Charity and Devonshire Castle have secured their places in the final of the R & D Engineering Service T20 tournament
after winning their respective semi-final matches played recently at Walton Hall in North Essequibo.
Charity thumped Ravens by 10 wickets in their encounter which was reduced to 15 overs due to rain. Ravens tallied 99-6 off their allotted overs, batting first. Punraj Singh was their leading batsman with 21 while Elroy Stephney made 16 not out.
Devin Thakurdeen claimed 2-16 and Terrence Tulsieram 2-18. Charity blasted their way to 100 without loss in 11.2 overs. Wayne Fernandes led the chase with 45 and Keisho Rooplall slammed 40.
Devonshire Castle trounced Walton Hall by three wickets in their fixture. The home team posted a respectable 179-7 in 20 overs, after taking first strike. Rana Lall hit an unbeaten 41, Latchman Singh 40 and Navin Bahadur 38.
Manoj Lall snared 4-24 while Ramesh Narine and Basil Persaud had one each. Devonshire Castle encountered some nervous moments after losing Ramesh Narine for 32, but Ajay Jailall and Darshan Persaud featured in an unbroken eight-wicket stand of 70 to see their team to safety, ending on 180-7 in 19.4 overs.
Jailall stroked 44 and Persaud 36. Bahadur picked up 3-28 and Vishwanauth Lall 2-32. The final is for the Anna Regina Community Centre ground on October 25.
