T&T storm back, Guyana pile on the runs
Basseterre, St Kitts - The first day of the third round of matches in the Regional Under 19 tournament was completed today across three venues in St Kitts.
Here are the details:
AT EGSC MOLINEAUX - Jamaica v Leeward Islands
Tristan Coleman stood tall for Jamaica on Day 1 but would have felt unlucky to fall two runs short of a deserved century. The Leeward Islands won the toss and elected to field first, and Jeremiah Louis gave them the early breakthrough of Odaine McCatty.
However, Leroy Lug found a good partner in Coleman and both took the score to 77. Lug hit 51 from 64 balls in a knock that included seven fours and a six. He was one of three half-centurions on the day.
His partner in Coleman would be player of the day, hitting a solid 98 from 106 balls. Coleman batted for all of 217 minutes, hitting eleven fours and two sixes. Brandon King also hit an even half century for Jamaica, his knock coming from 77 balls.
Other than those three, no other batsman crossed 20 on the day. Shavon Moore and Shaquille Martina both finished with two wickets each as Jamaica closed Day 1 on 263/7.

AT CONAREE - Guyana v Windward Islands
Guyana's batsmen, led by Akashay Homraj, dominated Day 1 against the Windwards and finished in a good position in their bid to get first innings points. Homraj hit an even hundred from 103 balls late down the order to breathe some life into the Guyanese innings.
It was an aggressive knock consisting of 11 fours and three sixes. Up top, young batting sensation, Tagenarine Chanderpaul hit a quick half century. Chanderpaul smashed 11 fours in his knock of 66 to give his side a good start. The middle of the Guyana innings was well held up by Brian Sattur, who made 46.
Shawn Pereira also batted well down the order, hitting 47, but his innings was much unlike the others, patiently coming off 132 balls. Guyana closed Day 1 in a commanding position on 334/9. The last wicket pair of Vishoal Narayan (0) and Steven Sankar (1) are both at the crease.

AT WARNER PARK - Barbados v T&T
Trinidad and Tobago fell down with the bat but then got up with the ball, all on a topsy-turvy Day 1, which ended with the Red Force in control. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, things didn't go as plan for T&T.
By the end of the first hour, T&T were 61/4. Jerome Jones and Shamar Springer had done most of the damage at the top. Opener, Andy Gobin, played patiently for 23, but he couldn't last any longer than 48 ball.
Player of the day, Vikash Mohan, hit a run-a-ball 32 as T&T limped to 158 all out in their first innings. But with Barbados looking in total control, Mohan picked up the ball and changed the course of the day's play. T&T were four wickets down for 61 runs, Barbados were four wickets down for 25 runs.
Justin Joseph accounted for opener, Dario Boyce at the top, then it was all Vikash Mohan. The bowler got all the key Bajan wickets of Johnathan Drakes, Shamar Springer and Aaron Jones, to end Day 1 with figures of 3-23. Jesse Bootan had Carlos Maynard.
Barbados are in real danger at 58/6, still trailing T&T's first innings by 100 runs. If it's any consolation, captain Jameel Stuart is unbeaten on 25 while Jofra Archer is with him on 3.
