Pride looking to blow over Hurricanes

Tarouba – Barbados Pride and Leeward Islands Hurricanes will lock horns in the second semi-final of the Super50 Cup today, with both hoping to turn the page on their disappointing recent form in the knockout stages of the regional premier 50-over tournament.

The Shai Hope-led Pride finished third in the standings on 37 points following the preliminary round while Hurricanes led the standings for a while before finishing second on 44 points.

When both teams met during the group stage, Hurricanes came away with a four-wicket victory in a low-scoring contest, but Hope said the results which had gone before were now insignificant.

“We’ve had our ups and downs,” the West Indies one-day captain said ahead of the game at the Brian Lara Stadium.

“We understand that it’s a tournament and it’s who wins the last game wins the tournament, so we have to put the losses aside and make sure we learn as quickly as we can from those particular losses.” (CMC)
