West Indian Softball Association (WISA) Week 2 – Round Up
Premier Elite Division

It’s early in the season, but signs are that there will be some very exciting cricket with a lot of upsets and surprises. Wild Bunch CC is either for real or they will be one of the few surprises in the 2008 season. They beat a formidable Rebels CC by 69 runs to be the only unbeaten team. Safadur made a well played 68.

In the other two games, Ocean XI lost to Majestics by 14 runs while Dynasty beat Warriors by 9 wickets for their first win.

Cornered Tigers ‘Tamed’ Royals CC
Under cool and overcast conditions at Corona Park in Flushing, Cornered Tigers beat Royals to remain the only unbeaten team in the Premier Division. Electing to bat first after winning the toss, Cornered Tigers was in early trouble losing their first two wickets for nine runs.

A brief third wicket stand of 19 give them a little breathing room but they were reeling again at 36 for 4 after 7 overs. V. Singh and Z. Samad batted without reckless abandonment and put on fifth wicket partnership of 41 runs before they went for 28 and 19 respectively.

Royals struck four times and Cornered Tigers was cornered again at 85 for 8 after 15 overs. Knowing that they need to consolidate, Cornered Tigers’ N. Khan & S. Kayoum batted freely and took the score to 104 before losing the wicket of Kayoum.

S. Khan joined N. Khan but was unable to provide the support needed. Cornered Tigers were bowled out for 113. N. Khan was left not out on 14. R. Barron, V. Samaru & S.Ramsumer all took two wickets a piece for Royals CC.

Needing a manageable 114, Royals opened their batting with M. Singh and G. Sundar. Sundar was run out early a for 3. S. Ramsumer joined M. Singh and was immediately bowled by S. Persaud. Royals were in trouble at 5 for 2.

R. Barron and Singh batted with a sense of purpose and for a while Royals looked good at 38 for 2 at the end of the eight over. F. Samad got the wicket of Barron for 16 and Royals was back on their heels at 41 for 3. V. Sakichand provided solitary support to Singh but managed just 11 runs.

Once, Singh went to S. Persaud, Royals’ hopes of winning the rested squarely on the shoulders of V. Samwaru. Samwaru hit two sixes in his 16 but he was out at the score of 89. At 89 for 6 in the 15th over, Royals was thought to be in good shape but their last four wickets fell for a meager 7 runs. They were stunned – bowled out for 96 runs.

S. Persaud took 4 for 13 while S. Kayoum and F. Samad bagged three wickets apiece.

Richmond Hill Unbeaten Streak Ends
Richmond Hill Sports Club saw their short but unbeaten streak end at the hands of United last Sunday at Baisley Park. Electing to bat first after winning the toss and , Enforcing Law # 2 - “Fielder absent or leaving the field”, where If he is absent for 15 minutes or longer, he shall not be permitted to bowl thereafter, until he has been on the field for at least that length of playing time for which he was absent”. United put together 156 for nine off their allotted 25 overs. They did not allow any of Richmond Hills’ three players who showed up half an hour after the game began, to bowl until the required elapsed time of an additional half an hour.

Taking advantage of that and some sloppy fielding and bowling from Richmond Hill, United pieced together their total with contributions of 55 extras, 22 from A. Ali and 20 from N. Basil. J. Hemraj and B. Heralall (Max) took two wickets apiece.

Richmond began their reply badly and was soon 40 for 4 in the eight over before Kumar Chickery and Imran Wahab put on 41 for the fifth wicket.Wahab was out with the last ball before the break for 15. Krishna Chickery joined Kumar and they carried the score to 106 when Kumar was caught at midwicket for a patient 32. Richmond Hill would lose their next four wickets for a paltry 13 runs and hence, the game. T. Singh bagged 3 for 27 while Troy Singh and Amar Singh bowled well for two wickets apiece.
