Archer beat Tamarind Root by one wicket at Alley Park last Sunday in WISA’s Division I 30 Overs competition. Four hundred runs scored and nineteen wickets tumbled in this ‘nail bite’ of a thriller.

Tamarind Root batted first and was bowled out for a challenging 199 off 26.4 overs. Apart from R. Sukhdeo’s 47, R. Armogan’s 25 and J. Madramootoo’s 22, extras top scored with 55. Archer’s bowlers were not in control with their line and that resulted in 33 runs via wides.

P. Bhadrasan took two wickets for seventeen runs while M. Yassin and K. Gagraj captured one wicket apiece. Archer’s good fielding and Tamarind Toot’s less than stellar running between the wickets resulted in four wickets via the run out route.

Archer replied with 201 for 9 off 28.5 overs. S. Tirloki top scored with a whirlwind 94. His superb knock contained 14 sixes and a four. His knock was the highlight of the game but the batting of Kishawn Gagraj and Wallis Khan brought Archer close to the winning score before they departed for 46 and 18 respectively.

Kishawn’s inning contained 3 sixes and 4 fours. This youngster is a star in the making. He is an excellent all round cricketer.

H. Balram and J. Madramootoo captured two wickets apiece while S. Bhairoo and A. Charitar took one wicket apiece.

With this win, Archer should climb out of last place in the points standing and at the same time, knock off some of Tamarind Root’s invincibility.

Richmond Hill Sports Club Corner
Richmond Hill made ‘light-work’ of Avengers

Richmond Hill Sports Club beat Avengers by 197 runs last weekend at Pals Oval in the West Indian Softball Association’s, 30 Overs Premier Division Competition.

Avenger won the toss and after a lengthy deliberation, decided to put Richmond Hill in to bat. Richmond Hill amassed a whopping 253 for 9 off their allotted 30 overs. Eight of Richmond Hill’s batsmen got into double figures. Ahmad Shazaman (Zaman) top scored with 75.

Zaman’s 75 came after by a swashbuckling 106 not out earlier in a Muslim League game at Corona’s Flushing Meadows Park. Imran Wahab and Bridgelall Heralall (max) contributed with 41 and 27 respectively. R. Ramgoolam, R. Ramnarine and Kenny Bulkan all took two wickets apiece.

Avengers replied with 56 all out. Kenny Bulkan made a defiant 23. J. Hemraj took four wickets for 11 runs from six overs. He was ably supported by Zaman who took three wickets for two runs from two overs.

The highlight of the game was the fielding of Gibran Wahab (Gibby) at the backward point position. Gibby took four catches and affected a run out. Apart from Zaman’s sterling all round performance, Gibby stole the day’s proceedings with his ability to catch all that came his way.
