Monday, March 25, 2013

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — Captain Kyle Corbin stroked an attractive half-century to lead a positive Combined Campuses and Colleges response, but fell late in the day to shift the momentum back in Trinidad and Tobago’s favour here yesterday.

West Indies fast bowler Ravi Rampaul has taken two for 49.

Earlier, T&T declared their first innings at 409 for nine after resuming on 285 for five at Queen’s Park Oval.

Jason Mohammed, starting the day on 119, carried on for 138, while wicketkeeper Stephen Katwaroo hit his second consecutive half-century with an even fifty, after carrying on from his overnight 28 not out.

Yannic Cariah stroked an unbeaten 43.

Off-spinner Ryan Austin finished with three for 47, while seamers Raymon Reifer (2-56), Kevin McClean (2-81) and Keswick Williams (2-89) all picked up two wickets apiece.

All told, Mohammed faced 243 balls in just under seven hours at the crease, striking 20 fours and two sixes. Katwaroo, meanwhile, stroked seven boundaries in an innings lasting 133 minutes and 110 balls.

The pair extended their sixth wicket stand to 104 before they were separated by McClean who trapped Katwaroo lbw.

Thomas and Alleyne then gave CCC a solid start by adding 43 for the first wicket before Rampaul removed both to leave the score on 61 for three.
