One can expect lots of intrigue when the semi-finals of the Inspire Sports/National Sports Council Under-13 Cricket Competition come off today at noon.

Defending champions Dover Juniors will meet Carlton Juniors at Dover, and Fusionz Boutique Passage United entertain CounterPoint Wanderers Juniors at Passage Road.

The final is slated for next Sunday at the Empire Club at Bank Hall.

Dover Juniors were the winners of the last two tournaments. Passage United have won a hat-trick of titles from the inception and, significantly, they have appeared in all five finals.

At Dover, all eyes will be on all-rounder Nyeem Young who has been the standout of the tournament. He has amassed 538 runs, including two centuries and two 50s. Left-arm spinner Rikeem Headley with 22 wickets is among the leading wicket-takers. 

Carlton will pin their hopes on the consistent pair of Zidane Clarke who has 171 runs and Savio Fergusson Player Of The Match in the quarter-final.

Passage United will put their trust in inspirational captain Indal Persaud, who has been in fine all-round form. He has 227 runs in addition to 20 wickets with medium-pace. Newcomer Shamar Persaud who came over from YMPC Juniors has made a good impact, compiling 194 runs and snaring ten wickets with his off-breaks.

Wanderers Juniors’ batting revolves around the much improved pair of Nico Reifer with 317 runs and Mekhail Marshall who has a total of 222 runs. Reifer has chipped in with 10 wickets. Brothers Hayden and Jake Hart will be seeking to repeat the sort of bowling performance they had in the quarter-finals. Jake has taken twelve wickets so far.
