RENOWN and Killdeer registered big victories last weekend in the second round Two-Day League competition of the South East Zone of the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board.
Three Renown batsmen hit impressive centuries to lead their team to an innings and 38 runs win over Blended, while Killdeer triumphed by six wickets in a low-scoring match against Rio Claro Sports.
Renown also demonstrated their superiority over Blended winning their 20/20 encounter by 38 runs in a key Group “C” fixture.
There were also note-worthy performances in the Two-Day League by Christian Conquerors, Strivers, and St Mary’s in Division One, who all collected full points in their respective fixtures.
Also, in winners’ row was President’s Associates of St Mary’s Village, Moruga, a new team campaigning in Division II which earned an exciting nine-wicket victory over Tristar at the Sancho St Julien Ground.
The South-East Zone also played host to a high-powered delegation over the weekend led by president of the TTCB Azim Bassarath.
Bassarath, accompanied by chairman of the Princes Town Regional Corporation Gowrie Roopnarine, Councillor Latchmi Narine Ramdhan, chairman of the South-East Zone Kelvin Mohammed, and community activists Anita Haynes and Randy Ramadharsingh visited eight venues over the two days where zone matches were being played.
The delegation met the players and officials and addressed several concerns which were raised and gave the assurance that all will be done to assist the growth and development of cricket throughout the district.
