Under-19s get first 50-over win
Trinidad and Tobago Under-19 skipper Vikash Mohan led by example yesterday to spearhead his team’s 40-run win over Barbados in the opening match of the West Indies Cricket Board Regional Under-19 limited overs championship at Molineaux in St Kitts yesterday.
Mohan hit a useful score of 22 runs and grabbed three wickets for 18 runs to help his team ease past their opponents for their first win.
Batting first, T&T made 170 all out off 49.4 overs, with Brandon Ramdial hitting 35 and Jeremy Solozano adding 27.
The Bajans were dismissed for 130 in reply, with Mohan doing most of the damage.
Also chipping in was T&T pacer Tion Webster, who grabbed two for 23 to help in the win.
In other matches today, Jamaica defeated the Windward Islands by 31 runs at Conaree, and Guyana beat the ICC Americas team by seven wickets at Verchilds.
