U19 double in sight as Guyana crushes T&T by eight wickets

Guyana defeated Trinidad and Tobago by eight wickets in their Regional Under-19 One-Day Championships fixture in St Kitts/Nevis yesterday to storm to a fifth consecutive win in this year’s edition of the tournament and move one step closer to the coveted double.

The South Americans had won the toss and invited their Twin-Island Republic counterparts to take the first strike, bundling them out for a paltry 110 in the 36th over.

Bhaskar Yadram (3-19), Ashmed Nedd (2-23) and Richie Loonaught (2-27), were the men who did the bulk of the damage while Kirstan Kallicharan, who made 48, was the only batsman to make a significant score.

The eight-wicket pounding was then completed with Raymond Perez stroking an unbeaten 47 which included five fours and a maximum to push his aggregate to 271 runs with a game to come.

He shared in a 78-run, opening stand with Joshua Persaud, who made 44, inclusive of the same amount of boundaries and two sixes.

Guyana are now one win away from capturing the Regional Under-19 double after they won the three-day competition earlier in the month.
