Posted by at 11 November, at 02 : 29 AM Print

Volcanoes faced just four balls in their second innings before bad light stopped play, after they were asked to follow on 236 runs behind on first innings.

Former Windies Under-19 batsman Kavem Hodge hit the top score of 46 for the Volcanoes in their first innings, Tarryck Gabriel made 38 and their captain Tyrone Theophile got 30, but the visitors lost their last six wickets for 12 in the space of 64 deliveries and were bowled out in just under two sessions.

Veteran leg-spinner Imran Khan grabbed 3-46 from 15 overs and three other bowlers collected two wickets apiece.

Earlier, emerging fast bowler Sherman Lewis had led a Volcanoes fight back in the morning period during which there was a 35-minutes stoppage for rain.

Lewis dismissed first-day century-makers Denesh Ramdin and Jason Mohammed, as well as Tion Webster lbw in successive overs, ending with a career-best 5-64 from 20 overs. Former Windies Under-19 fast bowler Ray Jordan supported with 3-68 from 17 overs.

Ramdin, the former Windies captain, added just 12 before he was dismissed for the top score of 116 and Windies One-day International batsman Mohammed got another 13 before he fell for 113, but no other batsman on the day reached 20.

Ramdin and Mohammed added 213 for the fourth wicket, but their dismissals triggered a slide that saw the home team dismissed about five minutes past the scheduled lunch interval, as they lost their last six wickets for 40 in 68 balls.
