U-17 cricket…Windwards, Jamaica score big wins

All-round performances from Jamaica Captain Michael Frew and Vice-captain Javelle Glenn overpowered Trinidad and Tobago yesterday on the second day of action in the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Under-17 Limited Over contest in Tobago at the Bon Accord Ground.

Frew and Glenn together added 77 runs to the fourth wicket partnership after they had earlier taken five wickets between them to help bowl out the Trinidadians for 124 in 26.1 overs. With Jamaica in a worrying position at 48-3, the pair joined forces and carried their bat until their team claimed victory at 125-3.

It took the two Jamaican batsmen 13.3 overs, four sixes and a solitary four to ensure their team achieved its target. Frew and Glenn were supported by opening batsmen Kashawn Beale (10) and Jordan Hill (19) who set the platform for their team with an opening partnership worth 36 runs. Bowling for T&T Kirstan Kallicharan claimed two wickets as he finished the most effective bowler during the visitors’ innings.

Earlier after the Trinidadians won the toss and elected to bat, they got off to a poor start as Jamaican pacer Devaraine Rowe struck twice. He removed Jordan Warner (2) and Dejourn Charles (6) as the host slipped to 25-2 in 9.2 overs. T&T innings never recovered as only lower order batsman Brandon Mahoney with 25 not-out, Bryan Boodram (22) and Keagan Simmons (20) were noticeable scorers during their team’s innings.

At Shaw Park, the Windward Islands made it two wins in as many matches after defeating the Leeward Islands by 36 runs. Windward’s Captain Darel Cyrus and opening batsman Anil Mathew were very productive in constructing their team’s win. Cyrus claimed 4-20 after Mathew had made 55 to set a winning target of 162 all-out in 34.3 overs for his team.

Mathew’s innings was supported by fellow opener Christian Charlery (36) with whom he added 88 for the first wicket and Emmanuel Stewart who made 35. Bowling for the Leewards, Zubin Deyal, Karima Gore and Jaidel Richardson all claimed two wickets each.

In reply, the Leewards made 126 all-out in 33.4 overs, with Captain Ross Powell and Dmitri Adams leading the way with 29 and 25 respectively. Cyrus’s destructive bowling spell for the Windwards was assisted by Ryan John (3-12) and Joshua Mann (2-14) who also bowled well.

The game involving Guyana and Barbados that was scheduled for play at Louis D’or Ground was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain.
