Port of Spain, Trinidad – Steven Katwaroo fired a half-century (60) for the T&T Ottley XI to lead his side’s first innings effort when the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (T&TCB) held its second practice match at Balmain, Couva yesterday.
The T&T Kjorn Ottley XI won the toss and decided to bat, and Katwaroo’s 60 was the foundation on which their innings was built.
In a patient knock, Katwaroo’s 60 came off 179 balls in 188 minutes including six four,s as the Ottley X! made 181 all out from 79.4 overs. Yanic Cariah supported with a knock of 38.
Katwaroo and Cariah were the only resistance against the Rayad Emrit XI’s Akeal Hosiein who grabbed 8 for 46 to wipe out nearly the remainder of the Ottley XI batting line up.
The Emrit XI ended the day on 10 /1 in reply, capturing the scalp of Adrian Barath for a cheap four runs.
The match continues today at the same venue.
