When they smashed the Windward Islands Volcanoes by 173 runs, a devastating spell from Akeem Jordan spurred Barbados Pride to their first West Indies Super50 Cup victory.

From his allotted 10 overs, Jordan grabbed five for 26 to make him a shoo-in for the Player-of-the-Match award and lead the Pride's good defence of a goal of 287 in their fourth game of the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground tournament.

To achieve some hope of reaching the semi-finals and a shot at playing for the championship, Pride needed to win this match, and they delivered on all fronts.

Justin Greaves scored the top score of 76, and Shamarh Brooks scored 61, paving the way for a Pride total of 286 for eight after they were put into bat from their allocation of 50 overs.

Jordan followed up with a disciplined spell to be the pick of the Pride's bowlers, fellow pacer Chemar Holder helped with two from 7.4 overs for 27 and left-arm spinner Joshua Bishop snared two to complete the demolition for 33 from 10 overs.

Pride now has four points, rising to fourth in the rankings ahead of home team Leeward Islands Hurricanes at a + 0.579 higher net run rate.

However, Pride still has to defeat Jamaica Scorpions in Saturday's fifth and final preliminary match at the CCG to reach the semis.
