Kumar century carries Canada to first win

By Sports Desk November 14, 2019

A brisk half-century from Nitish Kumar pushed Canada to a massive 100-runs win over the Combined Colleges and Campuses at the Conaree Sports Club, in St Kitts, on Thursday.

The top-order batsman plundered 14 boundaries in 102 runs from 99 deliveries, as the Canadians scored their first win of the season.  Batting first, the Canadians suffered an early set back after losing opener Shereyas Movva, who made 2 runs, with just four runs on the board.

Kumar joined Mehta at the crease to, however, stage an immediate recovery as the pair put on 80 for the second wicket.  The partnership was broken when Mehta was run out.  Another big partnership between Shahid Ahmadzai (73) who joined Kumar to put on 103 for the third wicket put the Canadian in a strong position.  Kumar was eventually dismissed after being caught by Sadique Henry off the bowling of Yax Patel, leaving the team at 187 for 3.  With more further partnerships of note, however, the Canadians lost their last seven-wicket for 31 runs.

In reply, the Combined Colleges and Campuses (CCC) lost wickets at regular intervals with Jonathan Drakes putting up the most resistance with 40 runs from 52 balls.  Akeem Jordan was the next best with 37 from 50 runs.

Canadian bowlers Kadeem Sana and Kanwar Mann took two wickets each.
