Reifer hunting a century in Under-19 Trial
Opener Nico Reifer will be looking to make a century after starring with the bat on a low-scoring opening day, dominated by bowlers in the first Barbados Under-19 three-day cricket trial match at Queen’s Park on Saturday.
Reifer was unbeaten on 81 as Shian Brathwaite closed the day on 144 for four, replying to a modest total of 158 by Nyeem Young’s team. Reifer has so far hit 11 fours and a six off 132 balls in 169 minutes at the crease.
The match continues on Sunday.
Nyeem Young’s Team 158 in 42.3 overs (Kilano Brathwaite 41, Ajani Waterman 28, Ryshon Williams 16, Jadan Jones 14, Naje Bishop 12, Jonlhi Jordan 12, Kadeem Alleyne 11: Ramon Simmons 3-28, Shermar Persaud 3-45, Zidane Clarke 2-17, Shakkae Marshall 2-23). Shian Brathwaite’s Team 144-4 in 45 overs (Nico Reifer 81 n.o, Damel Evelyn 28, Shian Brathwaite 17, Azan Holligan 13 n.o.; Camarie Boyce 2-20, Jaden Edmund 2-29). (EZS)
