Host Gandhi Youth Organisation (GYO) grabbed first innings points from Diplomats before
rain prevented further play when the Georgetown Cricket Association/ Noble House Sea Foods second division two-day tournament continued yesterday.
Diplomats were sent packing for 73, batting first. Daniel Dawson scored 18, while Sean Hughes and Keshav Augustus made 15 and 14 respectively as pacer Garfield De Roche bagged 5-40 and Wazim Ally 3-13. GYO responded with 164 all out. Trevon France scored 29, Ally 27, De Roche 24, Surendra Hiralall 20 and Devesh Ramjattan 13; Rickford Mohamed captured 5-23 and Hughes 2-19.
Trailing by 91, Diplomats reached 11with out lost batting a second time when the rain intervened leaving an area on the pitch wet. Hughes is on five and Wayne Joseph yet to score.
At GNIC SC, Third Class were in a spot of bother at 67-5 in reply to Sophia’s 156 all out when the rain came. Sophia were reduced to 32-4 before Nicolai Joe and Vackey Barrow added 93 for the fifth wicket to steady the innings. Joe struck 57 before he was dismissed while Barrow made 48. Glenford Stephen and Garth Allen made 16 and 15 in that order as Keon Bailey snared 3-21, Lenny Pancham 3-28 and Trevor Hossein 3-46.
Adrian Persaud (14), Yuvindra Ramnanan (14), Pancham (11), Lionel Mangra (09) and Shawn Hossein (00) are the batsmen back in the pavilion; Ian Innis in unbeaten on 11 and Martin Salik on one. Teon Mc Kenzie has so far taken two wickets.
At Malteenoes SC, Guyana Defence Force declared just before the rain came on 241-4, taking first strike against the host. Leon Andrews and Quincy Mc Pherson frustrated the home team with an opening stand of 181. Both batsmen survived some anxious moments, but timed the ball well in hazy conditions. Andrews struck fourteen fours and two sixes in an attractive unbeaten 115 while Mc Pherson hit eight fours in scoring 77. After the demise of Mc Pherson, GDF lost Damian Whitney (16), Randy Lindore (00) and Jeremiah Harris (01) before the declaration came. Darian Best took 2-33 while Edwin Burnette and Marcus Watkins had one each.
At Everest, the home team were rescued by a 168-run fifth wicket partnership between skipper Khemraj Ramdeen and Richie Looknauth after they were restricted to 61-4, batting first against Transport Sports Club. The pair batted sensibly to guide their team to 229-4 before the rain came. Ramdeen is not out on 113 and Looknauth on 51. Owen Andrew has so far taken three wickets. Matches continue today.
