Parkites humiliate Diamond at Oval
By JOEL BAILEY Monday, May 13 2013
QUEEN’S PARK inflicted serious humiliation on F&E Diamond United, dismissing the visitors for a mere 16 runs at the Queen’s Park Oval, St Clair yesterday to claim their Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) National League Premier Division Final Round meeting by an innings-and-51 runs.
The 2012 champs, who held a first innings lead of 67 runs, skittled out Diamond for the lowest Premier Division total in recent memory, as Tion Webster collected five wickets for 11 runs and Sherwin Peters 5/5.
In reply to Diamond United’s 266, Queen’s Park, resuming on 130/3, were bowled out for 333 with a top-score of 74 from former West Indies Under-19 batsman Jonathan Augustus, 62 from ex-national opener Marlon Barclay and 45 from Webster.
Shivan Narine captured 3/54 and Farrell Jugmohan 3/83 for Diamond.
Newly-crowned champs PowerGen held on for a draw against hosts Moosai Sports, despite surrendering first innings points at Honeymoon Park, Tunapuna.
From their overnight score of 192/7, in response to Moosai’s 324, PowerGen were bowled out for 234 with Rajendra Chandrika making 69, national ‘limited-overs specialist’ Sherwin Ganga 52 and ex-TT opener Evin Lewis 35.
Amir Khan claimed 5/61 and evergreen left-arm spinner Ken Hazel 3/80.
Moosai, in their second innings, declared on 202/5 with discarded national player Kjorn Ottley scoring 75, Jeetendra Sookdeo 44 and Ewart Nicholson 25 not out. Another recent TT player, left-arm spinner Kavesh Kantasingh, took 3/72.
Set a victory target of 293, PowerGen finished on 230/7 with Khan grabbing 6/82.
Lewis led the scoring for the visitors with 80, while Ganga notched 40, Nicholas Sookdeosingh 38 and Chandrika 25.
