Corbin hefts first ton
NORTH SOUND – Kyle Corbin collected his maiden first-class hundred for Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) in the WICB regional first-class championship against Leeward Islands yesterday.
The 20-year-old Corbin stroked 12 fours and one six in 108 from 143 balls in close to two-and-three-quarter hours, as the CCC, sent in to bat, were dismissed for 286 about half-hour before the scheduled close on the opening day of the third-round match.
Raymon Reifer hit seven fours and one six in 50 from 80 balls in 110 minutes. Romel Currency scored 35, Kevin McClean 30, and Carlos Brathwaite 22.
Gavin Tonge was the most successful Leewards bowler with three wickets for 58 runs from 18 overs.
Leewards reached four without loss from four overs at the close at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
Corbin anchored the top-half of the CCC batting, after the visitors dipped to 18 for two inside the first hour.
The new-ball pair of Baker and Tonge removed CCC captain Omar Phillips for four and Kjorn Ottley for a duck.
Corbin, a former Barbados Under-19 captain and Young West Indies player, joined Romel Currency, and carried CCC to 106 for two at lunch before they added 88 for the second wicket.
Currency was lbw to Baker for 35 after the interval to leave CCC 106 for two, but 19-year-old Raymon Reifer joined Corbin and they put on 75 for the fourth wicket.
But Corbin fell to Tonge after his milestone, and CCC slumped from 181 for three to 220 for six at tea. (CMC)
