Esmeralda, Preysal meet in crucial T20 match

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Esmeralda Sports Club and Clico Preysal will clash today at Preysal to keep their quarterfinal hopes alive in the T&T Cricket Board Premier Division T20 competition. Both teams lost their opening two matches in Group B of the competition. The top four teams in each of the two groups will qualify for the quarterfinals. There are six teams in each group. Both teams have shown some form of late. In the national league competition on the weekend, Preysal won its first match of the competition, defeating Jenexcon Tableland by an innings and 37 runs. 

Spin bowlers Narsingh Deonarine and Bryan Charles starred for Preysal. West Indies player Deonarine took 6/52 in the second innings, while former West Indies Under-19 player Charles finished with eight wickets in the match. Esmeralda also put in a creditable performance last weekend against Alescon Comets, but had to settle for first innings points. Bowling first, Esmeralda restricted Comets to 247 in the first innings. In reply, Anthony D’Andrade led the way, scoring 95 to guide Esmeralda to 284. However, the match ended in a tame draw with Comets on 201/7 in the second innings. All matches bowl off at 2 pm.
