Savitir, Whyte propel Satro into final
A fine half century by Hukumchand Savitir and a four wicket haul by left arm spinner Trevor Whyte propelled Satro into the final of the Phyllis Carter Memorial Twenty\20 cricket competition in Leguan.
Satro earned the right to play Young Warriors who drew the bye in the final by defeating Falcons by 29 runs in the lone semi final last Sunday. Batting first after winning the toss at Enterprise, Satro were led by Savitir who top scored with 58 and Shivindra Hemraj with 23 as they posted 174 before being bowled out in 19.5 overs. Extras contributed 28; Rick Stephen claimed 4-20, Imran Younis 2-24 and Navindra Singh 2-25.
Falcons began their reply in fine fashion with Kevin Chetram 40, Younis 37 and Raydon Austin 27 taking the attack to the bowlers, but the rest of the batsmen failed to lend support only managing 23 among them while extras played its part with 22. Falcons were bowled out for 145 in 19.1 overs. Whyte captured 4-20 while Saif Razack and Hemraj Persaud had 2-18 apiece.
The final will be played on Saturday at the said venue.
