A fine allround performance by Vijay Surajpaul guided Golden Fleece to a 37 run victory over Rising Star when the final of the Edward Skeete and family Twenty\20 competition was contested last Sunday in South Essequibo.
Surujpaul belted four fours and a similar number of sixes in a top score of 65 and got support from Patrick Rooplall 23 (2×6), Gewan Singh 24 (3×4), and Akenauth Persaud 21 (1×4, 1×6) as Golden Fleece rattled up 166-7 off 20 overs in front of a fair size crowd at the New Opportunity Corps ground. Off spinner Ian Gonsalves snared 3-48 off 4 overs, while Rovin Dusraj took 2-23 off 4 and Royan Federicks 2-23 from 3.
Rooplall then returned to capture 4-16 off 3.2 overs, while Surajpaul picked up 3-32 off 4, and Raj Parbattie 2-29 from 4 as Rising Star were restricted to 129 in 19.2 overs in reply. Jagdesh Dindyal was their leading scorer with 39 (3×4, 3×6), while Federicks made 26(3×4,1×6), and Kayman Lakan 23(3×4).
Surajpaul was given the man of the match award, while both teams received trophies and cash prizes for their efforts.
Speaking at the presentation ceremony Edward Skeete said he will continue to work with South Committee for the development of the game and congratulated the winners. Linden Daniels, Secretary of the South Essequibo Cricket Committee urged the clubs to maintain a healthy structure so that players cannot move from one to another as they please. He said the competition was well organized and thanked the sponsor.
