NY Mayor's Cup
New York under 19 offspinner Keon Lake kept the pressure as he broke the resistive pairing of Daani and Waqqas, Waqqas holding out the Andre Kirton at long on. Dyon Ravello bowling medium pace bowled straight to keep the Punjab in check. Daani could not resist to the looping deliveries from Lake and he provided a replay of Waqqas’ earlier dismissal, holding out to Joseph. Kirton entered the attack to nab Babar bowl and caught, a skier, after Babar was put down in front of square on the on side the previous ball by Freeman. Punjab’s innings ended at 91 with Joseph scalping 3, Lewis, Lake and Kirton 2 each, and Ravello the innings closer with the last wicket.
Punjab came to the field with a pair of pacey seamers. Diplomats lost their first wicket with veteran Oscar Prince run out attempting to steal a single from short fine leg. The initial shy was at the strikers end but the ball went through to the bowler’s end, where the bowler whipped off the bail to catch Prince short of his ground. Freeman joined Ramphal at the wicket and looked in good knick as he stroked a cover drive to the boundary. But he faild to continue as he became victim number two leg before wicket.
and Ramphal, sensibly negotiated the pacey attack, as they took
the game further away from Punjab. Kirton lead by example with 37
not out following up his 61 not out in the previous game. Ramphal
closed on 36 not out as Diplomat strode comfortably home to victory
by 8 wickets. Kirton had another allround performance as he was
astute in the field with 2 catches, with the ball, as well as the
bat. Kirton again deservedly earned the man of the match. Diplomats
are developing a well tuned brand of cricket with a mixture of youth
and veteran doing well for each other. Diplomats have now improved
their record to 71 winning percentile, with 5 wins, 2 losses, and
1 match abandoned. Independence weekend approaches, with the US
under 19 travelling to Canada to take part in the Americas qualifying
tournament. However, club cricket continues with Diplomats facing
an interesting affair against Middlesex at Marine Park C on Independence
Day, July 4th.
