An unbeaten 201 by opener Devon Smith - it's his highest first-class score - put Windward Islands in a commanding position against Guyana in Grenada, as they finished the day on 377 for 7, gaining a massive lead of 205. After bowling out Guyana for 172 on the first day, the Windward batsmen helped strengthen their team's dominance by staying at the crease long enough to provide enough support to Smith who anchored the innings.

Guyana picked up an early wicket, that of Miles Bascombe for 16, but failed through the day to dismantle Smith, who was involved in three successive half-century stands - 50 for the third wicket with Liam Sebastien, 95 with Darren Sammy and 86 with captain Rawl Lewis - to put the game out of Guyana's reach. His fourth fifty-plus stand, an unbeaten 67 for the eighth wicket, came with Shane Shillingford as Windwards strengthened their advantage. Legspinner Davendra Bishoo was Guyana's only notable performer, taking 3 for 89.

Left-arm spinner Ryan Hinds took four wickets to help Barbados restrict Trinidad and Tobago to 264 in Weymouth, but a below-par batting display by his team's batsmen saw the two sides end the day on even terms. Barbados opener Dale Richards scored an unbeaten 60 and will be the key to his team's progress tomorrow, but he was deprived of support from his fellow batsmen as T&T managed to keep them to 108 for 4.
