T&T whips Guyana in U19
KINGSTOWN, St Vincent -Defending champions T&T trounced early leaders Guyana by nine wickets inside two days, while Barbados’ Joshua Bishop grabbed a historic nine-wicket haul to put Barbados in control against the Leeward Islands after the second day of play in the Regional Under-19 Championships yesterday.
Resuming from their overnight score of 51 for four, T&T were eventually dismissed for 102, two runs shy of Guyana’s first innings total.
Kevin Sinclair was the top bowler for Guyana, taking 5-42, while Ashmed Nedd took 3-34.
In their second innings, Guyana found themselves in early trouble, slipping to 28 for three. However, through the efforts of Joshua Persuad who made 71 and Baskar Yadram (26), Guyana recovered to 86-3.
But Justyn Gangoo triggered a middle-order collapse, which saw Guyana losing four wickets for just 28 runs and their last seven wickets for 51 runs.
Gangoo finished with the impressive figures of 5-27 and he was ably assisted by Nathaniel McDavid (3-35) and Navin Bidaisee (2-40).
Chasing 139 for victory, T&T lost the early wicket of Bidaisee, but it was one-way traffic from thereon as Leonardo Julien who finished unbeaten on 87 not out and Cephas Cooper 41 not out shared an unbroken partnership of 119 to steer T&T to victory.
