New York Regional Trials Continues on Thursday 16th at Baisley Pond Cricket Park from 1pm, with final day schedule Saturday 18th from 8 am. Players are asked to arrive 30 minutes before for a timely start. On day one last Saturday NY U-18 batting first closing on 168 for 8 on the back of 86 by the in form Amarnauth Persaud. Persaud took advantage of both pace and spin bowling. Persaud lead by example as he had a procession of partners joining him briefly before departing. Cassius Burton 23 and Sajid Salam 17 providing the most support. Persaud played an array of shots to counter the attacking field setting from the U-21. As Persaud flourish in damp conditions none of his partners were composed to post any sizable partnerships.
Quick bowler Casper Davis Jr returned at the close and accounted for the main man, as Persaud held out to long off, Dino Cho Wee Nam obliging, Persaud seemingly undone by fatigue with the close near. That dismissals opened opportunity for Azurdeen Mohammed’s side to create further inroads, as Davis worked the timber, of Salam. Dino bowling the last over of the day with three slips at his disposal was repaid as Davis held on at third slip to account for the eight wicket, Visavjeet Panthania Singh with U-18 at 168/8, not out was Tanveer Khan and Faraz Riaz. Casper Davis Jr. leading his side with three wickets, left arm seamer Dino Cho Wee Nam and off spinner Thakur Singh with two each. Left orthodox Mohammed had one wicket in his first over of a change spell alongside medium pacers, Regis Burton and orthodox spinner Sharma Sukhdeo putting in decent work with the ball.
