TAROUBA, Trinidad (CMC) — Joshua DaSilva struck a maiden hundred in only his third List A appearance as West Indies Emerging Players produced a polished all-round performance to stun Windward Islands Volcanoes by 107 runs in the Regional Super50 Cup here Monday.

The 21-year-old right-hander gathered an unbeaten 103 off 124 deliveries as Emerging Players, opting to bat first at Brian Lara Stadium, piled up 261 for three off their 50 overs.

Left-hander Gidron Pope hit exactly 50, Roland Cato carved out a pulsating unbeaten 49 off just 29 balls, while Justin Greaves chipped in with a valuable 46.

Fast bowler Keon Harding then snatched four for 45 and new-ball partner Kevin Sinclair, three for 19, to wreck the Volcanoes' innings and send it tumbling to 154 all out off 38 overs.

Shane Shillingford, batting at number nine, resisted with an unbeaten 41 while number eight Kerron Cottoy got 33, but Kavem Hodge with 28 was the only specialist batsman to pass 10.

The victory, their second in three matches, put Emerging Players in a three-way tie on eight points in Group B, but they lie third behind hosts Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and Guyana Jaguars on net run rate.

The Volcanoes are rock bottom without a win in two outings, following their opening defeat to the Red Force.
