U-16s lose

Trinidad Express article.

Sydney, Australia - Trinidad and Tobago’s Under-16 invitational cricket team lost their first 50-over contest in their Tri-Nations Series in Australia, going down by 25 runs against the hosts at Freebody Oval in Canberra on yesterday.

This followed T&T’s loss in the T20 final to the Australians by 18 runs in a low-scoring contest on Wednesday, after T&T had beaten the home side in the group stage.

Australia batted first and got to 198 for eight in their 50 overs.

Invited player Daryl Cyrus (four wickets) of Grenada and Jonathan Bootan (two) proved the best of the bowler for the T&T team.

In their response, unlike the two previous matches where he scored half-centuries, T&T’s captain Kirstan Kallicharan was unable to get into double figures.

They got their main fight from A.Jangoo, who got 63, and Keagan Simmons, who hit 31 in a second-wicket stand of 43.

T&T still made a fist of the chase, but the total was too much for them as they were bowled out for 173 in 45.3 overs.
