fidel Edwards for just one. The not out batsmen are Phillips (15) and Thomas (12).

The Windwards took command of their match against the Leewards, reaching 285-6 after two days, for a 213-run lead on first innings. Lesporis topscored with 86 and Fletcher made 70, while the not out batsmen are Kevin James (26) and Gary Mathurin (one) against the bowling of Tonge and Peters with two wickets each.

I think it's been excellent having the Lions playing in a proper competition and not just a round of scratch friendlies. Shame they can't quite stay to see it through.
