(SNO) — The Saint Lucia National Cricket Association continues to prepare the national senior male cricket team for the 2019 Windward Islands Goodwill Tournament.
The tournament takes place in St Vincent and the Grenadines at the end of this month.
Over the past weekend, a two-day practice/trial match was held at the Mindoo Philip Park. Due to very wet conditions on Saturday, the entire day’s play was lost. On Sunday, six hours of play was possible.
The teams were led by Windward Islands Volcanoes player Tarryck Gabriel and national player Jamal James. Gabriel’s team made 181 for 3 in three hours, having faced 46 overs.
Junior Henry led the scoring with 80, which included nine fours and four sixes; Stephen Naitram, 51 with a four and two sixes; Tonius Simon, 19 not out; and Tarryck Gabriel, 16.
In return, Jamal James’ team finished on 150 for 8 in 43 overs with guest player Denis Louis making 58 not out with seven fours and two sixes; Vidal Crandon, 41; and teenager Ackeem Auguste, 18.
The wicket takers for Tarryck Gabriel ‘s team were Dillan John and Joshua Mann with two wickets each and Kester Charlemagne, Keygan Arnold, Tonius Simon and Tarryck Gabriel with one wicket each.
The national team’s preparation continues during the week with training sessions on Tuesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. at the Mindoo Philip Park.
