On Sunday—it was the fast bowler’s turn.Jacques extracted bounce from the wicket, which resulted in all three of his victims (Yogendra Singh (3), B. Bandoo (0) and Ershaad Ali (0)) edging behind.Although DCC proved to be the better side, UG, starting the day trailing by an innings and 207 runs, never tried to bat themselves in. Instead, many of their batsmen were guilty of flamboyant strokeplays, which made it easy for Barnwell to use his bowlers to pick them off.Almost half of the 117 runs reached or went over the boundary. Damion Vantull (14) was particularly aggressive with two big sixes, one of which reached onto the steps of the Queenstown Secondary School.Skipper Dwayne Dodson, who was run out, scored four fours in his 19. Also finishing with 19 was Keon Roberts. The opener scored three fours, while Pavindralall Persaud, who had scored 39 in the first innings, added 18 runs (2x4s).Jacques, who bowled four overs (two of which were maidens) finished with 3-4, while K. George and Orlando Giddings finished with two wickets each. The opening bowler, George, got the opening pair, while Giddings made inroads against the lower order.In total the second innings took just 29.4 overs.last_img
