Mavindra Dindyal struck a half century while Marlon Boele picked up four wickets to guide East Bank Demerara (EBD) a 61-run victory over West Demerara when the Inter Association U-17 50-over tournament concluded yesterday in Demerara.
EBD opted to bat and lost the early scalp of Yeudistir Persaud lbw to Joshua Reddy without scoring, but Mahindra Persaud and Sachin Singh added 80 for the second wicket to stabilise the innings.
Persaud struck four boundaries before he was run out for a fluent 38 while Singh was stumped off Rajesh Budram for 17, one run later. However Dindyal anchored the innings with a run-a-ball 51 (5×4); he added 71 with Rahul Singh who was dismissed for 13 before he fell, caught and bowled by Andre Seepersaud as EBD managed 181-7. Seepersaud claimed 2-19.
West Demerara’s reply got off to a steady start with openers Ushardeva Balgobin and Nicholas Rajpat putting on 34 before Saurav Singh handed EBD the breakthrough by removing Balgobin for 13. Rajpat and Seepersaud kept their team in the hunt with a partnership of 40 for the second wicket before Rajpat was caught and bowled by Zachary Jodah for 22.
Seepersaud was then removed by Mohamed Jameer for 28 (3×4) while Avinash Khemraj was the only other batsman that offered any resistance with 17 as West Demerara were bowled out for 120 in 42 overs. Boele finished with 4-27, Jameer 3-16 and Jodah 2-21.
