Khalawan’s century not enough for Naps
Naparima Boys batsman Clevon Khalawan’s unbeaten century was not enough to give South West victory over South East in the final preliminary round of the BG TT Under-17 InterZone 50-over tournament, yesterday.
In the shortened 38-over match, due to a late start, South East compiled a massive 306/7 with Akil Mohammed (80) and S Rambarran (84) being the top scorers. V Ramadar was the best bowler for South West, picking up 4/35.
Chasing a huge total of 307, Khalawan was a one-man show stroking 138 not out, as his team could only muster 233/5. Mohammed was also among the wickets, taking 2/37. At Brian Lara Recreation Ground, Hillview College all-rounder Afdal Khan continued his heroics, snatching 4/33 to lead East to a 45-run win over North. Khan scored 93 in the last round of the PowerGen Secondary Schools Cricket League that led Hillview to the league title. Batting first, East made a dismal 160/9 in 50 overs. Shakeem Prince made 28, while Nickolai Niron contributed an unbeaten 20. Calvi Alva’s 4/15 restricted the East batsmen. Khan’s left-arm bowling ensured his team’s total was enough, as North’s batting never got going.
In other matches, Virendra Jagroop and Emilio Gopaul gave Central a win against South and Dejourn Charles’ 60 led Tobago to victory over North East.
