A fine 67 from Guyana T20 player Jonathan Foo, a four wicket haul (4-39) from National pacer Raun Johnson and good all round performance by out of form Test batsman Narsingh Deonarine were the highlights of the first BCB Senior Trials yesterday at Albion.
The three trials games are being used to select the Berbice One-Day team for the upcoming Inter County Cricket tournament which is scheduled to commence next week Thursday.
Deonarine’s X1 won the toss and elected to take first strike. They started poorly losing Rafael Estriado and former National youth batsman Seon Hetmyer, the elder brother of West Indies U-19 batsmen Shemron Hetmyer who will play for the victorious Guyana youth side in the Inter-County tournament .
The 31 year-old Deonarine, who last played a Test match against New Zealand last year December and Foo, who was part of the team that represented Guyana at the 2010 Champions League t20 tournament in South Africa, combined to take their team out of trouble with the highest partnership of the match to help their team post a formidable total of 212 all out in 47 overs.
Foo was assisted by Deonarine with 40. Assad Fudadin X1 batted poorly in their reply finishing on 157 all out. Only Gudakesh Moti (30) and Jason Sinclair (27) offered some resistance. Deonarine returned to take 2-21 and Krishendat Ramoo 2-19.
The second and third trial matches will be played today and tomorrow respectively at the same venue from 09.00hrs. Players are reminded that they must be at the ground from 08.00hrs. (Sean Devers)
