DCB over 40 tourney…West Dem Mavericks bow out after rain ruins first semi
West Bank Demerara Mavericks were knocked out of the Demerara Cricket Board\Raj Singh Insurance Brokers\Trophy Stall over 40 twenty overs competition after their semifinal game against East Coast Demerara Bulls, which was set for the Lusignan Community Centre ground, was rained out without a ball being bowled yesterday.
The second semifinal is schedule for tomorrow at the Georgetown Cricket Club ground, Bourda between West Coast Demerara Seals and East Coast Demerara Tigers. However if the game is rained out the Tigers will go through to the final by virtue of gaining more points from the preliminary round games.
Meanwhile, Mavericks wicketkeeper Fizul Haniff said that he is disappointed that the game was rained out. He feels that Mavericks is one of the better teams in the tournament. “Our players did well in the preliminary round and i think we could have won this competition, but then some of our games were affected by the rain which possibly deprived us of some valuable points,” he added.
