United Stars and Country Boys In Oscillate Game

By James Persaud

July 1st, 2009
Last Sunday in the first game of the New York Softball Cricket League 30 Over Cup competitions, United Stars and Country Boys set Baisley Park on fire with the most defensive game this writer have seen or participated in. It reminds me of the days in the old country when teams would score 2 runs and the opponent was unable to beat it. United Stars won the toss and elected to take first strike and before the spectators could settle into their seats, Ravi Bally was back into the pavilion without scoring being deceived by a ball from Y. Giddings. This set the stage for the remainder of United Stars batsmen who were troubled by Country Boys bowlers backed up by strong defense in the field. At the 15 overs break, United Stars was only able to score 55 runs. At the resumption things got worse for United Stars who was eventually all out for 64 runs with Vicky Dhanraj 10 runs and Sundar 11 runs. The pick of the Country Boys bowlers were Y. Giddings 3 wickets for 19 runs, Ivor Chan 4 for 5 runs and Aubrey Towler 2 for 6 runs.

When Country Boys took their turn in the middle, the only way to describe it is catastrophic. United Stars bowlers rose to the occasion with the attitude "whatever you can do we could do one better". Accurate and fiery bowling led by Bobby Pahalad and Dharampaul Singh ensure that United Stars was not going without a fight. At one point it seems that United Stars opening bowlers would be the only bowlers needed but Country Boys middle order batsmen began to stand and brace like the rock of Gibraltar. Country Boys was eventually all out for 51 runs falling 14 runs short of the target. The only batsman that stood tall for Country Boys was Y. Giddings 11 runs not out (after a monster spell with the ball). The top bowlers for United Stars were Bobby Pahalad 4 wickets for 7 runs and Bhola Pahalad 2 for 10 runs. In the end the team that was able to take advantage at pivotal juncture in the game was able to come out on top. Good luck to both teams.

Ravin Gopaul of Eagles hit a beautiful 112 against Bronx Lions.

Eagles blast into Bronx Lions with a thumping
The Eagles team won Sunday by a huge 128 runs and 7 wickets. After a late start the match was reduced to 25 overs, Eagles winning the toss, choose to bat first, after a bad start of 28 for 4, captain Alvin Gopaul and Ravin Gopaul put on a blazing partnership of 171 runs, with Alvin Gopaul scoring 59 and Ravin Gopaul a magnificent 112 runs. Ravin century came with an amazing 12 fours and 9 sixes, in a suburb display of timing and stroke play he was well supported by Alvin’s 59 which included 9 fours. Both players put on an excellent batting display which was creed by a well entertained audience.

Bronx Lions never had a partnership going due to excellent bowling from R. Durga who took 4 wickets and Captain Alvin Gopaul with 3 wickets, backed up by Vishal Singh and Ravin Gopaul with 1 wicket each. Final score Eagles 217 for 4 off 25 overs, Bronx Lions all out for 95 in 15 overs.
