Kares Engineering /Bushy Park sawmills T10Tapeball Cricket Competition
After producing efficient performances in their respective semi-final matches, St. Rose’s High (Boys) and L’Aventure (Girls) should start as favourites when the finals of the Schools categories in the inaugural Kares Engineering /Bushy Park Sawmills Ten 10 Tapeball Cricket Competition climaxes tomorrow, at the National Stadium.
In the Boys Division, St. Rose’s High come up against a determined J.C. Chandisingh Comprehensive, while L’Aventure will
look to repel the challenge of IPE Diva’s XI in what many observers say is too close to predict a winner.
In their semi-final clash, St. Rose’s High, a school with a proud history of doing well at the junior level, they easily disposed of an outclassed Charity Secondary winning that game by 32 runs, while J.C. Chandisingh Comprehensive of Berbice beat their more favoured counterparts New Amsterdam Technical Institute (NATI) convincingly by 8 wickets in a classy display.
However, they might find the St. Rose’s unit a far more balanced and formidable opponent with Akash Rahim and D. Mohamed among those expected to lead their charge for top honours.
On the other hand, J.C. Chandisingh has gone about their business in a quite low-keyed manner, but their win against NATI proved to everyone that they should not be underestimated.
The strength of the team is their batting which is anticipated to be led by Imran Islamadeen and Shilandra Shameer, while Karran Singh is expected to lead the bowling attack.
In the Girls Division, L’Aventure’s little queen Satywattie Sugrim, who snared 6-0 including a hat-trick in their emphatic 10-wicket victory over Shivita Business School surely will be their trump card if they are to restrict IPE Diva’s XI to a modest total. She should receive support from M. Alfred, while Tishana Douglas, who smashed an impressive 30 against Corentyne Comprehensive, is expected to lead them in the batting department.
IPE Diva’s XI, who drew a bye to the final, also looked a solid team in their quarter-final clash against San Souci.
Janel Johnson seemed to be a top player and she should lead
the quest for runs whenever they bat, but the entire contest should be a close and interesting affair with fans expected to benefit from a good showing by both teams.
Meanwhile, the Organisers have indicated that tickets for the ‘giga’ concert deemed Caribbean Bacchanal that is expected to feature Grammy winner Jamaican Shaggy, Peter Ram, Hunter, Rayvon, Rikki Jai, Melobugz Band of Trinidad and Tobago and a host of local artistes are going fast.
They are advising that fans get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.
Tickets to the cricket cost $1,000, while those for the cricket and concert cost $3,000 and VIP $5,000.
