Winning Central Zone team before their clash against defending champs South.

Central Zone defeated defending champions South Zone by 65 runs in the opening match of the 2018 Shell Interzone series at Syne Village in Penal on Wednesday.

Batting first, Central slipped to 87 for seven before finally reaching 131 all out. Leading the way was Ronnielstar Perreira who scored 30. The pick of the South bowlers were Avalon Changoor three for 39, Kendal Poochoon two for 15 and Aaron Amrow two for two. Left the relatively simple task of getting 132, South fell under the Central spinners trap and was all out for 66. Perreira returned with the ball to create havoc in claiming five wickets for just 13 runs, to give Central the win.

In the other Group A clash, North got the better of East at St. Mary’s ground on Serpentine Road. Sachin Emrit 29 and Christian Mack 29 not out, took North to 156 all out after taking first strike. Navindra Ramlal bowling for East was the best of attack taking three for 19. Ramlal then top scored with 17, but Joshua David proved too much taking four for 15 to undermine the opponents top order, as they folded for 89.

In Group B, South East enjoyed a good game against North East, winning the match by 123 runs at Sancho Road in St. Julien. Skipper Khaleem Mohammed with 43 and Mario King 31, took them to 198 all out. They proved way beyond the North East side, as they made just 75 in reply. R Chase was the best of the bowlers with four wickets for 20 runs.
