Mar 31, 2013 Sports Comments Off on Fireworks expected as DT/Chow Pow 10/10 reaches semi-finals
The DT/Chow Pow 10/10 challenge series has reached the semifinals in both the male and female categories and will be played on next Sunday 7th April at the Uitvlugt Community Centre ground with the finals expected the following Sunday 14th April.
The teams through to this stage in the male category are: Wolf’s Warriors; Speedboat XI; Recharge XI; Superstars XI and in the female category 4R XI; Mike’s Wellwoman; Trophy Stall Angels and Regal Champs.
The male category will see Wolf’s Warriors coming up against Speedboat XI and this match will be exciting as the teams review their rivalry.
Wolf’s Warriors have taken care of superstars XI, Farm XI, Trophy Stall, Young Guns and Omesh XI to top group A. They will depend heavily on opening bat Riaz Karim who has been in fantastic form and has been scoring heavily to date with several half centuries. Azad Azeez is another batsman that Speedboat will be wary of as he has been in top form and is yet to be dismissed so far. Skipper Amrit “Rocky” Jairam, who has not made an impact in this tournament and has big game temperament, will be hoping to guide his team to a big score beyond the reach of the opposition.
In the bowling, Diaram Persaud and Devenand Persaud will shoulder the responsibilities and have been bowling out opposition teams quite easily.
On the other hand Speedboat who defeated the highly favoured Regal XI in their last preliminary match and has a large following will hope to continue where they left off and will depend heavily on the technically correct Greg Singh and the exciting Safraz Esau to score heavily. The bowling will be in the hands of Esau who is a top all rounder in the team and country.
In the other semi, giant killers Recharge XI, who topped Group B and hails from Parika will be hoping to continue the good work they started and make a name for themselves as one of the top teams in the country and will depend heavily Komal Singh, who can belt it a long way and has been consistently in the forties quickly. Ramdial Shamlall will shoulder the bowling as he has been very economical so far.
Superstars XI, who have going about their business quite efficiently, will depend heavily on Marvin Bobb who made the Guyana XI against Canada Last year and who is a genuine all rounder in the top bracket and will have to play very good to take them to victory.
In the female category the likes of Shemaine Campbell and Ruth George will make 4R Lioness XI firm favorites to score heavily to take the game away from the opposition. Trophy Stall Angels will also hope to continue their winning ways by getting past the opposition. The team is well rounded and everyone contributes. On the other hand Mike’s Wellwoman will want to dominate as they have very experienced players who have represented Demerara at the hard ball level. Regal Champs are the youngest lot and have very talented players who can upstage their more seasoned counterparts.
The tournament has so far been attracting large crowds. At the venues lots of giveaways and off field games have left the spectators in awe and wanting more which will increase at the semis.
The finals on the 14th at Uitvlugt will feature entertainment featuring several top artistes including Hitman, Sally Sangram among others.

It is being sponsored by Digital Technology; Jailing; Giftland office Max; Elegance Jewllery and Pawnshop; NTN 89.1 RADIO and Banks DIH.
