A hostile spell of bowling by Banks DIH medium pace bowler Jermaine Martins in which he took a hat-trick in one over, sent Correia Group of Companies All Stars team crashing to defeat as the Beverage giants recorded their third victory in as many matches in their 20-over Tape Ball cricket match Friday evening at Thirst Park.
Martins dislodged Correia’s middle order as they were bowled out for 85 chasing 181 for 7 made by Banks DIH batting first.
The home side sent into bat, were restricted in the first 10 overs of play by consistent bowling by Correia’s strike bowlers Shawn Williams (3 for 30) and Travis Reid (2 for 39) but they managed to push the scoring in the last five overs to reach 181 for 7 off the allotted 20 overs.
Leading the batting for Banks DIH was Seon Simpson with an aggressive 46 and he received valuable support from Satesh Harrinandan with 36, while Dillon Cox and Marvin Belle made 27 each.
Correia were in early trouble against Banks pace attack with only Reid with a sturdy 24 and Warren Oudkerk 17 offering any resistance. Martins kept them on the ropes when he disposed of the three batsmen including Captain Thakurdial Rampersaud in successive deliveries.
Also in top bowling form for the home team were Yugesh Kissoon and Devon October with both ending on figures of 3 for 20.
Martins was named man-of-the-match for his effort, while Banks captain Otis George received trophies donated by Correia Group of Companies and presented by Andre Farinha who served as manager of the Correira team.
