Dewitt Clinton and Aviation, Only Two Prefect Records Left In PSAL
by Dyon Ravello,
Spring season continued in the Public School’s Athletic League Cricket with unbeaten John Adams hosting rivals Hillcrest. Visitors Hillcrest won the toss and inserted the Spartans to take first strike. The encounter began with much intensity as the Spartan openers pressed quick singles. Hillcrest were also playing to the crescendo as Spartans lost their first wicket via the run out route after just six (6) deliveries.
There was a tempered pace to the proceeding with neither the batting side of the fielding looking to grasp a firm initiative. Skipper Jason Rodney struck, as Mervin Heywood was caught at Mid-off by Syed Farkruzzaman. Deryck Narine looked to lead his side as he had done this season as he struck four boundaries. Narine looked fluent aiming for a possible thrid century on the season. Hasib Imrul scalped the Spartan captain as he let one through the gates, Narine (27) bowled.
It was one-way traffic from there on as John Adams folded for a paltry 56 in 14.1 overs. Hasib Imrul leading Hillcrest with four wickets and Farkruzzaman two.
John Adams were not daunted as they display a gallant effort in attempting to keep their flawless record intact. Skipper Narine started with a maiden off the first over. Hillcrest had consolidated their innings as they contended with the swing of Heywood and the pinpoint accuracy of Tazul Uddin and Randy Permaul. Even with the score at 18/2 after nine (9) over, Nicholas Harriepersaud and Abul Juwel made their partnership count as the fended off all Spartan attempts to claim victory with 13 balls to spare. A low scoring encounter with the intensity and passion of a cup final with Hillcrest prevailing by eight (8) wickets
