Akeal the striker
Akeal Hosein has enjoyed a superb start on his introduction to the top level of local cricket.
The 20-year-old left-arm spinner, an intern at the Sagicor West Indies High Performance Centre, has collected a bundle of wickets for Super Centre Spartan in the LIME Elite Division competition.
In three matches, Hosein, who made his first-class debut for Trinidad and Tobago this year, has bagged 28 scalps at 8.14 apiece.
He has taken five or more wickets in an innings on three occasions, including twice in the sixth round match against Republic Bank St Catherine that helped Spartan complete a seven-wicket victory at Bayfield last Sunday.
