January 30, 2017


Reigning champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force produced a limp performance as they slumped to a five-wicket defeat in their second game of the Regional Super50 here yesterday.

Sent in by Kent at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium, Red Force could only muster 193 all out off 48.3 overs, with all-rounder Roshon Primus top-scoring with 60, opener Kyle Hope getting 43 and Nicholas Alexis, 28.

Seamer Ivan Thomas was the best bowler with four for 51 while left-arm spinner Imran Qayyum (2-33) and veteran pacer Darren Stevens (2-39) supported with two wickets apiece.

Kent were never threatened in reply as opener Sean Dickson struck a brisk 56 off 67 deliveries to inspire the English County side to victory in the 37th over.

The right-hander struck seven fours and posted 85 for the first wicket with Daniel Bell-Drummond whose 35 came from 60 with four fours.
