Leewards versus Windwards Game Interestingly Poised

By:Curtis Morton

As the regional under 19 cricket tournament hosted by the WICB continues, the match between arch rivals Leewards under 19 and Windwards under 19, is interestingly poised at the end of day two.

The Leewards batted first on day one and were off to a steady start with Jamie Cornelius and Kadeem Henry getting them to 38 before Cornelius pulled a ball straight into the hands of the deep midwicket fielder.

Uri Smith then came to the crease and batted aggressively from the outset, getting to a well-played half century, before gifting his hand, with an uncalled for, head in the air swing.

The Leewards managed to get to 180 all out and then bowled out the Windwards for a mere 95 runs with Elroy Francis and Kian Pemberton getting 4 and 3 wickets respectively.

Leewards did not fare any better in their second innings, being bowled out for 174 runs.

That left the Windwards needing 211 runs for victory. At the end of day two, they were interestingly placed on 49 for 1.

With an entire day remaining, they now need 162 runs for victory and have 9 wickets in hand.
