West Indies left-handed batsman Wavell Hinds struck an unbeaten 91 to push Kensington to 217 for five against St Mary at close of play in the Jamaica Cricket Association Senior Cup final at Chedwin Park yesterday.

After losing the toss and being asked to bat first, the east Kingston-based team were stunned before the lunch break, losing four wickets with a mere 54 runs on the board.

This brought together the pair of Hinds and Ryan Francis, who proceeded to nullify the inspired St Mary attack with a blend of compact defence and attacking strokeplay.

Despite a heavy downpour of rain, which interrupted play in the afternoon, both batsmen kept their concentration to put on a fifth-wicket stand of 122 before Francis was dismissed for 45.

Hinds, who has so far belted six fours and one six, and Rasheed Outar, eight not out, will look to propel Kensington to a formidable total when play resumes today 10:00 am. The two have already added 41 for the sixth wicket.

Claudius Thompson took two wickets for 37 runs off 14 overs, while Jermaine Chisholm took two for 44 off 12 for St Mary.
