Trinidad Express article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Trinidad and Tobago batsman Adrian Barath hit an unbeaten 61 yesterday to lead defending Sunday League 50 over champions Queen’s Park Cricket Club to a six-wicket win over Caldrac Club in their Group A match at Gilbert Park in California yesterday.

The win ensured the Parkites stayed at the top of Group A with nine points from three games and assured them of a place in the quarter-finals of the competition.

The Parkites dismissed Caldrac for 147 with T&T pacer Shannon Gabriel grabbing four for 17. Barath then led the Parkites to their target off 31.4 overs.

Also advancing to the quarters were PowerGen Penal who also won their third straight game of the competition yesterday in Group B.

They beat Alescon Comets by eight wickets at Syne Village in Penal to stay at the top of their group with two more matches to play in the group stage.

Elsewhere, Yannick Ottley, who made zero in T&T’s 17-run loss to Barbados in Saturday night’s NAGICO Super50 final, came good for his club First Citizens Clarke Road United, slamming an unbeaten 86 to set up their 49-run win over Moosai Sports in Group B.

Clarke Road made 269 for six when they batted first with Ranga Lachana (71) and Ryan Ramdass (54) also scoring half centuries before restricting Moosai to 220 for nine. Nicholas Alexis top-scored for Moosai with 89.

Evin Lewis, another T&T player who had to settle for second place in the Super50 final, hit 41 yesterday to help Jenexcon Tableland secure a 65-run over CLICO Preysal at Inshan Ali Park, while pacer Marlon Richards, who was a reserve player in T&T’s Super50 side, was also in good form, taking three for 25 to help Merry Boys beat Seenath’s Auto Bamboo Sports by 154 runs at Bamboo Village Recreation Ground.
