Premiership leader Comets to get another 24 points
Premiership leaders Alescon Comets will be inactive this weekend but will gain 24 points from its scheduled clash against W Connection Wanderers. The Central team holds a one-point lead at the top of the standings on 50, followed by Queen’s Park on 49. Today, Comets will have no cricket because Wanderers have not been showing up for games because of protest action. The T&T Cricket Board (TTCB) has decided to award any team who was due to play them 24 points.
Ironically, Wanderers decided not to play any of its matches in protest at a ruling involving Comets last season. Many of its players have since gone to other clubs in search of work and hence the premiership has now been effectively reduced to 11 instead of 12 teams. In other matches, Queen’s Park, which has won both its matches to date, will be hoping to continue that form when it plays PowerGen at Syne Village in Penal. PowerGen won its first game easily against F&E Diamond United but lost its second to Esmeralda on first innings.
The Parkites will be making the two-hour journey without many of its top stars who are on West Indies and national duties, respectively. However, its bench came through against Aranguez in the last game and it will be hoping for some of the same starting today. PowerGen, with a number of experienced players in their ranks, will be looking to secure a win at home and get its campaign back on track after a stutter last week. Cross-town rivals Clarke Road will also be in action as it hosts Esmeralda at the Wilson Road Recreation ground. Baldath Mahabir’s boys have been playing good cricket this season with two first innings victories to date but they would be looking to push for that outright win against Esmeralda which is starting to hit its straps.
In other matches, F&E Diamond United SC plays Merry Boys Sports Club at Kennedy Park, Caldrac Club plays Bamboo at California, and Moosai’s battles Aranguez at Honeymoon Park. All matches start at 10 am.
