Victory For Cosmos Kings

May 16th, 2008
(Celebrating 26 Anniversary)- Cosmos Youth team, Cosmos Kings, chalked up a convincing six wicket victory over New York Region defending champions Tri State Youths at Gateway last Saturday in the NYR Youth Twenty/20 competition.

The 'Cosmos Kings' are new comers to the region’s youth program spearheaded by the hard-working Clifford Hinds. This competition will give the youths an opportunity to learn the game and engage in a meaningful pastime activity.

Tri State Youths who won the toss and elected to bat found themselves in some early trouble against the Kings pace attack of Dominic Gomes (1 for11 off 4 overs) and S. Islam (1 for 14 off 4 overs). Medium pacer Atiq Baksh then pushed Tri State further back with a military spell.

Baksh bowled a steady line, varying his pace well to account for two quick wickets to return with figures of 2 for 13 off 4 overs. Tri-state was in trouble at 70 for 8, however M. Ferrier (34) and B. Jaikaran (17) showed some resistance in the end to give their team a respectable 110 all out.

Cosmos Kings in reply made a steady start with opening batsman Lakeram (22) laying the foundation. With the score on 60 for 2 in 10th over, Kings stepped into aggressive mode losing another two wickets in the process. M. Farajee stuck around for a mature inning of 31 not out partnered by his captain Dominic Gomes who creamed a straight hit over mid off fence to seal a six wicket victory with four overs to spare.

Cosmos Kings manager Ricky Kissoon and coach Ashmul Ali were quite pleased with their team's performance. They shared the opinion that there are some very talented
young players in this team and this first year for the Kings will be a learning experience.

With some coaching, these players will be the ones to watch.

Cosmos Kings will play Commonwealth at Floyd Bennett at 12pm on Saturday. Cosmos will play River Valley next Sunday at Poughkeepsie.
