Kaieteur News – The GCB/Tropical Spring T20 Cricket tournament bowled off yesterday with four games, while the two matches at Everest were washed out without a ball being.
Half centuries were recorded by former West Indies U-19 batsman and Guyana Amazon Conquerors T20 Opener Richard Ramdeen and John ‘Kemraj’ Sumair, who is the elder brother of former Guyana U-19 batsman Budnarine Sumair, while the best bowling performance of the was achieved by Govinda Dindyal who took 4-7 from three overs.
At Everest, West Demerara Masters and Everest Masters had to settle for a point after four inspections in the morning game.
After heavy overnight rain subsided the Umpires made inspections at 9:30 and again at 10Am but ominous dark clouds gathered over the Atlantic Ocean and when the Sun eventually returned it was already 11:58 AM and with cut-off time being 12:05 PM, the game was called off.
In the afternoon game in the City between KV Constructions Masters and Regal Masters, no play was possible despite the hard work of the ground staff as the Umpires who made several inspections, deemed the ground too wet to facilitate play.
At the small Jai Hind ground just behind the Albion Sports Complex, Jai Hind Masters beat General Marines Masters by 30 runs in the morning game.
A pugnacious 58 from John ‘Kemraj’ Sumair who reached boundary twice and cleared it six times, an unbeaten 40 with three fours and two sixes from Zahir Moakan and a cameo 17 not out from Narine Deonarine with two sixes, led Jai Hind Masters to 140-6 in a game reduced to 15 overs due to morning rain.
The home team slumped to 17-4 as Winton London (3-8) struck thrice in space of no runs to leave the score on 8-3 before Veeren Moonsammy (2) departed.
Sumir and Moakan joined forces and carried the score to 100 before Sumair departed in the 12th over when was removed by Diaram Hemraj.
Moakan was joined by former Berbice 50-over left-hander Anil Beharry who was stumped for six before Deonarine and Moakan hammered 27 in the last two overs.
General Marines Masters were restricted to 110-3 when their 15 overs expired despite an undefeated 42 from Hemraj. Mustak Shaw (18) and Surujpaul (17) offered token resistance as Moakan crowed a fine all round performance by taking 2-14, Trevor Crawford took 4-8 in this match.
