Marlon Persaud (l) 4/22 and And Harricharran (r) 98 lead Liberty back to winners row

In the match of the week Richmond Hill CC entertained American Cricket Society (ACS or ACS/Everest) at the league’s most popular venue, “The Cage.” Richmond Hill piled on 261/7 with former US National Batsman Sudesh Dhaniram stoking a 78 ball hundred. Imran Alli built off the early momentum to close off the innings in a flurry with 51 from 23 balls. ACS defending double crown champs did no justice to their title defense as Kevin Darlington scalped three wicket alongside the many destroyer Kumar Nandalall who picked up five. ACS all out for 151, to lose their first on the season, to add to points dropped in two rounds where play was not possible. Richmond Hill’s 110 run victory evening up their record with ACS to 2-2 oover the last two seasons, to remain unbeaten this term.

Liberty SC returned to winning ways with a win over Allstars. In what should have been a straightforward victory, the Blue Nation were made to work for the spoils. Andy Harricharran continued his rich vein off form falling two runs short of his hundred. Terrence Madramootoo contributed 36 as Liberty posted a competitive 197 all out in 37.4 overs. S Ahmed 4/20, J Hussain 2/32, and Dhaval Patel had the best efforts with the ball for Allstars. Allstars batted a bal more than Libery did, but their run rate was closer to four per over rather than Liberty’s near five. Allstars had cameo’s from Hussain 39, R Kellawan 36, Z baig 21 and R Faruque 20. Thakur Singh started the top order slide with 3/35 with Marlon Persaud finishing off the middle and lower order with 4/22. Allstars 159 all out felling short by 38 runs. Liberty’s win couple with ACS’ loss, saw the Blue Nation move into third, with the perennial giants slipping to fourth ACS poorest start for in a decade.

At the picturesque Lido Beach, Atlantis and Galaxy lost 10 overs due to inclement weather. Batting first the Atlantis posted 187 allout with Alex Amsterdam 38,  Ron Andrews 35 and Kaveshwar Bridgpaul 32 all getting starts. A Rambharack 3/23 and Ryan Girdharry 3/43 maintained a procession from the middle to the dug out for Galaxy. Galaxy who were dubbed to be challengers to the EACA establishment of yesteryear, failed yet again to live up to the preseason bill. Galaxy were restricted by some miserly bowling from Casper Davis Jr 6-2-12-1 and Alex Amsterdam 6-0-13-2. Girdharry continued to be Galaxy’s swansong topscoring with 47 alongside captain Sunesh Wazid with 22. Greg Robinson 2/17  and Prashant Nair 3/27 completed the 54 run victory as Galaxy could only manage 133 with eight delivery to spare. In Zone II other encounter Eastside Warriors chalked up their second win on the season surpassing their 2012 returns.

In Zone II MMZ kept pace with Zone I leader Richmond Hill to be to only clubs yet to be beaten. MMZ scored an imposing 245/2 against Falcons. Deonauth Baksh became the third centurions for his side this term with an unbeaten 105. Richie Sieuchan maintained poll position on the batting tables stroke a half-century (55). Falcons made a match of the total similar to their last meeting. Zulfiqar Alli (45) lead the challenge with cameos from S Deopal 28, and the Shamsundar brothers of  Komal and Mark with 25 and 24 respectively. For MMZ the wickets with distribute with skipper Azurdeen Mohammed leading with an economical display of 8-3-13-2. Siechan had 2/43 and Saumil Gandhi 2/48 to give their side a 26 run victory as Falcon posted 219.

Big Apple rebounded from the shock of the season against Centurion, to inflict Hillside’s second consecutive defeat. Zaheer Saffie lead his side with 57, with Andre Kirton 35, Telston Johnson 23 and Romeno Dean 20, as Big Apple posted 211/9. Zamal Khan was the pick of the bowlers for Hillside with 3/47, Latch, Lalisa and Roopnarine had a wicket each. The sixth round turned out to be one of the more competitive weekends in the EACA as Hillside fancied their chances in chasing 212. N Basdeo 47 and Captain Khan 39 were the main scorers. The day did not belong to Hillside as Kirton’s (8-0-14-3) precise slow left arm bowling setting back the opposition early up. Shiv Raghubir 2/23 stemmed the run flow through the middle of the innings as Hillside closed on 185/9 to lose by 26 runs.

Closing on the weekend Camelot and Arsenal continued their winning ways, to open up a four way tight for second on points. Big Apple, Arsenal, Hillside and Camelot all locked on 17 points.
