Trinidad Express article.

Port of Spain, Trinidad - Bryan Boodram top-scored with 75 to lead defending champions Central to an easy 90-run win over South West in the opening round of the BG T&T Under-17 InterZone 50-over competition at Happy Hill Recreation Ground in Rousillac, yesterday.

Boodram, who was part of the Trinidad and Tobago Under-19 team last year, helped Central post a competitive 276 for nine off 45 overs before pacer Jarlarnie Seales grabbed four for 37 to help restrict South West to 186 for nine.

In other results yesterday, East, led by a good all-round performance from Nathanial McDavid, beat Tobago by 186 runs at Shaw Park in Tobago.

McDavid hit 44 as East posted 259 for nine in their 50 overs. Also getting runs were Keagan Simmons who top-scored with 45 and Aaron Maniram who got 30. 

In reply, Tobago were all out for 73 in just 20 overs as left-arm pacer Jerome Gibbs snatched four for 26. McDavid chipped in with two wickets for nine runs.

North beat North East by five wickets in the other game yesterday.

The South East versus South match was rescheduled due to the funeral of former T&T Under-19 pacer Tevin Robertson. 

That match will be played today at Yorkshire Ground in Barrackpore.
