KINGSTOWN, August 20, 2015 – Devon Smith smashed a century to give Grenada a 278-run lead at the end of the first day of their two-day match against St Vincent and the Grenadines in the Windward Islands Cricket Tournament here at Arnos Vale.

Led by a century from captain and opening batsman Smith and a half century from Emmanuel Stewart, Grenada made 292 all out and then restricted their opposition for 14 for one at the end of play on Thursday.

Smith made 147 and 15 year-old Emmanuel Stewart, in his debut with the national senior team, added 58.

Dennis Smith (33), Ryan John (23) and Heron Campbell (20) also made useful scores for Grenada after being sent in to bat.

Alston Bobb with figures of four for 80 and Keron Cottoy three for 71 were the successful bowlers for St Vincent and the Grenadines.

The home team suffered a setback when they lost Gidron Pope after he was caught by Denis George off the bowling of Nelon Pascal for six runs and leaving Miles Bascombe not out on seven and Sunil Ambris yet to score.

The match continues on Friday with St Vincent and the Grenadines resuming on 14 for one and trailing by 278 runs.


Grenada 292 all out 99.3 overs (Devon Smith 147, Emmanuel Stewart 58, Denis Smith 33; Alston Bubb 4-80, Keron Cottoy 3-71)

St Vincent & Grenadines 14-1 2.3 overs (Miles Bascombe 7 not out; Nelon Pascal 1-8)

Meantime, Grenada is without vice captain Andre Fletcher for this match, who was granted leave by the Grenada Cricket Association (GCA) to attend Friday’s funeral of his late uncle and former president of the GCA, Gabriel Henry.

Henry died a few weeks ago following a vehicular accident in Cuba.

Fletcher’s absence meant that Stewart at age 15 years and 361 days became the second youngest player to represent the Grenada Senior Cricket Team in a Windward Islands Tournament. Keone George is the youngest at 15 years 269 days.
