Antony Adams bags match-figures of 6-74 in Trinidad


Overlooked for Guyana Harpy Eagles’ duties in the first two rounds of the West Indies Four-Day Championship, left-arm spinner Antony Adams is making an impact in Trinidad and Tobago.

Playing for PowerGen Penal Sports Club in Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board’s (TTCB) Premiership I Three-Day tournament, Adams picked up 5-30 from 17.4 overs in the first innings to end with match-figures of 6-74 from 28.4 overs, inclusive of 11 maidens against Clarke Road United at the weekend.

He also supported with 14 from 37 balls in PowerGen’s first innings of 251 all out from 79 overs.

Ewart Nicholson (60) and Cephas Cooper (59) along with Navin Bidiasee (45) and Daniel Williams (44) were the main scorers for the PowerGen unit.

Led by Adams and Ansil Bhagan (5-41), Clarke Road was bundled out for 91 from 35.4 overs as no batsman got to 20.

Batting a second time, Clarke Road reached 161-4 from 44 overs with Adams taking 1-44 from 11 overs and Nicholas Sookdeosingh leading the response with an unbeaten 101 (131 balls; 12x4s; 4x6s).

Speaking to News Room Sport on Monday, Adams was overjoyed with his performance and hopes he can be consistent for this team.

He expressed thanks to former Harpy Eagles’ Head Coach, Esuan Crandon for facilitating his stint with the Trinidad club, as he looks to press a case for national recall when the Regional Four-Day Championship resumes on March 15 all the remaining three rounds will be hosted in the twin-island republic.

Adams is currently part of the Guyana Harpy Eagles’ reserve list for the first two rounds of the Four-Day Championship.

Batsman Kevlon Anderson is another Guyanese who is in Trinidad, playing for Preysal Cricket Club.
