FOUR-DAY: Perez solid after Harpy Eagles bundle CCC for 200

SUMMARY: Combined Campuses and Colleges 200 all out from 55.5 overs (Demario Richards 43, Romario Greaves 36, Avinash Mahabirsingh 23, Jediah Blades 22*, Amari Goodridge 22, Jarion Hoyte 21; Nial Smith 3-42, Veerasammy Permaul 3-51, Gudakesh Motie 2-40, Isai Thorne 2-45 ) v Guyana Harpy Eagles 114-1 from 28 overs ( Raymond Perez 61*, Kevlon Anderson 27*, Tagenarine Chanderpaul 12)


Guyana Harpy Eagles are in a solid position to press for victory in a must-win match against Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) in the final round of the West Indies Four-Day Championship at the Sir Frank Worrell Memorial Ground, Trinidad and Tobago.

Perez scored his maiden First-Class half-century to end the day on 61* as the Harpy Eagles trail CCC’s first innings total of 200 by 86 runs.

Tagenarine Chanderpaul was dismissed for 12, while Kevlon Anderson is alongside Perez on 27*.

Earlier, pacers Nial Smith and Isai Thorne rocked the students with early wickets, but a lower-order resistance led by Demario Richards (43) and Romario Greaves (36), along with twenties from the bowlers, pushed CCC to their eventual total.

Smith ended with 3-42 and Thorne 2-45 while Veerasammy Permaul (3-51) and Gudakesh Motie (2-40) also struck with the ball.

After four consecutive victories, the defending champions are in third, 2.8 points off leaders Windward Volcanoes.

Harpy Eagles made a surprise move to apparently drop all-rounder Ronaldo Alihmohamed for Akshaya Persaud

Alimohamed would have been the third pacer, adding value to the quest for fast-bowling points to pip the title.
