“The Heat Is On” Is Undefeated In Its Fourth Straight Game

By Vijay Chandarpal

July 25th, 2008
Newly formed “The Heat Is On” once more emerged victorious in its fourth game by defeating “Ravens” in a hard fought game at Basley Park on Rockaway last Sunday. Previously, they defeated Buccaneers, Cricket International and Falcons respectively. Captain Ravi Lall won the toss and after consultation with the players, decided to take the field. One would think that it was a poor decision for there was blazing sunshine and the weather was very humid which made Ravens very jubilant. In the first two overs, Ravens lost its opening pair with just 5 runs on the board and it seemed that “The Heat Is On” would be on a roll. Alas, this was not to be.

Sonna Harichand and Rocky Bansi resisted all the attack of its opposition and put on a tremendous partnership of 68 runs until captain Ravi Lall bowled Sonna after compiling 27 runs. Rocky Bansi continued to showed tremendous resilience and was finally defeated by young Romeo Constantine who got him caught after amassing 81 valuable runs. Ravens stayed the course and completed the allotted 30 overs by amassing 189 runs with the fall of 9 wickets. The pick of the bowlers were Ravi Lall with 2 for 21 runs and Dereck Sanichara with also 2 wickets for 23 runs. Strong support was also given by V. Dhaniram (Rishie) with 2 for 37, Dhaneshwar Dhaniram (Danny) with 2 for 34 and Romeo Constantine with 1 for 23 runs.

After being battered by the sun and humid condition, “The Heat Is On” faced an uphill task, but proved that they were equal to the task. The opening pair of Vijay Chandarpal (Manager) and Derek Sanichara (Vice Captain), showed their mettle by facing the brunt of Ravens bowling attack until Vijay Chandarpal was dismissed while making a rash shot during the 9th over after amassing 25 runs with the score on 46. Dhaneshwar Dhaniram (Danny) then joined Derek who continued his polished stroke play to compile 37 runs. Not to be outdone, Danny also compiled exactly 37 runs with some massive shots.

Newcomer, Martin Perry also joined in the fray and complied an accomplished 32 runs. At the close of play, Captain Ravi Lall and Romeo Constantine remained undefeated on 20 and 5 respectively. This is the second time that Ravi has been undefeated in four innings. Romeo, who is new to cricket, showed that he would be a force to be reckoned with in the future, for his bowling shows class and in the three innings that he participated, he could not have been defeated. V. Dhaniram (Rishie) was also among the runs with a quick fire 15 runs before being bowled while attempting to pull to square-leg. “The Heat Is On” showed that they are here to stay for they defeated Ravens within 26 overs with the fall of only 5 wickets in compiling the required 190 runs.

Manager, Vijay Chandarpal and Captain Ravi Lall congratulated their teammates on their resounding victory and challenged them to continue to apply themselves in the future games of “New York Softball Cricket League” 30 overs Cup competition sponsored by “The Novelty Financial Group”.
