Tuesday, January 12, 2016

The Trinidad and Tobago Invitational Under 17's cricket team continued its tour of New Zealand with an impressive 30-run win over the Wellington Under 1’s Academy yesterday.

It was the second win from three matches on the tour. Batting first in a 50 overs per side fixture, at Linden Park, Wellington the T&T were dismissed for 205 in 49.1 overs with Chystian Thurton top scoring with 61. He shared in an opening partnership with Josh DaSilva who made 28
Good contributions also came from Nathaniel Mc David and Keon Mason who made 26 and 22 respectively. Off spinner Nick Greenwood had 4/43 for the home team.

In reply the Wellington Academy found the bowling and fielding of the visitors too much and were restricted to 175 in 49.3 overs with opener Luke Georgeson making 58.  Ronaldo Ali-Mohammed in his first match on the tour took 4/46 and fellow opening bowler Joshua Dookie had 2/30.

T&T will play a Wellington Under 19 today.
