All-rounder Sheldon Charles narrowly missed a century as Essequibo Eagles defeated Bacchus over-40 by 72 runs when the teams collided in a 30-over contest on Sunday last at Imam Bacchus ground, Affiance, Essequibo Coast.
Charles, who represented Guyana at the U15 and U17 levels, consolidated with former Essequibo batsman Dinesh Joseph in a third wicket stand after Essequibo Eagles lost opener R. Ramballi for 10, batting first.
Charles blossomed nicely after a slow start as he slammed nine fours and two sixes before he was bowled by G. Deonarine for 94, while Joseph made 32 with six fours.
K. Lall and Lance Roberts chipped in handsomely in the latter stages with Lall scoring 36 which contained two fours and one six and Roberts 27 including two fours and one six; Essequibo Eagles posted 227-5.
Bacchus over-40 were put on the back early in the chase, losing opener S. Baksh, caught off A. Doodnauth without a run on the board. However, M. Jay and V. Deonarine repaired the early damage before Jay was lbw to Lall for 25, while Deonarine was taken off Ramballi for 16.
Roopnarine (only name provided) and E. Singh offered some resistance, but following their separation, wickets fell at regular intervals as Bacchus over-40 were restricted to 155-9. Roopnarine made 22 and E. Singh scored 14.
S. Shotam chipped in with 20, R. Singh 14 and D. Narine 13 as Roberts captured 3-20, Ramballie 2-20, K. Deonarine 2-37 and A. Doodnauth 2-45.
