EBDCA/Sarjoo Memorial T20 …Nandy Park beat Farm
Nandy Park defeated Farm by three wickets when play in the East Bank Demerara Cricket Association (EBDCA) \ Neville Sarjoo Memorial T20 tournament continued yesterday at the Demerara Cricket Club.
Farm batted first and scored 142-3 off their allocation of 20 overs. Ricky Debydial laid the foundation for a respectable total at the top of the order with an even half century which contained five sixes and two fours.
However, tidy bowling by Nandy Park spinners halted the scoring somewhat before Arif Bacchus smashed 29 with three fours; he received support from Abdool Salim with 19 and Shivram Persaud 16 towards the end of the innings.
Christopher Silva and Rohan Sarjoo claimed one wicket each. Nandy Park replied with 143-7 in 18.5 overs. Their chase got off to a bad start with the loss of two early wickets but Andy Persaud and Kumar Tuknauth featured in a third wicket stand of 45 to steady the chase.
Persaud belted two sixes and six fours in a top score of 37 while Kumar Tuknauth was dismissed for 19. Farm managed to pick a few more quick wickets before Sarjoo and Narine Dhanraj with 14 apiece and saw their team to safety. Arif Bacchus captured 2-25 and Shivram Persaud 2-27.
Diamond failed to turn up for their game against Combined United at 09:30hrs handing the latter a walk over.
