Yannick Ottley hit his second first class half-century to carefully guide Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to their first win of the WICB Professional Cricket League here Monday
Basseterre, St Kitts, CMC — The 23-year-old right-hander stroked a responsible, unbeaten 76 as Red Force, set 203 for victory at Warner Park, easily reached their target by six wickets and inflicts a second straight defeat on the luckless Leeward Islands.
Following on from the poor start to the competition at home in the first round, Red Force jumped to second spot in the standings with 20 points.
The Leewards, meanwhile, as has been the case in recent seasons, are languishing fifth on six points in the six-team standings.
