The GUYTRAC 20/20 knockout cricket competition in the Upper Corentyne has reached the semifinal stages, with
No. 69 Red Rose Cricket Club being the last team to qualify.
In the lone quarterfinal match played last Sunday, No 69 Red Rose defeated No 70 cricket club by 11 runs in the match that was reduced to a 17 overs affair.
No. 69 Red Rose batted first and scored 141 for 4 off their 17 overs with Tariq Chaitram slamming a belligerent 96 which included (5×4 and 4×6). Bowling for No. 70 C.C Naeem Yacoob Chris Bollers took one wicket each.
In reply No. 70 C.C made a gallant effort, but were bowled out for 130 off 16.3 overs with Latchman Roopchand top scoring with 64. Bowling for No. 69 Red Rose, O. Seeram led the way with 3 wickets, while C. Nourang and I. Khan picked up two each.
The semifinals are slated for tomorrow at the Crabwood Creek Sports Complex ground where both games are expected to be played. The matches are expected to be highly competitive and exciting affairs as all four teams are showing good form.
The CWC ground is on the smaller side when compared to other grounds in the Upper Corentyne and with a plateau of big hitters in all of the teams the matches are expected to be high scoring encounters.
In the first semifinal, No. 48 Challengers will take on No. 69 Red Rose starting at 10:00hrs, whilst in semifinal 2, No. 64 Fighting Marines will come up against Springlands at 14:00hrs. Skeldon CC have already advanced to an eliminator match which will be played against one of the semifinal winners. (Samuel Whyte)
