Defending National Sunday 50-over League champions Queen’s Park will face Powergen in a semifinal day/night clash today from 2.30 pm at Endeavour, Chaguanas.

 

Both teams won their quarterfinal matches convincingly on Thursday. At UTT O’Meara, Queen’s Park eased past Moosai by 64 runs. Daron Cruickshank led the Parkites with an all-round performance, scoring 63 and returning later in the day to snatch 2/22 with his medium pace. Queen’s Park posted 200/9 batting first, as West Indies Under-19 batsman Jeremy Solozano supported Cruickshank, scoring 48. Moosai never got close, as it was bundled out for 136 in 43.2 overs. Khary Pierre was the chief destroyer for Queen’s Park, taking 4/20.

 

At Kennedy Park in a match played simultaneously, Powergen cruised to a 100-run win over Caldrac. The left-handed pair of Nicholas Sookdeosingh (47) and Sherwin Ganga (43) both showed form for Powergen, guiding their team to an imposing 254/7. Spin bowler Ancil Bhagan, who has been taking many wickets this season, grabbed 4/32 to limit Caldrac to 154 all out in 42.1 overs. Ganga was also effective with the ball, taking 3/21.

 

FCB Clarke Road and Jenexcon Tableland will square off tomorrow in the second semifinal at Syne Village, Penal, from 2.30 pm.
