GUYANA Under-15 cricketers continued their impressive performances in this year’s Regional tournament, whipping Trinidad & Tobago by 32 runs in a round three clash yesterday.

Batting first, the Guyanese struggled to build a huge total and in the end they were bowled out for just 105 in 45.5 overs. Zeynil Ramsammy and Chandrapaul Ramraj, scored 16 runs apiece.

Bowling for T&T Ronnilster Perreira claimed 3-11.

In reply, T&T struggled from the outset, and were eventually bowled out for 73 in 35.2 overs. Safeik Khan and Ramraj were the chief destroyers with figures of 4-11 and 4-18 respectively.

The Guyanese will play Jamaica at the Jamalco Cricket ground tomorrow before playing Barbados at Up Park Camp on April 4.

The Regional Under-15 Tournament – in its 23rd year – will be contested under a round-robin format, featuring five rounds of matches with the team accumulating the most points being declared champions.

The Barbadians captured the title last year on home soil, following victories over Windwards, Leewards, Jamaica and T&T, and a no-result against Guyana.
