Wakenaam defeated a spirited Central Essequibo team by 27 runs to capture the Essequibo Cricket Board 40 over title on Sunday evening in Pomeroon.
Wakenaam won the toss and elected to bat in front of a large and colourful crowd and lost their first wicket at 19 when Imran Khan (2) was bowled by pacer Latchman Rohit. Ricardo Adams then joined opener Wayne Osborne and took the score to 50 before Adams departed for 24 (5×4). The islanders then lost Navishaul Pooran for 4 before Kemo Paul added 36 for the 4th wicket with Osborne who slammed two sixes and six fours in a topscore of 51. Paul who hit pacer Ronsford Beaton over cover for six stroked two fours and three maximums in 37. Oyono Sampson and Nokta Moses chipped in with 28 (3×6) and 20 (1×4 2×6) respectively as Wakenaam whose lower order contributed meaningfully to the score ended on a respectable 260-9 off their allocation of overs. Off spinner Kholraj Persaud claimed 2-22 of 8 overs and left arm spinner Herry Green took 2-28 from 7. Central in reply were off to a good start with Herrell Green and Parmesh Parashutam putting together 60 for the opening stand before the latter was caught off pacer Chandreka Ragnauth for 21. Yougeshwar Lall followed shortly when he was caught on the mid wicket boundary off Nokta Moses. Green in an effort to step up the scoring had his stumps knocked over by off spinner Nazeer Mohamed who also trapped Rohit leg before for 12 as Wakenaam fought back. Rovindra Parsram and Kholraj Persaud offered some resistance with 37 and 41 respectively but the lower found their opponent bowling too difficult to handle were bowled out for 233 in 39.5 overs. Imran Khan was the pick of the bowlers for the winners with 4-37 off 8 overs, while Mohamed finished with 2-44 off 8, and Moses 2-47 from 8. Osborne was given the man of the match award, while Wakenaam received the winning team trophy. Captain of the victorious Wakenaam team, Ricardo Adams said his boys stuck to the game plan and executed well. He was very pleased with the way his bowlers defended the total, and they were well backed up in the field. “Osborne knock was very important at the top of the order, it laid the foundation for a huge total and the rest of the batting followed suit. It was a total team effort.” He also stated that his team are now preparing for the next competition which is expected to start shortly.
