Moseley, Hemraj star for Carlton
A?disciplined century by Shayne Moseley complemented a four-wicket haul from Chanderpaul Hemraj to lead Carton to a five-wicket victory over Counterpoint Wanderers in the fourth round of the Sagicor General Super Cup 50-over cricket competition yesterday.
Moseley smashed six sixes and two fours as the home side overhauled a competitive Wanderers score of 230 off 49 overs.
He was the main architect behind Carlton’s reply of 232 for five off 48.1 overs before driving a catch to Kemar Craigg at extra cover off Gary Belle, shortly before victory was achieved.
The tall left-hander started slowly, playing the supporting role in a second-wicket partnership of 71 with Vonrick Nurse, who stroked four sixes and two fours in a fluent knock of 51 off 50 deliveries.
Nurse, dropped by wicketkeeper Renaldo Arthur on three and 42, was eventually caught by Arthur off Ian Bradshaw, leaving Caarlton 112 for two after 24 overs.
Moseley was then involved in two run outs that gifted a couple of wickets to Wanderers but played with resolve and controlled aggression to take his team within sight of victory.
He was especially strong on the leg side, with two of his sixes landing backward of square, three over midwicket and one over long on that took him to 95.
Earlier, Hemraj took four for 29 to help his side deny Wanderers a more formidable total.
Diego Stuart hit his second half-century of the weekend to topscore with 52 off 66 balls while Bradshaw was the most aggressive of the batsmen, counting a six and five fours in 51 off 42 balls.
Kraigg Brathwaite struck two sixes and two fours in 32 off 49 deliveries but failed to take the field during Carlton’s innings, reportedly because of an injured hand.
Jason Holder, who had earlier scored 33, limped off the field after sending down two deliveries, leaving Wanderers short of a key bowler.
