As we celebrate 54 years of Independence today, let us all be certain we know that talk is cheap!
Talking is for pretenders!
Triston Singh and Jeremy Solozano led East to a strong position at the end of day one in their BG TT Under-19 Interzone two-day match against North East at Honeymoon Park yesterday.
Bowling first, the left-arm orthodox spin of Singh destroyed the North East batting card, as he grabbed 8/36 in 14 overs. Singh was assisted by Vishnu Boys Hindu College student Vikash Mohan (2/23). Together, they bowled North East out for a dismal 120. Warren Phillip’s half century (51) and Darion Ramdanee’s 33 offered some resistance.
In response, Solozano, a Hillview College student, blasted an unbeaten 103 that carried his team to 161/1 declared. Shaquille McDavid supported Solozano, making 50 not out. In their second turn at the crease, North East started positively, closing the day on 35/0, six runs behind the East team.
