A first innings batting collapse by St. Leonard’s Boys gave Combermere the advantage on the first day of their three-day LIME Under-15 Championship final played at Wildey, St Michael today.
Combermere won the toss and elected to send St. Leonard’s Boys in to bat on a wicket which offered much assistance to both the spin and fast bowlers.
The Waterford lads then dismissed their rivals for 64 in 32.4 overs and responded with 149 for four in their allotted 35 overs.
St. Leonard’s Deswin Currency and Tremaine Harris opened the batting but never settled before fast bowler Joshua Cooke dismissed Harris for nine in the sixth over of the day. The procession to and from the middle never ceased after that.
Rackeem Hinds came in at number three to join Currency but the latter soon departed for 12, caught by Leniko Boucher off the bowling of Cooke.
This brought Damario Goodman to the wicket and the pair tried to steady things, but Hinds did not stick around
