Powergen, Tableland meet again today
Defending T&T Cricket Board Premiership T20 champions Powergen, will face Jenexcon Tableland today in Group B round three action of the TTCB T20 competition at Syne Village, Penal. The two teams met on Saturday and Sunday in the national league two-day competition, which ended in a draw. Both teams won its opening round fixtures two weeks ago. Round two matches last week Wednesday were postponed because of the passing of former national Under-19 cricketer Tevin Robertson. In round one, Powergen cruised to a nine-wicket win over Clico Preysal. Powergen dismissed Preysal for 78 in 17.3 overs, with spin bowler Jason Mohammed taking 3/16. Sherwin Ganga led the chase, scoring an unbeaten 56 to propel the defending champs to 83/1 in 12.5 overs.
Tableland’s encounter against Esmeralda was a high scoring one. Esmeralda made 190/9 in its 20 overs, despite 3/28 from Kenton Thompson. Steven Taylor (86) and William Perkins (60) did not let the huge target intimidate them, as they both banged half-centuries to guide Tableland to 192/3. In other group B matches FCB Clarke Road will play Esmeralda and Caldrac will tackle Clico Preysal. In group A, Moosai battles Alescon Comets, Seenath’s Auto Bamboo faces Munroe Road and Merry Boys, which won the UWI T20 tournament earlier this year, takes on Queen’s Park.
