Vishnu Boys go for 4th straight SSCL win

Vishnu Boys Hindu College will be going for a fourth consecutive win of the season when they face Carapichaima East Secondary in round six of the PowerGen Secondary Schools Cricket League Premier Division competition at Carapichaima today.

Vishnu Boys have won four of their previous five games, rising to second place on the standings following their most recent triumph, an eight-wicket win over previous leaders Presentation College Chaguanas.

Vishnu will be banking on prolific run-scoring Kirstan Kallicharan to lead them to victory after the Trinidad and Tobago Under-15 skipper slammed a double century in an Under-16 game last week.

Pres will also be in action today as they try to regain the top spot against current leaders Barrackpore West Secondary, who also have a good record of four wins in five games.

Former T&T Under-17 batsman Jeron Maniram was in good form for Barrackpore last week hitting 83, while Keron Kanhai, who is also a T&T youth player, grabbed four for 13 to complete their seven run win against Fatima College.

All matches bowl off at 10 a.m.
