Guyana Times article.

Georgetown, Guyana - First-Class leg-spinner Amir Khan and fast bowler Ranjeet Hiralall played crucial roles on Sunday to lead Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) to a four-wicket victory over Bravado in a feature 30-over match at the Enmore Community Centre ground.

Witnessed by another fair sized crowd, Bravado won the toss and elected to bat first, posting 152 from the allotted 30 overs.

Hiralall was outstanding with the ball, snaring a career-best 4-28 as the Bravado batsmen found the ECCCC bowling too much to handle.

Off-spinner Satesh Jainarine picked up 1-18, while K. Trapp topscored for Bravado with 49.

In reply, ECCCC coasted to victory at 155-6 from 28 overs with Khan leading the run-chase with a solid 45. Skipper Bheemraj Ramkellawan supported with 28, while former national wicket-keeper/batsman Shiek Mohamed chipped in with 24.

Khan was adjudged Man-of-the-Match and received a trophy and cricket shirt, while Hiralall received same for being the best bowler on the day. Trapp also collected a cricket shirt for his top score for Bravado.

Prizes were donated by Tiger Sports of Old Road, Enmore, East Coast Demerara. The victory was ECCCC’s third in a row as they previously defeated Mahaica and Helena.
