Shemaine Campbell lashed an unbeaten 123 to pilot Berbice to an emphatic victory over Essequibo after the latter team won the toss and invited the former to take first strike,
when play in the Senior Inter-County Female 50 overs cricket competition continued at the Police Sports Club Ground, yesterday morning.
Campbell was supported with resilient knocks from Katana Mentore and Tremayne Smartt who contributed 59 and 41, respectively as Berbice made 276-3 off their 50 overs.
Batting second, Essequibo were routed for 85, restricted by accurate bowling and superb fielding by the Berbicians. The extras (51) were responsible for most of the runs allotted to the Essequibians. Kumanne Persaud took 2-51 for the winners off her 8 overs while Olivia O’Selmo captured a solitary wicket for 29 off her 6 overs.
Wafia Samod opened the innings for Essequibo and was sent back, bowled Erva Giddings for a duck. Wazeeda Bacchus came in, contributed 3 runs and was sent back, bowled by S. Munroe. Maxine Williams was dismissed for a solitary single by Campbell moments before K. Mentore bowled Olivia O’Selmo.
Kumanne Persaud scored a dogged top score of 17 but was eventually dismissed, bowled by Nikita Toney. Captain Altia Newark was bowled by S. Campbell for 13 before Shaneigh Calvan was sent back, caught Mentore, bowled Toney. She made 1. Jessica Gonsalves (4), Venita Sewsarran (0), Lovern Spencer (4) and Cassia Mantoos (0) were the other batters to fall cheaply.
The tournament started last Friday with Demerara defeating Berbice by 5 wickets. Berbice were bowled out for 71 runs while Demerara responded with 72 from just 5 overs.
Play continues tomorrow with Essequibo tackling Demerara at the Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary.
