Amurdan Stars in Under 19’s Practice Match

Justin Amurdan was the ultimate star, as the West Indies under 19 players commenced their final round of practice matches, prior to selecting the squad for the upcoming under 19 world cup, to be played in the Caribbean, between January and February of next year.

The 50 overs encounter was played at the Coolidge Cricket grounds in Antigua on Thursday and Amurdan stroked a cultured 77, batting for two and a half hours and hitting 8 boundaries.

He was part of a century opening stand with Shaq Parris who got to 42 before he was smartly stumped by Carlon Bowens Tuckett.

Teddy Bishop also scored a run-a-ball 40.

Mathew Nandu was the pick of the bowlers, bagging 3 for 20 in the process.

The Giovonte Depeiza led team got to 212 for 4 in 43.4 overs, in the chase of 212 all out made by the Ackeem Auguste team which got to 212 all out, batting first.

The Auguste eleven were in bails of trouble at 118 for 8, but Edwards and Mahase teamed up in an enterprising and face-saving partnership, to take them to the eventual total of 212, with Mahase 61 not out at the end and Edwards getting 22.

The next game is set for Monday 22nd November, at the same venue.
