2012 Carib Beer Division 1 T20

A brilliant knock of 71 from Guyana T20 batsman Jonathan Foo led Albion Community Centre to victory over Port Mourant Karibee Rice in their final Zone C preliminary match of the 2012 Carib Beer First Division T20 Cricket Competition in Berbice.

Albion gained enough points to end up as one of the top two teams of that zone and earned a place in the play-off.

In the match which was played at Port Mourant, Albion Community Centre, choosing to take first strike, lost former Guyana Under-19 batsman Kandasammy Surujnarine with only 7 runs on the board.

However Foo joined Veerapen Permaul and together they put on 53 before Permaul went for 26. The Guyana Captain Veerasammy Permaul came in and he and Foo added another 75 between them in 8.5 overs after which Foo departed for 71 which included 4 fours and 4 sixes. With Permaul going on to make 29 and former West Indies cricketer Devendra Bishoo 16 n.o. Albion closed at 156 for 5 in their 20 overs.

Bowling for Port Mourant Karibee Rice, former West Indies Under-19 allrounder Zamal Khan, bowling off-spin took 2 for 22 from 3 overs.

When Port Mourant responded they were given a fine start of 43 runs in 6 overs from former Guyana Under-19 captain Harrinarine Chattergoon and Joshua Ramsammy. After that, however, the Albion spinners tightened the screws and made runs hard to come by. Port Mourant could only crawl to 120 for 5 in their 20 overs with Chattergoon top-scoring with 33, Zamal Khan 30 and Boughnarine Persaud 20.
