Simmons, Gopaul T&T U-15’s best

Trinidad and Tobago Under-15 opening batsman Keagan Simmons was named the best fielder of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Under-15 two-day championships, which ended in Jamaica on Friday.

Simmons took eight catches and had two run outs to top the fielding list, and he was also second best with the bat—he scored 250 runs, including two half-centuries—to help T&T win the tournament with 56.9 points, ahead of Windward Islands (54.2 points). The top batsman was Windwards skipper Emmanuel Stewart (269 runs, three fifties).

The Trinity College East batsman’s unbeaten 96 in the final round was also the tournament’s top individual score.

T&T had a number of good perfomers, with captain Kirstan Kallicharan (192 runs, 17 wickets) finishing in the top ten of the batting and bowling lists, while Saiba Batoosingh was eighth in the batting. T&T bowler Emilo Gopaul was fourth overall with 22 wickets.

Guyana’s Ronaldo Mohamed topped the bowlers with 33 scalps.
