A Tobago man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in jail for motor vehicle manslaughter.
High Court judge David Harris, presiding in the Tobago Supreme Court, handed down the sentence.
Varun Partap and Nicolai Beharrysingh starred for El Dorado North Hindu in their massive 105-run win over Tunapuna Hindu School in the Inter-Primary Block-Up Windball 15-over cricket competition on June 5 at Constantine Park, Macoya.
El Dorado won the toss and elected to bat in this reduced 12-over match due to inclement weather. Partap struck five fours and eight sixes in his knock of 71 to lead the team to 141/7 off their 12 overs.
The opening pair of Avash Persad and Jerome Jaggernauth got El Do off to a great start, getting to 39 after four overs. Persad made 19, while Jaggernauth pitched in with 14. Brentley Barker was the best bowler for Tunapuna, taking 2/21.
In response, Tunapuna were skittled out for only 36. Nicolai Beharrysingh was in fine form, snatching a hat-trick in his first over. Beharrysingh ended the match with figures of 4/7, while Jaggernauth was also among the wickets, taking 3/4.
In another boys match on June 5, Dinsley-Trincity Government Primary school got past St Mary’s Home by ten wickets behind Johnathon Watson’s all-round performance.
