Solozano century guides team to victory

Selectors name T&T U-19 squad

 Trinidad and Tobago Under-19 batsman Jeremy Solozano continued his good form with the bat, slamming 104 to set up his team’s 43-run win over the national Under-17 squad in a practice match at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva, on Wednesday.

Solozano, who will lead the T&T Under-19s at the regional championships set to take place in Guyana from July 20 to August 10, faced 109 balls during his knock before reti­ring to give another batsman a chance in the middle.

The left-hander’s ton led the Under-19s to 250 for two off 45 overs.

Also getting some runs was Under-19 vice-captain Amir Jangoo, who scored 71 in an opening partnership of 193 with Solozano, who hit a double century and 150 in the BG T&T Under-19 tournament.

Off-spinner Roop­narine then grabbed four top-order wickets, including top-scorer Keagan Simmons for 63, as the Under-17s were restricted to 207 for seven off 41 overs.

Left-arm spinner Tevon Jadoo grabbed two for 34, while Justin Joseph took one for 50 off seven overs.

The Under-19 selectors trimmed the squad from 16 to 14 following the match, with Darion Ramdhanie and Jordan Samkaran missing the cut.

Among the players who made the final 14-man squad were leg-spinner Jesse Bootan and middle order batsman Camillo Carimbocas, who were both part of the Under-19 team last year, and fast-bowlers Akeel Seetal, Anderson Phillip and Shane Smith, who are all new to the national team.

Summarised scores:

T&T Under-19s 250-2 (45 overs) (Jeremy Solozano 107 retired, Amir Jangoo 71) vs T&T Under-17s 207-7 (41 overs) (Keagan Simmons 63, Sachin Seecharan 35, Jordan Warner 31; Samuel Roopnarine 4/32, Tevon Jadoo 2/34).

—T&T Under-19s won by 43 runs.
