Schools cricket title up for grabs today

Trinidad Guardian article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Leaders Vishnu Boys will need an outright win and some bonus points today, to ensure the Powergen Secondary Schools 50-over league trophy goes to their school, in the last round of competition.

Vishnu is hanging on to a three-point lead over second placed Barrackpore West Secondary. Vishnu will be favourites today against bottom placed El Dorado East at the Esmeralda Recreation Ground. In the last round on Tuesday, three of the five matches were abandoned at the halfway stage due to rain, including Vishnu’s match against Naparima.

Defending champions Hillview, still has a chance to win the title today when it faces Barrackpore West at Honeymoon Park, El Dorado. Fourth placed Hillview has improved over the course of the season, and after defeating Vishnu in round seven, followed by a three-wicket win over Trinity College East on Tuesday (round eight), the Hillview boys are confident.

Third placed Techsafe Princes Town West will also have eyes on the trophy when it tackles sixth placed Carapichaima East.
