Augustus strokes half-century in trial
By STEPHON NICHOLAS Saturday, January 11 2014
QUEEN’S Park batsman Jonathan Augustus stroked 85 yesterday to give the national selectors a timely reminder of his quality on day one of the second three-day trial match at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva.
Batting for Cooper XI, the right-hander took advantage of two dropped catches to compile the top score to propel his team to a respectable 240 for eight off 73 overs at the close of play. He faced 136 balls, batted 179 minutes and slammed 13 fours and a six. Earlier, left-arm orthodox Kavesh Kantasingh accounted for opener Jeremy Solozano (14) and Justin Guillen (0) in a double blow. But Nicholas Sookdeosingh (31) and Augustus repaired the damage before the former was caught by Yannick Ottley off Tevin Robertson. Jason Mohammed made 44 from 66 balls but became “leggie” Imran Khan’s first victim. He later removed Kevon Cooper (0) while Vikash Mohan (10) was dismissed by pacer Rayad Emrit in his return from injury. Augustus was unperturbed, and after getting past his 50, began to accelerate.
