A gathering of about seventy five people, mostly family and friends of the late Seenanan Chickery (August 19, 1936 – June 10, 2004) came out to support the Chickery family as they have done over the past four years at Alley ‘Pond’ Park in Eastern Queens.

The day’s proceedings started with a brief address by Darshan Chickery then by a moment of silence to honor his late father who was a huge cricket fan.

This annual symbolic feature was first played on Labor Day weekend in 2004 between Queens Village Cricket Club and West Demerara. Ravi Parbhudial was very instrumental in organizing it and to this day, remains an active part of what has become an annual fixture on the Sunday of every Labor Day weekend.

Last Sunday, the Ravi Parbhudial lead Queens Village CC took on Richmond Hill Sports Club whom the Chickery brothers (Krishna, Darshan & Kumar) play for on a regular basis. In this game, it does not matter which team the brothers play with. Darshan played for Queens Village last week while Krishna and Kumar ‘knocked’ with Richmond Hill.

Queens Village won the toss and batted first. They amassed 171 all in the allotted 25 overs. Rafael Chunilall top scored with 41 while B. Heralall (Max) contributed a swashbuckling 36 that contained four 6’s and a four. Wazim Asrula, Brial Heerelal and Imran Wahab each took two wickets apiece.

Richmond Hill replied with 137 all out in twenty two overs. A. Ahazaman top scored with 58. Max and V. Singh had figures of 4 wickets for 6 runs and 4 wickets for 21 runs respectively. Ravi supported them with 2 for 11.

At the presentation, the two teams were recognized with trophies for participating. Individual performance for the following were also bestowed upon: A. Shazaman for the highest individual score (58), V. Singh for the best bowling (4 for 21) and B. Heralall (Max) for the Man of the Match award (4 wickets for 6 and scoring 36).

After the game, the players of both teams and supporters of the Memorial Game were thanked by the Chickery family for participating.

The fifth anniversary game will be played on the Sunday of the Labor Day weekend in 2009, at Alley Pond Park in Eastern Queens.
