Last Sunday, you could not have asked for a more beautiful day for cricket, as the EACA first-division 20/20 got underway with two double-header matches on a normally lush Hecksher State Park.

The much-anticipated East Bank vs. Everest/ACS match was of much interest, since the two teams did not get to square off in the previous semi-final of the league’s Big-4 competition, but it was the 2008 Big-4 champions who emerged victorious this time around, as they convincingly put a thumping on Everest/ACS/.

Winning the toss and sending Everest/ACS in to take first strike, East Bank saw the Zamin Amin led XI posting a total of 146 for the loss of nine wickets off the allotted 20 overs. Top scorers were R. Sookdeo, 25, G. Umadan, 21, A. Khan, 21 and, T. Hastoo, 18.

Bowling for East Bank: T. Johnson 3-0-28-2, T. McKenzie 3-0-24-1, T. Harper 4-0-42-1, S. Mangru 4-0-10-0, Z. Sadloo 3-0-21-2 and D. McDonald 3-0-15-2 wkts.

The Everest/ACS wickets fell at: 1/16, 2/32, 3/58, 4/67, 5/110, 6/120, 7/120, 8/141 and 9/141.

In reply East Bank hit off the required 147 runs for the loss of only four wickets in 18.2 overs. Debo Sankar led the onslaught with 40 before retiring with a stomach pain. However, Telston Johnson, 30 not out, Deryck McDonald, 16 not out, T. Mckenzie, 16 and Z. Sadloo, 10, were the main contributors.

Telston Johnson had a fine all-round performance and is beginning to excel as a superb all-rounder of the future, as he helped his team in the EACA’s 2008 Big-4 championship.

Bowling for Everest/ ACS: S. Amin 4-0-16-1, T. Walke 4-0-36-0, T. Hastoo 4-0-34-0, and Z. Amin 3.2-0-16-0 and K. Ganesh 3-0-34-3 wkts.

The East Bank wickets fell at: 1/46, 2/91, 3/93 and 4/93.
