BCB/Universal DVD First Division T/20 Cricket - Bharrat slams 84 for Bush Lot Rising Star

Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - Cricket action in this year’s Berbice Cricket Board (BCB)-organised, Universal DVD Club-sponsored first division T/20 competition continued last weekend with some more rescheduled matches, in which Sumnauth Bharrat blasted 84 for Bush Lot Rising Star (BLRS) of West Berbice last Friday.

BLRS had a good day, emerging victorious in both of their matches on their home ground, defeating Edinburgh by 108 runs and later the much-fancied West Berbice by six wickets.

Bharrat blasted seven sixes and six fours in his 84 that took him 36 deliveries to aggregate, which, together with Asif Khan’s 29 - the pair adding 100 for the third wicket from 10.1 overs -  steered BLRS to 166 for 4.

When Edinburgh replied, they could not cope with pacer Dellon Joseph who took 3 for 2 and off-spinners Asif Khan and Javed Saywack who had the identical figures of 2 for 8 from 3 overs, and were bowled out for 58 in 14 overs.

In the second match, it was former Guyana Under-17 all-rounder Keno Gravesande whose 3 for 15 and 27 which led BLRS to their upset win over West Berbice.

The following day (last Saturday), West Berbice completed a bad weekend by suffering another upset loss, this time at the hands of Skeldon Community Centre despite medium pacer Keith Fraser’s 3 for 23 and an unbeaten 45 as an opener.

At Bush Lot, Bush Lot Rising Star beat Edinburgh by 108 runs.
