Bravo, Deonarine among runs in National League

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC – West Indies batsman Darren Bravo turned his back on some patchy form with a half-century for Queen’s Park Oval, on the opening day of the seventh round of matches in the National League on Saturday.

The left-hander carved out a fine top score of 81 as the hosts were dismissed for 228 in their first innings against Tableland.

West Indies fast bowler Shannon Gabriel then took two for 19 as Tableland were bundled out for 96. Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein took three for 15.

Guyana and West Indies left-hander Narsingh Deonarine was also among the runs, scoring 70 to help Preysal to 207 all out in their first innings against Bamboo.

In reply, Bamboo were bowled out for 178, with Guyanese batsman Krishna Arjune top scoring with 39, and Deonarine taking two for 15 with his off-breaks.

Preysal were nine for one in their second innings.

In Diego Martin, Barbados fast bowler Javon Searles struck an unbeaten half-century before Trinidad and Tobago left-arm spinner Ricky Jaipaul grabbed a seven-wicket haul, to keep Merry Boys afloat against Esmeralda.

Merry Boys were dismissed cheaply for 151 in their first innings, with Searles striking a top score of 57.

Jaipaul, who made his first class debut this season, then destroyed Esmeralda’s innings with seven for 44, to give Merry Boys a two-run lead on first innings.

Guyana opener Trevon Griffith top scored with 49.

At the close, Merry Boys were one without loss in their second innings.
