National Team Preparation Continues

Bowlers held the spotlight in the two matches organized by the senior coach Pearson Best for the National Team as they prepare for the ICC Americas region T20 tournament scheduled for November 26th to December 1st. In a wicket holding plenty moisture from heavy showers during the week, only Omar Willis 42, Conroy Wright 31 and Zachary McLaughlin 28 were able to come to grips with the conditions. Two matches are scheduled for this Sunday and senior coach Pearson Best is looking forward to improved performances from the top batsmen.

It was a cool and refreshing Sunday evening as the Women T20 tournament began at Smith Road Oval. Picking up where they left off, national women cricketers Wyvonne Forbes, Desrene Cox, Vanessa Cameron, Marcia Moiten and Sheila Rankine held the spotlight. The Women Off season T20 began with an exciting match between Roses lead by Wyvonne Forbes and Orchids captained by Desrene Cox. Batting first Orchids scored 95 for 5 – Desrene Cox 35. Roses replied very strongly with Wyvonne Forbes missing the first half century by 1 run scoring 49. Roses won by 8 wickets. Matches continue on Sundays.
