Central eases to BG TT U-17 crown
Bryan Boodram made a patient unbeaten 40 to guide Central to a six-wicket win over the South East Zone in the final of the BG TT Under-17 InterZone 50-over cricket tournament at the National Cricket Centre, Couva, yesterday.
After dismissing South East for a meagre 111, Central needed just 2.24 runs per over to get to their victory target.
The left-handed Boodram anchored the innings, facing 91 balls. His knock included 23 singles, one six and no fours. He shared in an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership with Emilio Gopaul who pitched in with 22, while J. Williams was the pick of the bowlers for South East, grabbing 2/19.
Earlier, Boodram’s left-arm orthodox spin undermined South East who were bundled out in 32 overs. Boodram, who took 4/16, was well supported by his Vishnu Boys Hindu College teammate Jarlarnie Seales (4/32).
Brandon Jaggernauth continued his good form, top-scoring with 35. Jaggernauth made an unbeaten 77 for South East in a victory last week against South West.
M Dindial also contributed 26, but it was not enough as Central were crowned champions.
AT COUVA: South East 111 (32 overs) (Brandon Jaggernauth 35, M. Dindial 26, Bryan Boodram 4/16, Jarlarnie Seales 4/32, Varindra Jagroop 1/23) vs Central 114/4 (34 overs) (Boodram 40 n.o., Jagroop 23 n.o., Emilio Gopaul 22, J. Williams 2/19, Gabriel Maharaj 1/23). Central won by 6 wickets.
