Maloney, Hunte star for ASCO


Desron Maloney celebrated his call up to the St Vincent and the Grenadines T/20 team with a good all-round effort. This, along with the bowling of left arm spinner Andre Hunte, laid the platform for ASCO’ s first innings win over Police One in the National Lotteries Authority Premier Division at the Arnos Vale Playing Field last weekend.{{more}}

Police One’s reply stopped at 147. Anthony Sutherland topscored with 57. Andre Hunte was the headliner with 7 for 42 and Desron Maloney took 3 for 27.

Maloney then hit another half century, making 53 in ASCO’s second innings of 126. Oswald Soleyn contributed 31, as Calvin Glasgow was the pick of the bowlers with 5 for 19.
