2014 BCB/Tenelec Inc. Under-15…. Kevin Sinclair slams 100 and takes 7 for 4 for Police
Guyana Chronicle article.
Georgetown, Guyana - Cricket action in the 2014 Berbice Cricket Board (BCB)-organised Tenelec Inc.-sponsored Under-15 Inter-club competition started recently across the Ancient County, with Kevin Sinclair and Seon Glasgow Jr highlighting the round with their individual performances.
Representing Police, Sinclair who bowls off-spin took 7 for 4 to help his side scuttle out Rose Hall Community Centre for a paltry 13, before he opened the batting and struck an even century, the first of the competition, adding 186 for the first wicket with Ravindra Beharry (42) as Police scored 217 for 8 declared.
However, their aim to push for an outright win was denied by the Rose Hall batsmen, who in their second innings held firm to be 19 for 2, thus earning themselves a creditable draw.
Like Sinclair, Glasgow Jr also bowls off-spin and he wasted little time in garnering 4 for 31 which together with leg-spinner Sachin Veerasammy’s 3 for 3, enabled Blairmont Community Centre to dismiss Bush Lot New Generation for 79, Yovindra Budhu topscoring with 34.
Veerasammy returned with the bat to top-score with 65, as Blairmont replied with 166 for 6 declared, receiving support from Javed Karim who made 32, even as Budhu took 3 for 26 and Kris Ramnarine 2 for 31.
In their second innings, Bush Lot made 112, with Ramnarine, who represented Berbice at the Under-15 level last year, slamming 82 in the face of Glasgow’s 6 for 24 to end with 10 for 55, as that encounter also ended in a draw.
Rose Hall Town Farfan and Mendes recorded an innings-and-27-run victory over Big Star, thanks mainly to 62 from Kevon Anderson and an eight-wicket match haul from left-arm spinner Emanuel Seecharran.
Playing at the Area ‘H’ ground, the home team batted first and scored 126 for 6 declared, with Anderson receiving support with the bat from Keith Simpson who made 25, even as Sherwin Lowe took 2 for 54 for Big Star.
In reply, Big Star were bowled out for 53 in their first innings, with Emmanuel Seecharran claiming 5 for 17, Brandon Corlette 3 for 10 and Cromwell Davidson 2 for 0. In their second innings they made 46 despite 23 from Kevon Hooper, as Kevon Anderson (5 for 5) and Seecharran 3 for 11 did the damage with the ball for the victorious home team.
