The Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club completed its first overseas tour since its resuscitation in 2013 recently with a tour to the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Tours of this nature were common in the 1970’s between Enmore Cricket Club and teams in South Trinidad. The Enmore delegation to Trinidad comprised of 17 members and 17 supporters.
The last overseas tour by Enmore Cricket Club was made by a Vickey Sasenarine (deceased) led team in 1978 where they engaged teams from the St. Madeline area South Trinidad.
The Enmore C.C.C.C squad, which included ten players under the age of under 24 years, took on Exchange Sports Club in the first game in a T20 fixture and suffered a 36-run defeat. Exchange Sports Club, which included four players with national experience, batted first and scored 148 for 9 in their allotment of overs with Nigel Boodhoo making an unbeaten 38 (4×4, 2×6). Chris Surat, Chaitram Ramlall, Satesh Jainarine, Yuvraj Dayal and Ranjeet Hiralall took two wickets each for E.C.C.C.C.
In reply E.C.C.C.C were restricted to 115 for 9 wickets off 20 overs with Veerasammy Moonsammy and Christopher Surat scoring 24 and 20 runs respectively. Amelia Kaheera took 3 wkts for 22, whilst Christopher Vincent and Trinbago Knightriders Anderson Phillip 2 wkts for 22 runs apiece.
Prizes were awarded to Christopher Surat of E.C.C.C.C- man of the match, Amelio Kaheera- best bowler and Nigel Bodhoo-best batsman.
In game two, two E.C.C.C.C defeated Old Mac Exchange Sports Club by 105 runs in a 30 overs game. E.C.C.C.C batted first and posted 218 for 9 wickets with Rudolph Singh scoring 57 (5×4, 2×6), B. Ramkelawan 47 from 22 deliveries (6×4, 2×6 ) and Ranjeet Hiralall 18. In reply the host team were bowled out for 113 in 23 overs with A. Gajadar scoring 25. Rudolph Singh returned to take 5 wickets for 8 runs and Satash Jainarine 3 wickets for 25 from 6 overs for E.C.C.C.C. Rudolph Singh took away prizes for Best batsman and bowler along with the man of the match award.
Meanwhile, the third match was not possible due to inclement weather. As a result E.C.C.C.C played two 10 overs windball matches against Couva masters.
E.C.C.C.C won the first game by 6 runs via a super over. SCORES: Couva Masters 88 and 8, ECCCC 88 and 14. Nabindra Gobin hit an unbeaten 40 for ECCCC. Couva Masters rebounded in game two to win by one wicket off the final delivery. Scores: ECCCC 78 for 9, Couva masters 79 for 9.
