An excellent opening partnership of 101
between Adrian Ali and Ryan Ramdass was
not enough for Clarke Road to steal first
innings points against Queen s Park in a rain-
affected weekend in the National Cricket
League two-day competition.
Resuming day two on 160/5, the Parkites
declared on 201/6 at 1.45 pm in an attempt
to give thier bowlers ample time to bowl out
Clarke Road. At 101 without loss, Queen s Park
may have regretted their decision to declare.
However, Clarke Road then lost 10 wickets
for 97 runs, as they were dismissed for 198
to hand the Parkites first innings points. Three
wickets apiece from West Indies fast bowler
Shannon Gabriel (3/65) and spin bowler Amit
Jaggernauth (3/52) did the trick.
Over at California, Dane Teelucksingh
snatched 6/60 to give Caldrac first innings
points against Aranguez. Teelucksingh s left-
arm unorthodox helped dismiss Aranguez for
136. Ray Campbell top-scored with 52, while
Kellon Carmichael pitched in with 35. This
gave Caldrac enough time to get first innings
points, getting to 150/5 at the close. Antonio
Aziz struck 43 and Franklyn Rouse made 28.
Carmichael was the best bowler for Aranguez,
Not a ball was bowled in the other four
matches carded for this weekend. Due to per-
sistent rainfall, matches between Esmeralda
and Moosai, Diamond versus Bamboo and the
Merry Boys/Comets encounter never got going.
Also at Syne Village, Powergen picked up
24 points without a ball being bowled. Wan-
derers have forfeited all their matches this
season and failed to show up yet again.

CHENNAI---Dwayne Bravo s Chennai Super
Kings outlasted Sunil Narine s Kolkata Knight
Riders, to jump to the top of the Indian Pre-
mier League here yesterday.
Sent in, Super Kings piled up 200 for three
at MA Chidambaram Stadium and then
superbly defended, restricting Knight Riders
to 186 for four, to win by 14 runs.
They lead the standings with 14 points from
nine matches, with Chris Gayle s Royal Chal-
lengers Bangalore two points back in second.
Knight Riders, the defending champions,

Narine, the mystery West Indies off-spinner,
could do little as Australian Mike Hussey
slammed 95 from 59 balls to propel Super
Kings, while Suresh Raina added 44 from 25
The Trinidadian eventually claimed Hussey
to a catch in the deep in the 16th over, to
finish with one for 35 from his four overs of
In reply, Knight Riders got 93 off 61 deliveries
from opener Manvinder Bisla and a breezy
unbeaten 32 off 22 balls from Eoin Morgan,
but fell short in the end.
Bravo, Narine s T&T and West Indies team-
mate, earned one for 37 from his four overs
of medium pace. (CMC)
NEW DELHI---Legendary West Indies
batsman Sir Vivian Richards says watching
Indian stroke-maker Virat Kohli has
brought back memories of himself during
his illustrious career.
"I love watching Virat Kohli bat. He looks
to me like an individual of my own heart.
I love his aggression and serious passion
that I used to have. He reminds me of
myself," said Sir Viv, who is an advisor to
Delhi Daredevils during the current Indian
"He is an individual who doesn t back
off from confrontation, someone who can
stand his ground under pressure."
Sir Viv also pointed to Kohli s fielding,
noting that it also mirrored his batting.
"He is a livewire unlike some fielders,
who would just dig a hole and dive in it
rather than dive to stop the ball...," Sir Viv
pointed out. "I love that as you can t teach
these instinctive aspects."
The 24-year-old Kohli has already scored
334 runs in nine innings for Royal Chal-
lengers Banglalore, including three half-
centuries and a best of 93 not out against
He averages 41 from 18 Tests and nearly
50 from his 98 One-Day Internationals.

Caledonia AIA s Concacaf Champions
League hopes were last evening kept alive
as the champion of last year s competition
responded to an opening-round loss to
secure full points in a 3-1 victory over
Antigua Barracuda in Group One of the
Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifying
The crucial win kept Caledonia in con-
tention for either the first or runner-up spot
in the three-team group, with three points
after two matches played. W Connection
played one match thus far, securing a 4-0
triumph over Caledonia, on Friday.
The match took place at the Ato Boldon
Stadium, Couva, with forward Jamal Gay
(21st) and national midfielder Densill
Theobald (34th) handing the Morvant-
Laventille-based outfit a 2-0 lead at half
time, even as the local club was made to
hold back after early pressure from the USL
Barracuda finally found a deserved
response in the 88th minute through Bermu-
dan midfielder Andre Manders which lasted
just moments, as yet another Soca Warriors
player, Keyon Edwards put the match to rest
with an effort in added time.
Caledonia now sits in second, on three
points as with W Connection, with the two
teams separated by goal-difference (two
goals). Up next, W Connection will face
Barracuda tomorrow at the same venue,
from 6 pm. A win will both secure W Con-
nection, holder of the CFU Club Champi-
onship title, an automatic berth into the
Concacaf Champions League, and Caledonia
the play-off spot.
The runner-up will play the second placed
team in Group Two, which is being contested
in Jamaica. The winner of the play-off will
meet on a "home and away" basis, with the
aggregate winner taking the third and final
spot up for grabs. ---Andrew Gioanetti

remain alive in Concacaf qualifiers
