West Indies PCL Team of the Week Round II

Vishaul Singh has the highest individual score (150) of the 2015-2016 WIPCL Season

Vishaul Singh has the highest individual score (150) of the 2015-2016 WIPCL Season

Between the first round post and this one, West Indies had named the Test team to tour Australia beginning next month. Of those selected only three were on the first Round team of the week, while only one made the selection this edition. A week ago the issue of diminishing returns in the Fast bowling department was highlighted, with that department showing improvement in round two. Two Fast bowlers had five wickets hauls this round, up from none in round one. The key cause for concern this week was the fact the only two of 12 openers had a score of fifty plus; demonstrating another weak link in the regional game.

Jamaica Scorpions hosted Windwards Volcanoes in the more competitive of the two matches with results. Andre Mc Carthy (92) leading the batting for the Scorpions just missing a hundred earning him a place on the TotR. There were starts for John Campbell 43, David Bernard 43, Nikita Miller 39, and Damion Jacobs 40. For Volcanoes Liam Sebastien scalped seven wickets in the first innings narrowly missing on the TotR. Mervyn Matthews and Shane Shillingford had five wickets each in the second innings. Batting for the Volcanoes, Sunil Ambris scored 89 and 40 in a losing effort. Devon Smith had his second second innings fifty of the season. Nikita Miller’s nine wicket haul won the match for the Scorpions earning him the man of the match.

Guyana Jaguars continuing their prolific form from the 2014-2015 season completed a compelling innings victory of Leewards Hurricanes. A massive hundred by Vishaul Singh (150) similar to Rajendra Chandrika’s 146 in game one led the Jaguars. Shivnarine Chanderpaul rolled back the years with a half-century of his own. Steven Jacobs was unbeaten on 63 while there were starts from Christopher Barnwell 48, and Anthony Bramble 42. Bowling for the Hurricanes Alzarri Joseph (5/99) recorded the first five wicket haul for a pacer this season, he was supported by Offspinner Jacques Taylor who had 3/70. Leewards were stumped for 85 in the first innings by Gudesh Moti-Kanhai who scalped 6/20 to added to his second innings tally of 5/85. Steven Jacobs had 3/97 with only Nkrumer Bonner 89 and Daron Cruickshank 57 offering any resistance in the second innings.

In the closest of the three matched Barbados Pride and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force played to a draw, which was dominated by the batsmen. Sharmarh Brook led the way with a century and a half-century, 111 and 55. Kraigg Brathwaite scored 72 in the second innings with starts for Roston Chase (59), Shane Dowrich (48 and 40) and Kyle Corbin 46. For the Red Force Imran Khan had match figures of 6/165 with Shannon Gabriel supporting with 4/101. Batting for Red Force there were starts for Steven Katwaroo 64, Kyle Hope and Yanick Ottley 45 each, along with 41 from Evin Lewis. For Pride Kevin Stoute was the best bowler for a second consecutive week with 5/83.

Team of Round (TotR) II: Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Nkrumer Bonner, Vishaul Singh, Sharmarh Brooks, Sunil Ambris, Andre McCarthy, Steve Katwaroo (wk), Nikita Miller, Mervyn Matthews, Alzarri Joseph and Gudesh Moti-Kanhai

West Indies PCL First Round Round-up

windiesAs the Windies continue its struggles across all formats in Sri Lanka the first round of the First Class season offered some insight into the state of the regional game.

Trinidad and Tobago Red Force had the largest margin of victory, by an innings over the Leewards Hurricanes. It was a total team effort by the Red Force with a number of batsmen scoring fifties as well as wickets shared among the bowlers. There was no one really knocking down that selectors doors as all the batsmen (Evin Lewis 66, Steven Katwaroo 71, Narsingh Deonarine 55 and Yanick Cariah 50) who were among the runs still need to prove that the really deserve a chance at the higher level albeit match one of the season. For the bowlers, spinners Kavesh Kantasingh and Imran Khan had six wicket each but are yards off in a crowded talent pool. In this fixture there was little for the fast bowlers to write home about, which is a telling sign. The Caribbean’s Fast bowling pool is a dwindling resource.

Barbados Pride were the second best winners on the weekend with a 10 wicket shootout of the Jamaican Scorpions. This fixture had one of the two centurions of the round and it came from incumbent West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite. Following a lean spell in Sri Lanka, K. Brathwaite will be keen to take advantage of the First Class season to continue to cement his spot in the senior team set up. Similarly fellow Windies opener Shai Hope was among the runs with 71, he like Kraigg will be look to put a horrid Sri Lankan experience behind him. For the Scorpions fellow Barbadian and West Indies international Kirk Edwards notch the only half century for his side, reminding us of his talent. But like those mentioned before Edwards will need to put in more work to alert the selectors of his credentials for a recall. For the bowlers there were no main standouts, Nikita Miller (4), Miguel Cummins (5), Kevin Stoute (5) were the best returns in the wicket column, significant but not compelling to aid the the current West Indian hemorrhage.


Rajendra Chandrika had been selected to the Test team without a First Class hundred and on his return to First Class cricket following tours with the Test team his silenced critics with a commanding 146 which earned him the man of the match in the Guyana Jaguars’ victory over Windwards Volcanoes. Chandrika’s ton was the only fifty plus score for the Jaguars over two innings. Chandrika’s will do well to continue along the same vein to enhance his profile. The only other fifty plus score came from discarded Test opener Devon Smith, who is now into the twilight of his career. The spinners led the way with the wickets here with Shane Shillingford snatching 11 scalps along side Steve Jacobs who had eight. Medium Fast bowler Raymon Reifer had four wickets. Both spinners making early cases again in a crowded talent pool.

Team of the Week: Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Rajendra Chandrika, Kirk Edwards, Shai Hope, Narsingh Deonarine, Steven Katwaroo (wk), Kevin Stoute, Steven Jacobs, Shane Shillingford, Kavesh Kantasingh, and Miguel Cummins,

Liberty Turn Back East Side Warrior in EACA Blitz T20

Kirton, Shakoor & Ramdihal star in Liberty SC T20 win


Kirton, Shakoor and Ramdihal from l-r

Boosted by the high of capturing their maiden EACA 40 Over title, Liberty Spots Club bowled off their 2015 EACA T20 tournament with a 50 runs victory over East Side Warriors. The 40 Overs final most valuable player, Andre Kirton, followed up his whirlwind 87 off 36 balls in the final with another half-century. Youth player Javed Shakoor supported Kirton well with an unbeaten 29. In defense of 163, Hemendra Ramdihal picked up 3 wickets to wrap up the victory.

Hosting the Long Island based ESW at Lido Beach, LSC won the toss and chose to bat first. Antonio Chan (10), Dilly Khilawan (11), Trinson Carmichael (10) and Terrence Madramootoo (12) all got starts but could not push on. The fall of the 4th wicket left the GMA Enterprise and Royal Empress Catering Hall sponsored LSC with 75 runs on the board and with 9 overs remaining. Youth player Javed Shakoor joined Kirton who had already started making dents in into the ESW attack.

Shakoor played a solid hand while Kirton continued the attack on the fielding team. The pair added 88 runs for the 5th wicket to have LSC finish at 163 for 4 at the end of the 20th over. Kirton hit four 4’s and 1 maximum in his unbeaten 67 while Sahkoor struck 1 four while compiling his LSC best, an unbeaten 29.

In reply ESW kept wickets in hand but fell behind the required run rate. The new ball pair of Madramootoo and Tooneshwar Kristona kept things tight before Leon Mohabir and Trinson Carmichael continued to keep pressure on the ESW openers. Mohabir would strike to get the first break through before Carmichael scalped the 2nd wicket.  

The introduction of Hemendra Ramdihal in to the attack sent the ESW inning crashing. Ramdihal picked up three quick wickets while Vijendra Singh pick up a fourth. By the time skipper Danesh Deonarain picked up two wickets in the final over of the inning the 50 runs victory was all but wrapped up.

Bowling for LSC Ramdihal finished with 3 wickets for 15 runs, Deonarain 2 wickets for 2 runs while Mohabir, Sing and Carmichael finished with 1 wicket each.

LSC moves on to the second week of the competition where they will complete a double header against Victory CC and Camelot CC to finish off their zone stage games. The double header is scheduled for the Baisley Cage with the first game against Victory CC slated for 10 AM and the 2nd against Camelot CC set for 2 PM.
