Lewis, Bravo shine in final T&T warm-up
Port of Spain, Trinidad — Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo and Rayad Emrit warmed up for the Nagico Super50 with some good performances in the Trinidad and Tobago Red Force final day/night practice game at Queen’s Park Oval, on Sunday.
Lewis slammed six fours and five sixes in an unbeaten 77-ball 90 while Bravo hit four fours and three sixes in a 60-ball 62 to help T&T “A” reach 178 for two off 26.4 overs in reply to T&T “B” total of 175 all out off 39 overs.
The T&T Red Force skipper, Emrit, who had the most wickets in last year’s competition, starred with the ball on Sunday, grabbing five for 28 off eight overs to give T&T “A” the upper hand but Yannic Cariah (41), Kevon Cooper (45) and Marlon Richards (31) did enough to make the game interesting.
When T&T “A” batted, Lewis and Nicholas Sookdeosingh (17) put on 46 for the first wicket. Lewis then shared a 128-run stand for the second wicket to put his team on course for victory. T&T face the West Indies Under-19s in their first match of this year’s Super50 at Shaw Park in Tobago on Friday.
