A brilliant unbeaten 205 from 19-year-old Tagenarine Chanderpaul highlighted the latest round of matches in the GCA’s Trophy Stall, GISC and Star Party Rentals two-day first division Cricket tournament which ended yesterday in the City.
Everest and DCC registered outright victories, while Malteenoes had to settle for first innings points in their drawn game against GNIC.
At Camp Road, Everest beat Police by an innings and 47 runs.
Scores: Police (208 & 186), Everest (441-6 declared).
Chanderpaul scored his first division one ‘double’ as the talented left-hander reached the boundary 14 times in a magnificent display to lead Everest to a massive score which is the highest total in the competition this year.
Chanderpaul began the final day on 71 with Everest on 178-2 and the former West Indies under-19 opener was watched by his illustrious father Shiv Chanderpaul on the first day before Shiv departed yesterday for a tournament for retired Internationals in Dubai.
The younger Chanderpaul shared in a 202-run fourth wicket stand with Amir Khan who hit 10 fours and a six in an attractive 86 after he had added 126 for the third wicket with Skipper Akshaya Persaud (64). Chanderpaul Hemraj weighed in with 57 decorated with eight fours and a six on the slow track and fast outfield.
Jason Heyliger took 2-78 for Police, who began their second innings needing 231 to make Everest bat a second time and fell for 186 just before the close despite half-centuries from Andrew Lyght Jr (51) and Heyliger (54).
However, only Randy Knights (21) of the other batsmen offered token resistance as Hemraj (5-46) and Persaud (2-24) bowled their team to victory.
In Queenstown, DCC beat GYO by an innings and 88 runs.
Scores: DCC (362-8 declared), GYO (132 & 143)
After Centuries from Chris Barnwell (116) and teenager Kemol Savory (100*) had given the host a huge total, Cohen Ishmod (5-33) and Carlton Jacques shared nine wicket between them as GYO were bowled for 132 and following-on, the Woolford Avenue unit reached 9-2 by the close of day one in which three innings being played.
Greg Gill hammered four fours and five sixes in an explosive 52, but only Garfield DeRoach (32) of the others showed any fight as off-spinner Denis Squires befuddled the batsmen with his second five-wicket haul in two games to finish with 6-46 as the game was done and dusted before Lunch.
In Thomas Lands, Malteenoes played to a draw in their own backyard.
Scores: GNIC (118 & 264-7), MSC (213)
Led by 5-25 from Kellon Carmichael and 3-33 from leg-spinner Steven Sankar, MSC dismissed GNIC for the lowest total in the round before fifties from Elton Baker and Orin Forde gave MSC first innings points.
GNIC began their second innings yesterday 95 runs in arrears and feared much better than they did first time around to deny MSC full points.
Former Guyana First-Class batsman Gajanand Singh continued his return to division one cricket with an accomplished 81, while Jermaine Grosnor (50*) and Joshua Persaud (46) frustrated the MSC attack with confident stroke play. Sankar captured five wickets to end with an eight-wicket match haul.
