Regal XI and Wolf Warriors were declared joint champions of the second Georgetown Softball Cricket League Inc (GSCL Inc) 12\12 tournament after rain prevented any play in the final yesterday at the Everest Cricket Club.
Both teams registered comfortable victories in their respective semifinal matches played earlier at the said venue in front of a large and colourful crowd which was entertained by the Tassa drums and loud music.
Regal defeated defending champions Memorex by 42 runs in their semifinal game. Regal batted first and were guided to a respectable 134-6 off their allotted overs mainly through a half century knock by Patrick Rooplall. Rooplall stroked one four and six sixes in a fine 53, while Richard Latiff provided support with 27 (3×4, 1×6); John Perry claimed 3-37.
Purposeful bowling and tidy fielding by Regal restricted Memorex to 92-8 in 12 overs in reply. Alvin Ramdass made 36 (4×4, 2×6), while Roy Jafferally scored 26 (2×6). Balram Roopnarine picked up 3-15 and Ricky Sargeant 2-17 for the winners.
In the second semifinal, Wolf Warriors overcame Trophy Stall by 5 wickets. Trophy Stall took first strike and managed 95 before they were bowled out in 11 overs. Surendra Ramnauth and Surajpaul Deosarran were their leading batsman with 25 and 22 respectively. Vishnu Tannechandra was the pick of the bowlers with 4-13; Narine Bailey had 3-18 and Diaram Persaud 2-12.
Wolf Warriors responded 95 in 10.2 overs with skipper Amit Rai top scoring with 39 (3×4,3×6) while Mohamed Karim chipped in with 25 (2×6) and Safraz Karim 15 (1×6).
Regal and Wolf Warriors shared the first prize of a trophy and $600,000. In an invited comment vice president of the GSCL Ian John thanked the Everest Cricket Club, sponsors and crowd for their support. He said that they were unable to give out the other prizes because the final was rained out but the prizes will be transferred to the next GSCL competition.
