Leewards under the gun against CCC

The Leeward Islands were struggling in reply to the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) score of 240 all out in their Nagico Regional Super50 clash last night at the Queen’s Park Oval. After a battling half century from Anthony Alleyne had taken the students to 240 all out with one ball in their innings remaining, the Leewards found themselves in all sorts of trouble at 10 for three after eight overs. All three batsmen who fell did not trouble the scorers.

 

Earlier, the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) got a solid opening platform from Chadwick Walton and Anthony Alleyne and this paved the way for their competitive score. With the Islanders hoping for early wickets, Walton took the attack to them and threw the bowlers off line and length. Alleyne was a bit more circumspect but all the while turning the strike over. The two posted 57 runs before Walton was unfortunately run out for 30. Kyle Corbin was next in and together with Alleyne they continued to gather runs with ease. They pushed the score along to 102 when Corbin fell via the leg before route for 29.

 

Skipper Stephen Jacobs came and saw Alleyne pass the half century mark. However, Alleyne left soon after and it took some robust hitting by Shaquaya Thomas towards the end to push the score to 240. He scored 35 off 28 balls with three sixes. Leg-spinner Anthony Martin was the best of the Leewards bowlers with 3/33.
