Sept. 24th, 2009
In the second round of New York Softball Cricket League 2009 Mini
World Cup Tewnty20 sponsored by Mike Bansi, Country Boys defeated
Liberty Knights in a game where defense rein supreme.
Liberty Knights won the toss and send Country Boys into bat, the decision
seemed to be the correct call. Country Boys batsmen found runs to
be a scarce commodity. Liberty Knights bowlers bowled a steady aggressive
line which reduces the batsmen to only singles. Country Boys had scored
44 runs at the end of ten over interval.
After the break Country Boys batsmen began to attack and it paid big
dividend, it was mostly thankful to some aggressive batting by Derek
Edwards (21 runs) and valuable contribution by Andrew Jerrick (16
not out) and Ricky Edwards (11 not out). Country Boys ended their
innings at 115 for 5 in 20 overs. Bowling for Liberty Knights Andrew,
Walker, Raj and Shawn took 1 wicket each.
may have considered the small total an easy target. The batsmen
started out attacking the bowlers as to confirm that the runs would
be got easily. They took 11 runs off the second over and were trying
to burst the game wide open. But Country Boys captain had other
plans; a change in bowlers soon brought the break through. Liberty
Knights batsmen now started to find runs hard to come by.
A patient S.
Singh (25 runs) kept Liberty Knights in the early part of the game
and gallant Brian Manniram (19 runs) in the latter stage of the
game. But Country Boys was able to pull the game back and Liberty
Knights was 54 run at the ten over break. After the break Country
Boys applied the pressure led by a fiery spell by Ricky Edwards
(4 wickets) who had 3 wickets in one over. In the end the stifling
pressure applied by Country Boys bowlers reduces the Knights to
only scoring 45 runs in the second half. Liberty Knights ended
their innings at 99 for 8 in 20 overs. Country Boys bowling was
led by Ricky Edwards 4 for 15, Andrew Jerrick 2 for 8 and Ivor Chan
1 for 11.
X1 Dim The Light On Sunrise Batsman
By Morris Seecharan
The last time these two teams met in the regular 30 Cup over competition
it was a sunshine day which ended up with rain storm, but this did
not stop both teams to collectively scored 400 plus runs. In that
last game batsmen for both Essequibo X1 and Sunrise were sparkly
lit like lightning and balls were racing across boundaries line.
However, Sunrise chasing 212 runs fell short by 12 runs batting
in the rain.
Last Sunday Twenty/20 Mini World Cup game played at Seaview Park
in Brooklyn, Essequibo X1 won the toss and without hesitation send
in Sunrise to bat. Experiencing that the Sunrise team was capable
of chasing runs; Essequibo X1 came up with a game plan to dim the
light on Sunrise batsman. In the first ball of the game Essequibo
XI keeper appealed for a strong caught behind, delaying the game
with all right but the ruling umpire with consultation with square
leg did not give an out. Well on the second ball Sunrise opening
batsman give what appeared to be straight back catch to the Essequibo
XI opening bowler E. Martin and was given out with the score at
0 runs. The second of Essequibo XI opening bowler R. Britton picket
up the second opening batsman in his first ball of his first over
and Sunrise was 2 wickets for 4 runs. Sunrise captain, Derrick Basdeo
batting at third down could not believe what he was seeing when
E. Martin came right back and pick up Sunrise 3rd wicket with the
score at 8 runs. This was the beginning for what will be the dimming
of the lights on Sunrise batsman.
Derrick Basdeo taking control looked like he would be able to shed
some light for Sunrise batting. Batting with Roopnarine Dayal they
manage a 30 runs partnership which ended with the unfortunate run
out of Dayal at the score at 38 in 7th over, and the 4th wicket
down. At the end of 10th over Sunrise was at 45 runs for the loss
of 6 wickets. As Derrick continue to bat in the second half things
did not brighten up as Sunrise continue to lose wickets. At this
point it appears that the Sunrise captain, Derrick will be the lone
man standing at the end. Unfortunately with Deryck at 31 runs and
in the 13 over he was caught off the bowling of R. Siniliar. Sunrise
saw their only light of this game blanked out at the score of 65
runs and the 9 wicket down. Kemraj Sital batting at 11th score a
significant 7 runs not out to give Sunrise a total of 72 runs all
out in 15.3 over.
In reply, Essequibo
X1 opening pair C. Beaton and Julian Holder started racing to finish
this small total, they were poised at 19 in 3 overs. Captain Deryck
introduce himself and Leonard Vasquez helped to keep Essequibo XI
batting to a low run rate. The spin bowling at this point proved
to stabilize the game as the Essequibo XI opening pair find it hard
to score. However, Sunrise missed early opportunities by dropping
both Essequibo X1 opening pairs at a low score and missed run outs
which came back to very decisive in this game. In a game where bowling
was the world of difference for both teams, Sunrise bowler showed
class by putting up a fight to defend their low score.
Essequibo X1 lost their first wicket Julian Holder who made 12 runs
with the score on 38 in the 9th over. Sunrise bowlers continued
to give a fight keeping Essequibo X1 batsman to a low run rate.
C. Beaton the main treat for Essequibo who made 30 was finally out
via run out in the 13 overs. However at this point Essequibo XI
was cruising to victory. In the 15.2 over D. Hooper who made 15
runs end the game when he struck a four, which bring the Essequibo
total to 75 runs for the loss of 3 wickets, and victory well deserved.
Eon Ellis of Assassins struck his second
half century of the competition.
