Kingston Cricket Club (Kingston CC) is the only team in this year’s Kingston Wharves Under 15 Cricket Competition that has recorded three wins at the end of round three of the preliminary round of matches.
The Kingston Wharves Under 15 Cricket Competition is celebrating thirty years of existence. It saw a major expansion in 2018 when it became a twenty-team competition with the inclusion of six selected clubs such as Kingston Cricket Club.
The last two rounds of the competition has been affected by rain across the island, with several matches ending in ‘rain, no result. This has not affected Kingston CC.
In round three on Wednesday Kingston CC defeated the defending champion Lucas by eighty-two runs. The match which was played at Sabina Park – the home ground of Kingston CC saw Lucas winning the toss and inviting the home team to take first strike.
Kingston CC started shakily losing its first three wickets for just fifteen runs on the board. The inning steadied with a forty-two run partnership for the fifth wicket then lost wickets at regular intervals to close the inning at one hundred and twenty-five all out. The top scorers were Brian Charles Largie and Keanu Henry who both made sixteen runs each. The bulk of the wickets went to Maleek Miller, Justin Adlam and Courtney Hanchard who got two wickets each.
Lucas who is without its outstanding captain Jordan Johnson, replied with a paltry forty-three all out. Courtney Hanchard – ten, was the only player to get into double figures. The pick of the bowlers was Nicoli McKenzie who bagged five wickets for five runs in 3.2 overs.
Lucas currently has one win after defeating St. Thomas when the competition was launched back in late July. Lucas will face Portland in round four next week Thursday. It will be a must win match if it is to stay in contention for a place in the quarter finals and stave off Kensington which has two wins to date.
Three other teams – St. Ann, Kingston & St. Andrew Cricket Association and Manchester have won two matches and could force a place in the quarter-finals as well.
