PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, Dec. 20, (AP).

RAIN continues to plague Trinidad's preparations for the forthcoming Shell Shield Regional Tournament of the Caribbean.

The first trial match was badly hit two weeks ago and hopes for form-finding cricket were dashed this weekend when showers limited play to six hours in the planned two day game at Queen's Park Oval.

Gregory Asgarali, son of former West Indies Batsman Nyron Asgarali, hit 68 and Oscar Durity, who played for the Trinidad national squad in the recent CONCACAF football finals, struck 47 for Joey Carew's XI against Charlie Davis side. Carew scored only eight of his team's 188 runs before being cleanbowled by Davis.
