Cosmos Spice It Up

Cosmos build on a solid ninety-four runs opening partnership between Shafeek Shah (19) and Martin Nurse in only eleven overs. When Nurse, a former Barbados national player, was poorly adjudged lbw, he had stroked a blistering 88 (11-4s, 3-6's) in only 53 balls. Surujballi stroked an aggressive 58 off just 36 balls and while Williams solid in defense kept the runs ticking, the pair construct a third wicket partnership of 105 runs in just 70 balls.

Williams (108 no) then took the lead role after Surujballi departed, he cut, pulled and unleashed a few lusty drives to bring up a well crafted century and another good partnership of102 runs for the fifth wicket with young Imran Mohamed (23) to give Cosmos a massive 337 for 5 in their 4 overs. It was a good effort from Cosmos batsmen; even the veteran Wayne Stuger got into the action with a solitary run to highlight the end of the inning.

Cosmos then kept this opposition on the back foot with a fiery combination of fast bowling from Darlington and Nurse. The promising Shafeek Shah was equal brilliant with the glove accounting for three scalps. Darlington's pace was quite intimidating as he moved the ball away from the batsman finding the edge on three occasions taking 3 for 22 in his spell.

It was not easier from the other end either. An athletic looking Nurse dismantle the woodwork three times, taking the mid stump ten paces on one occasion. Cosmos youth sensation Dominic Gomes looked inspired by his teammates was equally as hostile. It was torrid time for a new look Spice Island team. Only G. Hall managed 27 and K. Hopkins 14, in Spice's 116 all out.

Cosmos captain Ricky Kissoon managed his team well while Cosmos members continued enjoy on a discipline and amicable atmosphere.
