T&T and Barbados U-17s press for wins

Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago were both pressing for outright wins after the first day of the final round of the Rising Stars Under-17 Two-Day Championship, yesterday.

Trailing leaders Barbados by 0.6 points heading into the last round, hosts T&T will enter the final day today in their match against the Windard Islands with a 38-run lead already on first innings. This was after the Windwards, sent in to bat first, were dismissed for 110. In reply, T&T reached 148 for four by the close.

Jordon Mohammed was the destroyer of the Windwards first innings at the National Cricket Centre in Couva, taking five wickets for 40 runs. He was supported by the miserly Ishmael Ali who took three for 11 in 10.4 overs.

In reply, openers Riyaad Mohammed (51, five fours), and Luke Ali (44, four fours) laid a solid platform for their team with a partnership of 108, spanning nearly 2 1/4 hours. It was T&T’s best partnership for any wicket for the tournament, and answered coach Rayad Emirt’s call for more occupation of the crease by his batters.

Over in Preysal, at Inshan Ali Park, Barbados will have a lead of 85 going into today’s play against Guyana.

Batting first, the Barbadians were restricted to 172, with Reviera Cottle top-scoring with 54 off just 57 balls. But the Guyanese youths fared much worse, succumbing for 90 in their first innings, mainly to Kyron King, who took five for 27.

With a lead on first innings of 82, Barbados closed on three without loss in their second innings. And at Gilbert Park, Jamaica, having been dismissed for 93 in their first innings against the Leeward Islands, hit back to bowl their opponents out for 86. Jamaica were 18 without loss at the end, leading by 25 runs.
