Christian blasts century in USA Division one tourney
Guyanese wicketkeeper batsman Derwin Christian blasted a fine century as Universal Sports Store Caribbean Stars defeated Challengers by 100 runs in the United States of America (USA) division-one tournament recently.
Playing at Palm Coast, Orlando Florida on Sunday last, Christian slammed six fours and a similar number of sixes in a top score of 110 as the Caribbean Stars posted a respectable 213-4 off their allotted 40 overs. He was well supported by Sunil Deopersaud 39, Kadian Mc Kenzie 29 and Lindon Johnson 18.
Challengers in reply were bowled out for 113. Mark Pinnock led with 59 (2×6) while Mo Pariag made 29. The pair put together 80 for the opening stand but when Pariag was dismissed the rest of the batting crumbled, their resistance lasting 28 overs.
USA Under-19 player Sunil Deopersaud grabbed 5-13 off 7 overs while Michael Springer had 3-3 off 3 overs and Christian 2-28 from 7 overs.
