Thurton hits another century
Central batsman Crystian
Thurton continues to turn
heads in his direction as he
scored another century in
the Shell Under-19 Interzone
tournament, though his side
was still beaten by East Zone
in the semis.
Leonardo Francis hit a stroke-
filled 86 and Kirstan Kallichar-
ran made a boundary-studded
66 to give East the win and
upstage Thurton who scored a
century in the last match against
Electing to bat first at the
National Cricket Centre (NCC)
after winning the toss, Central
made 251 all out in 49.5 overs in
brilliant sunshine, but defending
champions East rained on their
parade with a clinical batting
display to reach 253 for seven
wickets in 47.1 overs.
Thurton, who notched 103
when Central beat South in the
third round of the competition
last week, was again in brilliant
form as he made 106 off 129
balls with ten boundaries and
two maximums in 171 minutes
of exhilarating batting.
He got good support from
opener Matthew Patrick who
got 48 with six fours, while Sai-
ba Batoosingh chipped in with
36 including four boundaries.
Thurton also featured in two big
partnerships with Patrick worth
108 runs for the third wicket,
and 80 with Batoosingh for the
Most outstanding bowler for
East Zone was Sachin Seechar-
ran who had an excellent spell of
five overs with one maiden while
claiming three wickets for 22
runs. Te-Shawn Alleyne snared
two for 40 in six overs and one
ball, while Renaldo Forrester and
Aaron Mairam took one apiece.
With runs on the board, Cen-
tral would have fancied their
chances, but poor fielding and
intermittent loose bowling
proved their undoing as Francis
crashed three boundaries and
two maximums to fall just 14
short of a well-deserved century.
Batting prodigy Kallicharan,
just back from a West Indies
Under-19 specialised coaching
programme, played a significant
role in the East win with nine
boundaries in his knock, while
Seecharan contributed 29 and
Leonardo Julien made 25 in the
For Central, Emilo Gopaul
took two for 25; Kyle Madoo
grabbed two for 26; while Jayden
Seales, Batoosingh and James
Duncan had one each.

of the second semi-final be-
tween South-East and Tobago,

Inter Zone tournament will be

T&T's Inalsingh takes
charge of WBA title fight
T&T's top woman boxing
official Shivana Inalsingh was
incharge of the WBA Light heav-
yweight Interim clash that fea-
tured champion Russian Dimi-
try Bivol and American Samuel
Clarkson at the MGM National
Harbor, Maryland, USA on Sat-
The event which aired on
Showtime, showed Bivol win-
ning by TKO after 1 minute and
40 seconds in the fourth round.
Bivol who takes his record to
10-0-0, outperformed a more
experienced Clarkson (19-3-0),
knocking him down three times
in the first round.
Inalsingh, the appointed WBA
Supervisor said after the bout,
"This could have easily been a
first round TKO for Bivol, how-
ever since the Maryland Com-
mission and I, as the represent-
ative of the WBA, agreed to use
the ABC Rules in this event, the
Three (3) Knock Down WBA rule
was not in effect and the fight
was allowed to continue."
Inalsingh, an active member
of the Association of Ringside
Physicians and a Clinical Inte-
grative Reflexologist said "I had
a professional team of Ringside
Officials to work with. My ex-
pectations were clear and things
went smoothly. As you can im-
agine, safety of the boxer is a ma-
jor concern, so in the pre-fight
briefing, the Referee and I took
the time to review some signs of
distress and the assessments to
be done. The Referee, Harvey
Dock made a timely call when
he stopped the fight."
Inalsingh, the daughter of
famed local boxing official Dr
Calvin Inalsingh, is the first
woman in the Caribbean to Su-
pervise a WBA World Title event
and is Director of the WBA Fe-
male Championship Committee.
