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.
Vishnu Boys maintained its position atop the Powergen Secondary Schools 50-over cricket standings with one round left, as its match against Naparima was abandoned yesterday, after the first innings due to rain. Vishnu posted a healthy 252/9 batting first at the Wilson Road Recreation Ground in Penal. Hance Kallicharan and Brandon Boodram were the top batsmen for Vishnu, scoring 75 and 50 respectively. National youth players Jovan Ali and Clevon Kalawan were the pick of the bowlers for Naps. The leaders would have been confident at the break, but the heavens opened up to end the match prematurely. Fortunately for Vishnu, the match between Barrackpore West and Princes Town West was abandoned in the second innings, keeping Vishnu on top. Before yesterday’s matches, Barrackpore was in second place, followed by Princes Town. Princes Town made 209 all out in 42 overs and the match ended with Barrackpore on 23/0 after six overs.
