On a beautiful Friday evening under lights with a large gathering of family members and friends, Floodlights defeated Savage Masters in a T20 softball game in honour of the 64th birth anniversary of popular businessman Ramesh Sunich of Trophy Stall, Bourda Market.
Savage Masters batted first and scored 176 for 6 off their allotted overs. They lost two early wickets in Patrick Khan bowled by Reyaz Hussain for 13 and Troy Ramsaywack run out for nine. N. Baksh also followed shortly for one leaving Savage Masters in some trouble at 47 for 3. Rudolph Perriera then joined opener Seeraj Bheemsain and blasted the ball to all parts of the ground in a partnership of 77 before Perriera was run out for 27. Bheemsain rallied with the rest of the batting to end on 94 not out. Hussain, Rakesh Arjune and Petambar Maharaj took one wicket a piece.
In reply, Floodlights lost the prolific Uniss Yusuf early via the run out route for two. Ramo Malone then joined Anil Beharry and steadied the chase before they fell in quick succession. Malone spanked the bowlers to all parts of the ground in making a robust 66 consisting of seven fours and three sixes, while Beharry fell for 30. However, Essequibian Ramesh Narine, possibly the best softball batsman around, teamed up with Imtiaz Mohamed and took their team to victory with one ball to spare in an unbroken partnership of 60. Narine clobbered two fours and four sixes in a rapid 44, while Mohamed made 15.
At the presentation ceremony, Steve Narine was voted best bowler and Malone best batsman for Floodlights. Bheemsain was the best batsman and Perriera best bowler for Savage Masters. There were also trophies for best fielder and best catch on both teams. Malone was named man-of-the match.
