BCB/Tenelec inc 2015 First Division fifty over cricket competition…
National senior and West Indies under-19 opener Shimron Hetmyer scored a magnificent century to lead his team, Young Warriors to a convincing 6 wicket victory with 17.4 overs to spare in their crucial final preliminary round match versus Tucber Park in the Bobby Deonarine and Tom Gruntzel sponsored Tenelec Inc round robin fifty overs first division cricket competition.
In a must win match for the victors, played at the picturesque Cumberland Cricket Ground, Tucber Park won the toss and took first strike. Their openers, former national youth batsmen Anthony D’Andrade and Joemal LaFleur, took off like bullet from a gun racing to 63 in 8 overs when they lost LaFleur for 40 with 4×4 and 1×6. Berbice senior all rounder Devon Clements joined D’Andrade and continued in the same vain adding a further 55 before the former went lbw to Seon Hetmyer for 30.
After that, the run rate slowed as Young Warriors spinners took control. Hakeem Hinds went run out for 3, followed by Eugene LaFleur (13) caught off former West Indies under-19 and senior national player Gajanand Singh who is back in the country. Wickets continued to fall as the runrate slowed further with Tucber Park losing top scorer D’Andrade for 65,
Keon DeJesus 11, Niall Smith for 0 and Romario Shepherd 20, ending on 194 all out in 47.5 of their allotted 50 overs. Former national youth all rounder Linden Austin took 3 for 43, current national under-19 all rounder Kassim Khan, who was surprisingly left out of the West Indies
Youth team, 2 for 23 and Seon Hetmyer 2 for 46 with one wicket a piece for Singh and Kevin Ramdeen.
Young Warriors began their chase carefully with Shimron Hetmyer and former Berbice inter county centurion Maxie DeJonge. They run rate picked up gradually with the host reaching their hundred in the 22 overs without losing a wicket. Young Warriors lost their first wicket at 122 with DeJonge going for 31. In the meantime, the young Hetmyer, who is preparing for the upcoming regional four day regional tournament, started to dominate the bowling.
Former Berbice youth batsman Waheid Edwards joined the prolific Hetmyer and took the score 170 when Edwards went for 16. Young Warriors then suffered a slight hiccup when they lost Gajanand Singh for 0 and Hetmyer for 118 with 9 fours and 6 sixes, in quick succession. However, former national youth batsmen Kevin Ramdeen and Seon Hetmyer saw them home scoring 12 and 6 NO respectively. Former national youth pacer Niall Smith took 3 for 55. Young Warriors will play their playoff game at the Cumberland ground next Sunday. Tucber Park ended as the runner up of the group and has also qualified for the next round.
