Trinidad Express / Trinidad and Tobago Red Force’s batting woes continued yesterday as they slipped to 129 for five on the rain-affected second day of their Professional Cricket League four-day match against the Windward Islands Volcanoes at Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia yesterday.
Replying to the home team’s 400 for eight declared, Yannick Cariah held the T&T innings together with an unbeaten 40 before rain forced an early end yesterday after threatening throughout the day. T&T were tormented again by pacer Kenroy Peters (three for 14) who removed both openers after a solid 45-run opening stand. Jeremy Solozano started the slide after he was caught by Andre Fletcher for a patient 15 off 58 balls and more than an hour at the crease. Evin Lewis hit 28 off 53 balls with three fours before he was caught by Devon Smith as T&T slipped to 46 for two. They were 67 for four after skipper Jason Mohammed fell to Peters for three, while Delorn Johnson struck to get rid of Kjorn Ottley for two. Cariah and Yannick Ottley then put on 46 for the fifth wicket to revive the innings before Mervin Matthews sent the latter back to the pavilion for 19 via a Sunil Ambris catch before rain stopped play for the final time. Cariah hit seven fours yesterday and faced 90 balls during his two hours in the middle. He and Steven Katwaroo (six not out) will continue the fight for the Red Force today when the match resumes at 9:30 a.m., weather permitting.
