By Sean Devers
National all-rounder Chris Barnwell again stamped his authority at the local level with a blistering 166, teenager Kemol Savory registered his third first division century and off-spinner Cohen Ismond grabbed 5-37 including a hat-trick
as hosts DCC put themselves in a commanding position to win outright early today against GYO in latest action in the GCA’s Trophy Stall, GISC and Star Party Rentals two-day first division Cricket tournament yesterday.
Kellon Carmichael’s took the first five wickets to end with 5-25 which along with blistering half-centuries from Eton Baker and Orin Forde spearheaded home team Malteenoes to first innings points against GNIC despite 5-16 from Ryan Shun.
At Everest, Troy Gonsalves’ 5-69 and an unbeaten 72 from Tagenarine Chanderpaul supported by Akshaya Persaud 64 left Everest well placed for first innings points against Police.
No scores were available in the other game yesterday between GDF and TSC at the GDF ground since Kaieteur Sports was refused entry through the main gate at Camp Ayanganna while the Eastern gate which is usually used for sporting events on the ground, was padlocked.
At DCC, the 29-year-old Barnwell celebrated his return from the Regional Super50 with a scintillating 166 with 11 fours and 14 sixes, while 19-year-old Savory counted 10 fours and two sixes in a classy unbeaten 100. The pair got support from Cleon McEwen (41) and Ismond (20) to spur DCC to 362-8 declared.
Garfield DeRoach took 3-73 for GYO who were bowled out for 132 with Abhilash Dookie, who made 41 with three fours and three sixes, top scoring, while DeRoach (27) and Chris Deonarine (23) also contributed.
Ismond got support from Carlton Jacques (4-36) but GYO, following-on, 231 away from avoiding an innings defeat, ended the day on 3-2 with Deonarine (0) and Trevon France (1) both back in the pavilion.
At MSC, GNIC were dismissed for 118 with only Shun (21) reaching 20 as Carmichael ran through the top order. Steven Sankar (3-33) and Elton Baker (2-24) supported Carmichael for MSC who responded with 213.
Baker, who slammed 51 from 40 balls with nine fours and Forde who clobbered 53 from 21 balls with four fours and six sixes, added 104 for the fourth wicket in explosive fashion. Shemroy Barrington reached the boundary four times and cleared it twice in 41 and added 60 for the first wicket with Joseph Cupidore (12).
At Everest, Police fell for 208 with Kanhaiya Ramkarran (34), Vishal Jaigobin (28), Kevin Leitch (26), Corwin Austin (23), Randy Knights (23) and Seon Daniels (26) all getting ‘starts’ with Daniels and Ramkarran putting on 54 for the last wicket.
Gonsalves, who captured four wickets bowling pace and the other with usual leg-spin, bowled well for Everest who reached 178-2 by the close.
Renaldo Renee (0) who fell without a run on the board and Persaud who played some delightful shots in his half-century are the batsmen out.
Chanderpaul, who stroked 81 in his last First-Class innings in Jamaica, favored the cut and shared in an unfinished half-century third wicket stand with Chanderpaul Hemraj who ended the day on 35.
Today is the second and final day and play is scheduled to commence at 09:30 hrs.
