Ali puts T&T U-19 on top
Left-arm orthodox spinner Jovan Ali grabbed four wickets for the national under-19 team yesterday to give his team the advantage against the Leeward Islands at the end of the opening day of their round four clash in the West Indies Cricket Board Regional U-19 tournament in St Kitts.
After a delayed start due to rain, the Leeward Islands were in a fairly comfortable position at the lunch interval, motoring along at 52/2 after 14 overs. However, Ali lead the fight back, taking 4/20 in 17 overs as the Leeward Islands were bundled out for 108. Ali was supported by another spin bowler Bryan Charles, who took 3/16.
Shawn Tuitt stood tall for the Leeward Islands, scoring a valiant 43. At stumps, T&T was cruising on 49/0 with both Jeremy Solozano and Andy Gobin, unbeaten on 17.
In the Jamaica/Guyana clash, a 110-run tenth wicket partnership between Marquino Mindley and Malcolm Whyte led the fight back for leaders Jamaica, as they were eventually dismissed for a respectable 218 against Guyana at Conaree. Guyana started positively in their first innings, closing on 60/1.
In another encounter, the Windward Islands ended day one yesterday on 191/7 against Barbados at EGSC Molineaux.
