Q.C. strike early
Queen’s College took charge of their Lime Under-15 two-day 35-over match against St George Secondary, restricting the visitors to 103 for nine in 31 overs and closing the day at 129 for two in reply at their Husbands, St James grounds.†
St. George won the toss and elected to bat and were in trouble early, losing three wickets by the seventh over with only 14 runs on the board.
Medium-pace bowler for Queen’s College, Dikemba Wilson, did the early damage, capturing all three wickets.†
By the 20th over St. George were 60 for four, but Rashad Boxhill and Jameel Moore steadied the ship in a 57-run partnership before Boxhill was dismissed for nine and Moore followed two balls later after making 45.
The rest of the innings quickly went into decline.†Wilson finished with three for 18 and fellow medium-pacer Donte Niles took three for 20.†After two balls of Queen’s College’s innings, rain interrupted play for 90 minutes. On resumption Queen’s College batted soundly with the outfield somewhat slow and conditions rather slippery for the fielders.†
