Bonner blooms for CCC against JA

Spanish Town, Jamaica – Former Young West Indies all-rounder Nkrumah Bonner missed out on a century as Combined Campuses and Colleges carried the fight to Jamaica on the third day of their fifth round match of the WICB First Class Championship on Sunday.

The 22-year-old cracked a highly attractive 87 to help carry CC&C to 353 all out, after they resumed the day at Chedwin Park on 253-7. At the close, Jamaica were 133-3 with the in-form Marlon Samuels already back in the pavilion cheaply.

Martin's strikes put pressure on T&T

Port-of-Spain, Trinidad – Leeward Islands leg-spinner Anthony Martin struck three lethal blows late in the day on Sunday to leave Trinidad and Tobago tottering in their pursuit of victory.

Set 183 to win, T&T slumped to 75-5 at the close at Queen’s Park Oval, still 108 runs adrift of their target. With Runako Morton taking no further part in the match, it means T&T are effectively six wickets down.

Champs made to work hard by Kenya

Banguluru, India – Australia claimed their place in the quarter-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup with a hard-working 60-run win over Kenya, on Sunday.

Collins Obuya in particular had a day to remember, finishing unbeaten just two short of a century for Kenya, who restored pride with a defiant performance despite losing by 60 runs. Obuya, who started his career as a leg-spinner, has converted to a top-order batsman and won the Man-of-the-Match award for his determined 98 not out.
