Lewis stakes claim for T&T spot with 110

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Evin Lewis staked his claim for a Regional 4-Day spot in the Trinidad & Tobago team by slamming a century on the final day of T&T's 3-Day trial.

The Rayad Emrit XI started the final day on 286/8, trailing the Yannick Ottley XI's first innings score by 10 runs. Yannic Cariah and Emrit himself frustrated the Yannick Ottley XI bowlers as both held out for a long period and scored 41 runs each.

The Yannick Ottley XI eventually managed to end the Rayad Emrit XI, bowling them out for 338 runs. However, in their second innings, they now trailed by 42 runs. Imran Khan starred on the final day, finishing with 3-39 but Derone Davis remained the pick of the bowlers, who a day earlier took four wickets.

In their second innings, the Yannick Ottley XI got off to a blistering start thanks to Evin Lewis. Together with Marlon Barclay, both batsmen took the Yannick Ottley XI to 52 before the Rayad Emrit XI made some inroads with three quick wickets.

However, Lewis remained bolted at the other end. He scored 110 runs from 132 balls, hitting 10 fours and five sixes along the way. Kavesh Kantasingh and Akeal Hosein both snared three wickets each for the Rayad Emrit XI before both captains shook hands with the Yannick Ottley XI on 185/7.

T&T have a bye in the first round of the Regional 4-Day. Last season's finalists will open their campaign in Round 2 against the Leeward Islands at the Queen's Park Oval from March 7th, 2014.
