Foundation crawl to 137
Carlos Maynard compiled a defiant unbeaten 64, as defending champions Caribbean Alliance/Akobah Gardens Foundation crawled to 137 for six from 57 overs on the opening day of the Goddard’s Enterprises School’s three-day final against Easy Bake St Leonard’s Boys’ yesterday.
Foundation’s line-up included as many as six players, including Maynard, who represented them in the First Division championship that ended in October.
Electing to bat, they lost openers Micah Howard and Mario Hinds with the total on nine.
Howard lost his off-stump in the day’s fourth over, to a delivery that cut back from fast bowler Chemar Holder. In the next over, swing bowler Shakeel Turney bowled Hinds off-stump as he essayed a drive.
Shaquan Carrington and national under-19 skipper Joshua Drakes, who took over the captaincy, staged a mini recovery adding 38 for the third wicket until left-arm spinner Deswin Currency broke through with his fourth ball when Drakes was caught at mid-on for 12.
