Hillview, El Dorado East clash in schools cricket

Trinidad Guardian article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Defending PowerGen Secondary School 50-over League champions Hillview College, will face reigning Intercol T20 champions El Dorado East Secondary today when round two of the league competition bowls off. 

Hillview and El Dorado East will look to bounce back, after both teams lost their opening matches on Tuesday. Both teams were disappointing in the batting department. 

Chasing 165 for victory against Princes Town West, Hillview was bundled out for 136 in 46 overs as Hillview’s spin bowling effort earlier in the day was wasted. National youth spin bowlers Afdal Khan (3/21) and Jesse Bootan (3/23) took three wickets each for Hillview.

Tevon Jadoo’s five-wicket haul was not enough for El Dorado East to snatch a win either. Bowling first, El Dorado reduced Carapichaima East to 151 all out in 34 overs. Unfortunately, El Dorado folded for 118, handing Carapichaima East a 33-run win.

In another interesting contest today, promoted teams Vishnu Boys and Barrackpore West will face each other at the latter’s school ground. Both teams won their opening round matches.

In other matches, Naparima will tackle Carapichaima East, Trinity College East will play Presentation, Chaguanas and Princes Town West will host Fatima.
