-Kemo Paul’s knock steers Guyana to victory

Kemo Paul scored his third half century in as many matches as Guyana claimed victory over Trinidad.

Kemo Paul steered Guyana to a third successive victory as action in the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Under-19 Limited Overs Tournament continued yesterday at the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) ground, Bourda.

Paul struck his third consecutive half-century of the tournament to give the host a convincing victory by five wickets over Trinidad and Tobago. His innings of 74 from 67 deliveries got Guyana to its target of 164 safely. Paul, who scored 86 and 51 in the first two rounds, scored his runs at a strike rate of 110.4 before getting out one run short of his team’s victory. The youngster from the Cinderella County reached his fifty with his third six that was hit powerfully over long-off. His innings contained three fours and six sixes.

He shared in a fourth wicket partnership worth 49 runs with Ashkay Homraj (20) before the latter was removed by Brian Christmas after being caught at point by Camilio Carimbocas.

Before Paul’s magnificent innings, Guyana in its first run chase of the competition, raced to 37 in 4.4 overs before losing its first wicket, Shimron Hetmyer, for 12. Hetmyer’s opening partner Tagenarine Chanderpaul inspired the first half of Guyana’s run chase. He belted two fours and three sixes in his aggressive innings of 41 that lasted 32 balls.

Local skipper Brian Sattaur’s poor run in this year’s competition continued when he was removed by Akil Seetal for seven after cutting a full toss to the point fielder, immediately after hitting the same bowler for six.

The hosts achieved victory in 28.2 overs with Renaldo Ali-Mohamed and Sharaz Ramcharan unbeaten on five and nought respectively. Justin Joseph and Seetal were the chief wicket takers for Trinidad with two wickets each.

After being sent in to bat in a game reduced to 32 overs per innings, Trinidad and Tobago reached 163-9 when its allotted overs expired. The petite player, Carimbocas, top scored with 66 for the visitors. The right-handed batsman, who batted at number four played responsibly, striking three fours and two sixes along the way. He received support from Amir Jangoo and Brian Christmas who made 34 and 22 respectively.

Ramcharran (3-27 from 7 overs) and Damion Waldron (2-25 from 3 overs) spearheaded Guyana’s bowling attack. Guyana draws a bye for the next round which will be played on Saturday but will resume its fourth round against Jamaica on Sunday at the same venue.

Camilio Carimbocas of T&T gathered runs in his impressive knock of 66.
