Mohamed slams century as Eccles Beat Unity by 9-wkts
A fine century by Shaheed Mohamed guided Eccles Sports Club to a comfortable nine wicket victory over Unity Sports Club in a feature 25 overs match played last Sunday at Unity.
Opener Mohamed ended unbeaten on 102 and got support from Hemraj Garbarran who cracked a robust 91 not out to see their team home for the lost of one wicket in the 23 over, finishing on 208.
Anthony Carto removed Joel Dilshan early, but any hopes of a Unity victory were soon halted by Mohamed and Garbarran as the pair shared in an unbroken second wicket of 198. Carto had 1-39.
Earlier, Unity took first strike and posted 207-9 off their allotted overs. Shabaab Budhram was their leading batsman with 52 while Jagdesh Persaud supported with 34 and Naim Chand 27. Off spinner Johnny Azeez grabbed 4-19 and Kapildev Singh 2-40 for Eccles who received the winning team trophy. Unity took the runner up prize while Mohamed collected the best batsman and man of the match awards. Azeez was given the most outstanding bowler prize.
The game was sponsored by the Unitech Awning Company of Eccles.
