Combermere and Powergen Penal of Trinidad and Tobago remain the only unbeaten teams at the end of the fifth round of matches played yesterday in the Sir Garfield Sobers Schools International Cricket tournament.
Combermere easily beat defending champions Foundation School by seven wickets at the Windward grounds to dislodge the Christ Church school from its former joint leadership position.
The defending champions could manage only 139 in 31.4 overs thanks mainly to Joshua Drakes’ innings of 40. Dan Jordan and Keon Harding each bagged three wickets for Combermere. In reply Shane Proverbs (70) and Matthew Jones (45 not out) comfortably paced Combermere to 143 for 3 in 30 overs.
Powergen struggled to win their Zone B encounter at Kings’ Park after bowling out New Amsterdam for a modest 115 in 33 overs. Sam Roopnarine’s five wickets for 18 runs almost proved futile as Powergen scraped to 116 for 7 in 31 overs thanks mainly to Dillon Mohammed’s knock of 45 not out.
Other teams in winners row were Vishnu Boys, Fatima and Choiseul over Christianburg, Solihull and Presentation College, while in Zone B, Pinelands, Queen’s Park Club and BCL Juniors won over Antigua, Dominica and St. Leonard’s respectively.
