Queen’s Park 50 overs Kings in Trinidad

  

 

PORT-OF-SPAIN: New local batting sensation Tion Webster cracked an imperious century to give Queen’s Park a four-wicket victory over Merryboys and the 2017 TTCB Sunday League crown.

Playing on a wonderful National Cricket Centre (NCC) strip, the batsmen on both sides enjoyed what was presented to them as a total of 689 runs were scored in the day/night encounter.

After Merryboys counted a mammoth 344/4 of their 50 overs, the fans from Patna would have envisaged an easy victory. However, they were up against the mighty Queen’s Park and Webster. The right hander has taken the local cricket scene by storm this season and came into the finals after hitting 172 not out in the semi-finals against PowerGen. He attacked from ball one and when he left the arena for 144, his team was well on course for victory. He faced just 99 balls, hitting 18 fours and three sixes. With skipper Justin Guillen out through injury, Webster had to shoulder the burden at the top of the order and this he did admirably well.  He was assisted in the victory hunt by Red Force batsman Yannic Carriah who made an unbeaten 92. The left hander faced 69 balls and struck eight fours and one six. Towards the end Terrence Hinds ensured the win with a hard hit 38 of 26 balls. There were two wickets apiece for Merryboys spinner Ricky Jaipaul and Ranga Latchana.

Earlier, Merryboys won the toss and decided to take first strike. The slipped to 118 for four before Isaiah Rajah and Aaron Alfred got together. They batted beautifully, especially Rajah who plays for the T&T Red Force. The son of former national player Aneal Rajah, the left hander smoked 141 of 111 balls with 12 fours and six sixes. Wicketkeeper Alfred was no less destructive and hammered an even unbeaten 100 of 75 balls with 11 fours and three sixes. the two added an unbroken 226 runs of 24.4 overs. Hinds took 2/64 from nine overs to be Queen’s Park best bowler.
