TT Red Force need nine wickets for victory on the final day against Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) in round six in the West Indies Four-Day Championships today at the Sir Frank Worrell Memorial Ground, University of the West Indies, St Augustine.

CCC ended day three on 67/1 in the second innings, needing 382 more runs to reach the mammoth 449 victory target. At the crease for CCC are Damel Evelyn (43) and Zishan Motara (0). Opener Kamil Pooran was sent back to the pavilion for 18.

Earlier in the day, CCC were dismissed for 238 in the first innings after resuming the day on 109/5. Yannick Ottley, playing against his countrymen, including his brother Kjorn, showed resistance for CCC with a knock of 56 not out off 130 deliveries. His innings included six fours. Pooran was the next best batsman with 40.

Fast bowler Anderson Phillip proved to be a handful for the CCC batsmen, snatching 5/71 in 22 overs. Phillip dismissed the pair of captain Shamarh Brooks and the dangerous Roshon Primus cheaply for 15 and 18 respectively, which broke the backbone of the CCC batting.

Off spinner Bryan Charles and medium pacer Terrance Hinds were also among the wickets. Charles took 2/30 and Hinds bagged 2/43 as Red Force earned a lead of 353 runs on first innings.

Red Force decided to give their bowlers rest, choosing not to enforce the follow on.

Aiming for quick runs, Red Force raced to 95/2 in 17 overs in their second innings before declaring and setting CCC the imposing target. Jason Mohammed and Amir Jangoo continued their form in the match, hitting 41 not out and 34 not out respectively.

In the first innings, Jangoo scored his maiden First Class century with a knock of 218 and Mohammed cracked his 13th hundred with an innings of 157. Mohammed now has the most centuries (13) for TT, passing former TT captain Daren Ganga who has 12.
