New York Softball Cricket League April 19th Round-Up
Liberty Knights Won The Rematch Against United Star

By James Persaud

April 22nd, 2009
It was another exciting week for NYSCL softball cricket as the old tigers seem to have or are losing their stripes and the young lions continue to roar. For the second week straight Assassins and Braveheart lost, Hustlers, Cavaliers and Country Boys won. The biggest upset for the weekend was the trashing United Stars took from Liberty Knights.

In the middle of the 2007 season Liberty Knights won their division and they made the move to the Premier division. There were many specious ranting from the other teams who had already established themselves in this division. It is only the second week of the season and too soon to tell if Liberty Knights could continue to do as well for the long haul.

But Liberty Knights has to get some credit as they have won against teams that have played superb in the past and defeating these teams show that they has what it takes to win. If Liberty Knights had any chance of success it was surely dependent on their manager Suresh Ramsarran, a small man with a big heart and strong desire to win. Mr. Ramsarran work on improving his team in the off season and it seems as if he has finale find the right mix, putting out a product that smells like all winning glory.

Liberty Knights took their trouncing and kept on ticking, they made the playoffs a few times just to lose in the first round. Last season Bhola Pahalad set a new softball bowling record taking 9 wickets for 14 runs against them.

This past Sunday’s game was like a rematch between these teams and both teams were eager to get started. On a cold windy Sunday mid afternoon, it seemed as if the wind was blowing even more on the United Stars camp, it was quiet as the players bit their nails. Getting to the park at first sight you would think it was the weather but after a quick look at the score book, you would have seen destruction in progress, with United Stars reeling at 5 wickets down for 28 runs.

After United Stars lost their seventh wicket it looked as if getting to fifty runs would be impossible. But a solid fifty runs, eight wicket partnership between G. Persaud 43 not out and Frankie Baichoo with 12 made them see past the three figure mark.

With a score of 115 United Stars knew they were still in the game and hoping for an early break through, but this was not possible as the Liberty Knights batsmen had plans of their own. Amar Singh batting at number two played with patience and very carefully selecting his shots stroking the ball to top score with 44 runs in the game.

Canal Make Easy Work of Cotton Field
Canal continues to dominate their division and made it two wins straight winning easily against Cotton Field. Cotton Field won the toss and asked Canal to bat; the first ball of the game by Kalif was struck to the boundary by David Umadhan. The next ball removed the off stump of Umadhan, in the second over bowled by Ramesh; he had Danny Singh caught driving without scoring. With two new batsmen at the crease Vinod and Hariprashad the two batted with patience knowing that they had to stay and build the innings. Cotton Field was only able to get one more wicket that of Vinod (13) before the break and Canal on 104 runs.

Canal vice-captain Hariprashad struck a brilliant 77 against Cotton Field last Sunday.

Hariprashad was severe on the loose ball and sending them to the boundary as his total raced to 77, with four overs remaining he batted as if looking for a century and went for big shot and was caught on the long on boundary.

The Cotton Field bowlers must be given some credit for restricting the Canal innings to a 167 all out because at one point it looked as if they would have easily got to the two hundred mark.

Cotton Field send Tyrone Singh and Ramesh to open their innings, both batted well especially Singh. Canal was only able to separate the two after seven overs and 42 runs in the book. Once this partnership was broken Rishi Dukhi wrecked the Cotton Field innings taking 5 wickets for 17 runs and ending the game in the nineteenth over and a total of 104 all out.
