Young Warriors beat Albion by 6 wkts; to face RHT Gizmos & Gadgets in final
Young Warriors needed to pull out all the stops in search of victory against the youthful Albion cricket team in the second semi-final of the Peter Lewis Associated Construction Services Under-23 tournament played at the Cumberland ground, East Canje and organised by the Berbice Cricket Board.
Warriors eventually came out victors by six wickets and have earned a date with arch rival Rose Hall Town Gizmos & Gadgets in the final set for Sunday at the Area “H” ground.
Deciding to take first strike after winning the toss, Albion were given a rousing opening stand of 115 by the exciting Harrinarine Chattergoon and Surujnarine Kandasammy in 18 overs.
The dismissal of Surujnarine for 43, caught by Farouk Hussain off the bowling of left arm spinner Richard Ramdeen, followed closely by the fall of Chattergoon for a well played 54 (6 x 4, 2 x 6), led to a massive collapse as Albion lost their last eight wickets for a meager 57 runs.
Poor shot selection led to the demise of the Albion batsmen. From a position of 130-2 in the 22nd over they were bowled out for 187 in the 40th. Only Rajendra Dasrat was able to reach double figures of the remaining batsmen.
Ramdeen ended with figures of 3-21 from 8 overs, offspinner Farouk Hussain 2-3 from 3.5 and left arm pacer Davendra Ramoutar 2-41 offering excellent support.
In reply Young Warriors found themselves in deep trouble at 53-4 in the 12th over as Albion fought back.
Waheid Edwards was the first to go caught at first slip off left arm spinner S. Dwarka at 11-1 in the 2nd over and it soon became 14-2 one over later when Seon Hetmyer was also caught at slip off Harrinarine Chattergoon.
Skipper Richard Ramdeen was then run out for 19 at 38-3 and more problems came for Young Warriors when Farouk Hussain was caught at point off Chattergoon for 15 (53-4). Albion however let Young Warriors off the hook with some loose bowling from the supporting bowlers as Daryl Narine and Riaz Kassim put on 137 for the 5th wicket to take the home team to victory at 190-4 in the 31st over.
Narine was unbeaten on 73 (7 x 4, 1 x 6) and Kassim was on 65 with 9 boundaries when victory came. Chattergoon was Albion’s best bowler with 2-45 off his 10 overs.
