He then anchored the Lochmaben batting in scoring 14 and together with Matthew Sookoo 12, took their school to an impressive 98 for one.
In another quarter-final clash, St. Joseph TML fell by 10 wickets to a focused Preysal Government. St. Joseph TML batted first, but found runs almost impossible to come by. They were routed for 39. Preysal then responded with 40 without loss as David Kissoondath with 17 showed his hand.
