T&T bowlers put Leewards in a spin
The spin trio of Imran Khan, Amit Jaggernauth and Yannick Cariah gave T&T first innings points over the Leeward Islands yesterday on the second day of their regional four-day clash at Warner Park in St Kitts.
The combination proved too tricky for the home team, grabbing all ten wickets, as the visitors took a lead of 85 runs on first innings, which they extended to 125 by the close.
Replying to T&T’s 279, the home team were spun out for 194 and T&T reached 40 for the loss of Justin Guillen’s (0) wicket, going into the third day today.
Guillen was caught at backward point, but Adrian Barath, who sounded a return to form with 58 in the first innings, weathered the storm to end the day on 25 not out and with him was Evin Lewis who was unbeaten on 14.
T&T resumed on the overnight position of 254 for eight and their innings ended for the addition of just 25 runs.
Wicketkeeper Stephen Katwaroo 54 not out overnight was able to add just one run to his total before he was run out. Ravi Rampaul stayed to the end and was the last man dismissed for 27.
Quinton Boatswain was the Leewards’ best bowler, grabbing 4-75, and Gavin Tonge 2-52.
The Leewards then took to the crease and had a promising start in the blistering sun before T&T captain Rayad Emrit introduced his spinning trio and they undermined the Islanders’ batting with their guile.
Khan got generous turn with his leg-spinners and troubled the Leewards top-order. Off-spinner Jaggernauth was very tight at the other end and gave nothing away. With this pressure building the Leewards batsmen started to play injudicious shots which resulted in their downfall.
They quickly slipped to 95 for five and was only able to post their eventual 194 thanks to a solid 68 by skipper Sylvester Joseph. Apart from him the only other men to hang around were Montcin Hodge 24 and Austin Richards Jr 28.
Khan ended with 4/62, while Jaggernauth picked up 3/39 and the equally impressive Yannic Cariah grabbed 3/35.
With the pitch favouring the slow bowlers more and more as the match progresses, T&T will be looking to set the home team a target of around 300 and then let their spinners loose.
Play resumes at 10 am.
