Fluent Khan hits 63 in trials
All-rounder Imran Khan followed up his seven-wicket haul in the last trial match with a top score of 63 as his team, the Rayad Emrit XI, reached 281 for nine against the Denesh Ramdin XI at the end of the first day of the national cricket trial at the National Cricket Centre (NCC) in Couva, yesterday.
Khan was the top scorer in the innings, propping up the middle order with his 129-ball knock which included eight fours. At the top of the order, Justin Guillen and Evin Lewis posted an impressive opening stand of 80 runs. Guillen, who has belted three centuries in the trials to date, fell for 36 off 52 balls with five fours, while Lewis cracked 42 off 60 balls with six fours and a six.
Skipper Emrit also got among the runs and scored a quickfire 29 with two fours and two sixes. And towards the end of the day, Khary Pierre showed his pedigree with the bat, stroking 48 off 85 balls with six fours. He and Sanjeev Gooljar, who remained 26 not out, added 65 runs for the ninth wicket.
Queen’s Park all-rounder Akiel Hosein continued his good form with the ball and took 4/109 off 30 marathon overs, while fellow Parkite Amit Jaggernauth snared 2/79 off 34 overs. The trials continue today from 10 am.
