By Zaheer Mohamed
East Bank whipped West Demerara by 104 runs when play in the Demerara Cricket Board Inter Association U-15 50 overs tournament continued yesterday at Everest Cricket Club.
East Bank posted 259 all out in 49.4 overs batting first before restricting West Demerara to 155 in 48.2 overs. Paul Thomas top scored for East Bank with a stroke filled 70 which included eleven fours. He shared in a third wicket stand of 119 with Sagar Hathiramani who slammed one four in scoring 35 after East Bank were reduced to 21-3.
Mark Ramsammy stabilised the middle order with 47 including six fours before Bhojnarine Singh and Rawle Douglas added 63 for the seventh wicket stand to help their team to a challenging total. Singh made 21 (1×4) and Douglas 14; extras contributed meaningfully with 61 inclusive of 57 wides. Aftab Basir snared 3-51 from six overs, while Retesh Samaroo claimed 2-43 off 10 overs.
West Demerara lost their first wicket at five before Ahamad Sattaur (13) and Troy Persaud took the score to 30, but after Persaud was dismissed for six West Demerara lost two more wickets with out addition to the score. Consistent bowling by the East Bank lads ensured there was a steady procession to and from the pavilion until Ganesh Jitlall, who stroked eight fours and the only six in the game and Chukiram Outar, halted the fall of wickets with a seventh
wicket stand of 62.
Jitlall eventually departed for 59 while Outar went for 16. Basir and Daneshwar Kowlessar were the other batsmen that showed fight with 14 each. Anthony Antonio grabbed 4-28 off nine overs including a hat trick while Bhojnarine Singh captured 2-33.
The competition continues today.
