Leeward Islands Hurricanes were 339 for nine in their second innings against Barbados Pride at lunch on the rain-spoiled final day of their first-round game in West Indian Championship on Saturday at Kensington ovalwith a 187 lead.
At the break, Jermaine Louis was not up to 42 and Nino Henry was not down to seven after the Hurricanes resumed from their 294 total for seven overnight.
Between two rainy spells, rookie left-arm Ramon Simmonds took every two wickets that fell before lunch to lead the Pride bowler, 4-57 from 19 overs.
Only one over was possible before rain interrupted play for 35 minutes and forced a lunch postponement, and players returned for a period of play that lasted almost an hour and a half before another shower forced them again.
Before lunch, Simmonds bowled Hurricanes captain Jahmar Hamilton for 47, played on a rising ball, and followed with the scalp of Colin Archibald Jr., who was caught on the first slip for a three-ball duck in the same over.
Pride was frustrated another 40 minutes before the second shower when lame last man Nino Henry got into the crease, sharing an uninterrupted streak of 27.
Play resumes at 12:50 p.m. with the end of the game being pushed back to 5:40 p.m
