Malteenoes Sports Club (MSC), led by the experience of Lennox Cush, Orin Ford and Troy Lewis, all past their best days as players, beat defending Champions Police by three wickets while a half-century opening stand between Taignarine Chanderpaul and Akshaya Persaud led Everest to a 61-run victory over GYO when play in the GCA’s Carib Beer T20 first division cricket competition continued yesterday at the Everest ground.
MSC asked Police to bat on a two-paced track with preparation moisture and posted 115-9. MSC replied with 117-7 with one ball to spare. The Cops quickly lost Andrew Lyght (1) at 5-1 he skied Edwin Burnette to cover.
Videsh Dhaniram (20), who clipped Burnette for six and danced into Steven Jacobs and stroked him over mid-off for a couple of fours, was trapped LBW by Delon Dalrymple before Troy Benn (11) fell to leg-spinner Steven Sankar at 37-3.
Two wickets tumbled in the space of six runs before Ricardo Adams, who hit Burnette for consecutive boundaries in his 34, missed a reverse sweep to a full toss and was bowled by Ford at 95-6. Kelvin Leitch (23*) also reached double figures.
Cush (2-12), Dalrymple (2-25) and Ford (2-7) bowled well for MSC who lost Delvon McEwen (4), bowled by Stephon Harris who also got rid of Jacobs (3). When Lewis, who pulled Rocky Hutson for six and played intelligently, was bowled by Jason Heyliger for 23 at 35-3, MSC needed a partnership badly.
Ford and Cush, who both represented Guyana in T20 cricket, put their experience to work with a wonderfully constructed 64-run stand before Cush was bowled by Adams for 33 which included three sixes.
When Ford, 24 (3×4) was run out at 99-5, two wickets fell for one run but with 11 required from the last over bowled Seon Daniels, Sankar hit the first ball for six before he was LBW, Kareem Naughton (5*) hit a boundary to seal the game as Harris had 2-13 for Police.
The afternoon game saw Everest reaching 148-9 with Chanderpaul accelerating from a slow start to hit four fours from 30 balls in 49. He shared in a 62-run first wicket partnership with the dominant Persaud who made 38 (1×4 3×6).
Chanderpaul, who pulled DeRoach for four to post the 50, was LBW to Richard Hoyte but Abelish Dookie (11), Shaid Mohamed (16) and Travis Persaud (11) all got into double figures despite 4-29 by left-arm spinner Trevon France who took the tournament’s first hat-trick.
Leg spinner Divesh Ramjattan, son of Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan, had 2-26 and Hoyte (2-26) as GYO, not aided by three run outs, could only reach 87-7 from 20 overs. Christopher Deonarine (11) was bowled by Mohamed at 19-1 and only France, who clobbered two sixes in his unbeaten 25 and DeRoach (19) offered resistance. Mohamed and Raymond Singh, had two wickets each. (Sean Devers)
