Leroy Bristol (69), Eon Gibson (42) see Courtland All Stars through to the final
Defending champions Courtland All Stars are through to the final of the Raffik & Sons Construction Second
Division 20-Over Cricket Competition which was specifically organised for teams in the Lower/Central Corentyne Area, defeating Rose Hall Town Bakewell by 30 runs in their semi-final played recently.
In the match which was played at Fyrish, Courtland All Stars sent in to take first strike, lost two early wickets to be 15 for 2 in the 3rd over. Former Guyana Under-19 allrounder Leroy Bristol then took charge, firstly putting on 70 for the 3rd wicket with Keon Sinclair (27) and then 60 for the 4th wicket with former Berbice cricketer Eon Gibson, before he (Bristol) fell for 69 (10 fours and 2 sixes).
Gibson continued, hitting 42 (3 fours and 4 sixes) and along with Troy Matheson 22, Courtland All Stars made 214 for 7 in their 20-Overs. Bowling for Rose Hall Town, former Berbice Under-19 off spinner Khemraj Mahadeo took 3 for 25 from 3-Overs, Collis Butts 3 for 35 from 4-Overs and Berbice Under-17 pacer Cylus Tyndall 2 for 43 from 4-Overs.
When Rose Hall Town Bakewell started their response, they lost their first wicket in the second Over at 12 for 1. Khemraj Mahadeo came in and he successfully attacked the bowling taking the score to 55 for 1 after 6-Overs. However, he fell at that point to offspinner John Percival for 39 (4 fours and 3 sixes).
Percival soon struck again along with off spinner Troy Matheson to have them 63 for 3. All along, former Berbice batsman James Fraser moved the score along nicely allowing Rose Hall to start threatening Courtland’s peace of mind. But with Fraser eventually falling for 56 (4 fours and 4 sixes) and Brandon Prashad 21, Rose Hall Town could only muster 174 for 7 in their 20-Overs. Bowling for Courtland All Stars, Percival ended with 2 for 21 from 4-Overs and Matheson 2 for 31 from 4-Overs.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
