News day / Mairam, who was recently selected for the Trinidad and Tobago Under 19 team, wrecked the top order of Younstaz with his steady leg-spin. Together with Jahron Alfred (2/16), they restricted the batting side to only 97 runs all out in the last over of their innings.
In EYM`s reply, Richard Ali battered the bowlers throughout his unbeaten innings of 67 runs from 27 balls with seven fours and three sixes. He was aided by his opening partner Kwasi Alfred with 21 runs before he was run out. Ali then sealed the victory with two consecutive sixes in the 13th over.
The evening before, Amir Jangoo starred with bat and ball in consecutive games for the Combine All Stars B team who defeated Central Empire by five wickets. Jangoo, known as a wicket-keeper/batsman for the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force, had bowling figures of three for 10 from his four overs and also scored 44 runs.
Central Empire won the toss and were bowled out in the 19th over for a meagre 110 runs. Their total was boosted by the innings of 28 runs from Saiba Batoosingh and an aggressive 21 off 12 balls from Dejourn Charles which included two maximums from his first two balls faced. Isaiah Rajah had bowling figures of three for 21 from his four overs.
The opening pair of Sheldon Thomas and Jangoo for the Combine All Stars later put together a partnership of 88 runs which set up the victory. Thomas scored a patient 28 runs from 32 balls and the subsequent Man of the Match Jangoo made his 44 runs from 33 balls with two fours and three sixes. After the opening pair fell, they lost another three wickets but reached their target of 111 runs in the 17th over quite comfortably.
