October 4, 2008 – Baisley Pond Park, Jamaica
Inclement weather forced postponement of the 3rd Legends of Port Mourant, Inc. cricket match from September 27, 2008 to October 4, 2008. Though the weather prognosticators forecasted sunshine, early morning cloudiness and a brief shower sent a chill down the coordinator’s (Ray Sundar) spine. However, around 10.30 A.M. the dark, dismal, gloomy cloud which hung over the field of play began to dissipate and sunshine predominated. Temperature hovered in the low 60’s.

The lush green surrounding the pitch seemed inviting. The nearby lake and the swans, ducks and geese made one feel as though he/she is communing with nature.

Mahadeo Ajodi’s Connecticut U-17 11 was all set to lock horns with New York City Coaching School U-17 11, managed by Joe Siewharack.

Starting an hour late, batting first New York scored 116 for the loss of 9 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Z. Khan slammed 2x4s in his top score of 16. K. Narine contributed 11. A. Bilal and Patel were the pick of the bowlers, taking 2 wickets each. U-15 spin maestro, Andrew Ajodi, 15, chipped in with 1 wicket. Andrew performed sensationally well in Bermuda in the summer in the ICC Americas tournament, mesmerizing and outflummoxing the opposition.

In response Connecticut managed 102 for 9 in the allotted 20 overs. Chad Monroe, affectionately referred to as Chris Gayle, clobbered 2x4s and a mighty 6 in his top score of 26. S. Sawh contributed 19. C. Rose took 3 wickets.

The lanky Chad Monroe was adjudged Man of the Match. In addition to his 26, he took 1 wicket. He was rewarded with a bat for his efforts. All the other players received gloves, forearm guards or private guards.

Ray Sundar, president of Legends of Port Mourant, Inc., congratulated Harry Brijlall (and the team), the winning captain, and presented the Legends Trophy to him. Mr.Siewharack, Mr. Hurley, president of the Coaching School, and Mr. Mahadeo commended the youngsters for their commitment to the match, playing in less than perfect weather and advised them to continue applying themselves and put forth their best effort.
