Mar 31, 2013 Sports Comments Off on Regional 4 day tourney…Fudadin rescues Guyana with timely half century
By Zaheer Mohamed
A patient half century by left hander Assad Fudadin ensured Guyana closed day one of the sixth round of the Regional 4 day tournament against Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) in a comfortable position at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence yesterday.
The host were 225 for seven with Anthony Bramble on 37 not out after they were inserted by the visitors on a track which looks good for batting. Fudadin and debutant Bramble shared in a sixth wicket stand of 95 after the Guyanese were pegged back by consistent bowling by CCC.
Fudadin anchored the Guyanese innings with a patient 87 before he fell to off spinner Nekoli Parris just before the scheduled close of play. His innings lasted for 263 balls and contained seven fours and a six.
Guyana openers Rajendra Chandrika and Fudadin struggle earlier, before fast bowler Kesrick Williams dismissed Chandrika caught at the wicket for 4 with the score on 6.
Fudadin and Leon Johnson then put together 36 for the second wicket, but medium pacer Raymon Reifer removed the confident looking Johnson for 24.
Off spinner Ryan Austin got rid of Narsingh Deonarine who after facing just four balls, attempted an ill advised swipe and was caught without scoring as the Guyanese slipped to 43 for 3.
Guyana went to lunch at 81-3 with Fudadin and Ramnaresh Sarwan on 20 each.
The Guyanese fell into further trouble after the interval when Sarwan (28) and Steven Jacobs (28) were dismissed by Raymon Reifer and Ryan Austin respectively.
Fudadin continued to bat nicely and brought up his half century, off 166 balls with three fours and a maximum.
Fudadin and Bramble showed grit and batted carefully to consolidate the innings, the duo rotated the strike nicely and played a number of handsome shots on both sides of the wickets before Fudadin and skipper Veersammy Permaul went is quick succession. Fudadin was bowled by one that turned sharply while, Permaul, was caught at forward short leg for 1 off the second ball in the last over.
Off spinner Ryan Austin was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 72. He received support from medium pacer Raymon Reifer who claimed 2 for 28, while Nekoli Parris and fast bowler Kesrick Williams claimed one wicket apiece.
The second day today starts at 10:00 hours and admission to the venue is free.
