T&T goes under to Guyana

Sunday, July 15, 2018

T&T lost its third-round clash in the Cricket West Indies Regional Under-17 championship by three wickets in a low-scoring match out at Gilbert Park in California yesterday.

T&T was bundled out in the rain-affected encounter for just 65 runs and despite a good fight back by its bowlers, Guyana still got home at 66 for seven to claim full points. T&T batting first found the going very tough and there was a steady stream of batsmen to and from the pavilion. Only three batsmen got into double figures. Opener Tariq Mohammed scored 14 runs, all-rounder Rivaldo Ramlogan (14), wicketkeeper Leonardo Julien (13).

Dwain Dick and Sheldon Charles were Guyana's best bowlers with three each and Nigel Deodat took two. Guyana expected to get to the winning target without challenge but in the end, it was very tough as the host put up a brave fight with the ball. The visitors got an opening stand of 24 which set the tone for the visitor's response.

However, Nicholas and Samir Ali got into the act and Guyana was reeling at 50 for seven. At this point, T&T had fancied its chances but it was not to be as Charles with nine not out and Deodat showed resistance with an unbroken stand of 16 runs for no further loss and that partnership helped Guyana safely home for the win.

The only Guyanese player to get into double figures was opener Sachin Singh who scored 21 runs. Nicholas ended with three for 30 and Samir three for 15.


At Brian Lara Academy: Jamaica 204/9 (50) (Razak Williams 83, Lennox Simpson 23, Jaden Leacock 2/40, Rivaldo Clarke Ramon 2/45, Simmonds 2/31) vs Barbados 204/4 (44.2) (Rashawn Worrell 69, Rivaldo Clarke 55no, Antonio Morris 37, Razak Williams 2/40) – Barbados won by four wickets.
