Guillen makes claim with two centuries

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad - Opening batsman Justin Guillen has made a strong case for inclusion on the Trinidad and Tobago squad for the upcoming first class season by scoring back-to-back centuries in national trials here at the weekend.

Guillen scored 115 runs laced with a number of well timed strokes as his side made a first innings score of 277 all out against Amit Jaggernauth XI.

The left handed batsman returned to slam 130 as his team reached 317 for 9.

Guillen’s second innings century from 169 balls included 18 fours and one six.

Media reports from Port-of-Spain say the 27-year-old cricketer has been in good form lately and he has been able to get other batsmen to bat around him in the weekend trials.

Guillen’s first class debut for Trinidad and Tobago was against Barbados in 2009.

His last first class assignment was for West Indies A against India in St.Vincent and the Grenadines last year.

Trinidad and Tobago will play Windward Islands in their opening match of the regional four day competition from February 15 at the Arnos Vale playing field in Kingstown.
