Liberty Knights Cruise To Victory

The Suresh Ramsarran managed Liberty Knights recorded their third consecutive victory when they defeated the Better Hope Cricket Club last Sunday at the Livonia Recreational Park.

Winning the toss and electing to bat in overcast conditions, Better Hope got off to a confident start before they lost the first of three batsmen via the run out route due to some excellent fielding from a much improved Liberty Knights team. Only K. Sanichar and Rajpal showed any resistance hitting 29 and 28 runs respectively.

Better Hope were eventually bowled out for 130 in 24.3 overs. Shaun and Ganesh Prashad grabbed 2 wickets each. Krishna Persaud also got into the act, picking up 1 for 7 from five economical overs.

Chasing a tricky total, Liberty Knights started their innings aggressively with their openers playing some cracking shots around the park before both perished in quick succession.

The Knights top four batsmen all got good starts but fell in their quest for quick runs. Brian Manniram slammed a quick 31 while Dost Mangru remained unbeaten on 21. Skipper Shaun, playing a captain’s knock, also remained unbeaten on 25 to lead his team to victory in 19.4 overs with 5 wickets remaining.

In division 2A news, Liberty Boys defeated Ranchers to record their third victory in as many matches. No scores were available.
