Bailey captures 10-wkts, Tyndell scores unbeaten 73 for Police
Led by an impressive 10-wicket haul from Man-of-the-Match Bernard Bailey, host GCC recaptured their Noble House Seafoods two-day Second Division Final with a first innings points draw against Police at Bourda yesterday despite a pugnacious unbeaten 73 from Police’s Paul Tyndell.
Scores: Police 107 & 151-9 declared, GCC 144&69-3.
The final day began in steaming heat with GCC overnight on 80-3 on a slow but good track for batting and sluggish outfield.
Timothy McAlmont and Renaldo Ali-Mohammed took the score to 121 as Ali-Mohammed, two levels above his colleagues, took 85 balls for his 33 which included a single six before he edged Hemchand Persuad to the Keeper.
The left-arm spinner struck again without addition to the score when Joshua Wade was LBW for duck.
McAlmont and 13-year-old Zakery Jodah carried the score to 141, as GCC already with first innings points, seemed satisfied with a draw and showed very little positivity.
When Jodah, the son of former Guyana U-19 Left-hander Richard Jodah, was bowled by Pernell London, he had played an excellent supporting role to McAlmont, spending 48 balls at the crease for his one run and his demise triggered a dramatic batting collapse as the last five wickets tumbled for just three runs.
After genuflecting and sweeping leg-spinner Vishaul Jaigobin for a couple and on-driving him for four off the next ball, McCalmont was bowled by Jason Heyliger at 143-7. His 42 lasted 99 balls and included three boundaries as the over cautious approach by GCC back-fired.
London then dismissed the last two batsmen (Stephon Wilson and Rivaldo Phillips) for ducks to finish with 3-3, while Persaud 2-36 and Heyliger 2-33 supported well.
With a lead of 37 Police raced to 70-2 by Lunch from 12.2 over after Reginald Rodrigues (14) was caught behind off the 23-year-old Bailey at 41-1 and Kemol Savory (6) edged Ali-Mohammed to the Keeper on the stroke of Lunch.
After the interval Tyndell and Andrew Lyght attacked the bowlers resulting in Captain Khemraj Jaikaran placing seven fielders on the off-side boundary with bowlers bowling wide of off stump to limit the scoring.
Lyght (16) was bowled by the lively Bailey, but although wickets were falling at the other end Tyndell kept his onslaught going and was 73 not out with seven fours when the declaration was made leaving GCC to get 103 in 21 overs.
Bailey followed up his 6-36 in the first innings with 4-80, while Ali-Mohammed took 2-60 for GCC who were 69-3 when play ended with Ali-Mohammed unbeaten on 27 with two sixes and a four. With him was McAlmont on six.
Heyliger finished with 3-17 after removing Deonarine Seegobin (9), Wade (18) and Jaikaran (8). (Sean Devers)
