2014 NBS Second Division 40-Over cricket competition
– Police advance
Chesney felt themselves in a comfortable position when they posted a challenging 241 for 9 in 40 overs against
Cotton Tree Die Hard in their last 16 playoff of the 2014 New Building Society Second Division 40-Over cricket competition in Berbice. Cotton Tree was up to the challenge having had an opening stand of 84 from Jagdeo Persaud (49) and Permaul Singh (36) and after they slipped to 116 for 2, Romain Boodram came in and took complete charge, firstly putting on 51 for the 3rd wicket with Singh. Two more quick wickets fell, leaving them at 172 for 4. However, Abdul Subhan joined Boodram and together they saw their team home with a 90 run unbroken 5th wicket stand with 9 overs to spare. At the end Boodram was 100 not out which included 7 fours and 9 sixes and Subhan 28 not out.
In another playoff, Police did well to score 252 for 7 in 30 overs against No. 55 Mayflower whose No.3 batsman, D. Harvey when they responded, refused to accept being given out by the standing umpire. He hurled aggressive remarks at the umpire for about one minute. The umpires complained then Harvey eventually went off the field. The No.55 Mayflower team refused to send in another batsman to replace Harvey and after waiting for eight (8) minutes, the game was awarded to Police. It has been reported that a spectator assaulted one of the umpires. The Competition Committee of the Berbice Cricket Board, which takes a strong view for the dissent shown by players and officials during BCB organized matches, will meet with all parties involved on Tuesday. A decision will then be made.
Police in their innings were spearheaded by Michael Campbell who made 72 (5 fours and 6 sixes) and Don Farley with 51 (4 fours and 3 sixes).
