Enmore Masters Sweep Superstar XI
Over-40 Enmore Masters made a clean sweep of their two-match softball series against Superstar XI, emerging with convincing victories in the home and away format.
Playing at the Enmore Community Centre ground on June 30, Enmore Masters stitched together a four-wicket victory with seven balls to spare. Batting first, Superstar XI, a Mahaica-based team, racked up 160-8 from the stipulated 20 overs. Enmore Masters then knocked off the target, reaching 161-6 from 18.5 overs. G Dayaram led Enmore Masters to victory with an unbeaten 54, while Jacob Persaud (42*) and R. Malone (26) offered support during the chase.
On Sunday last in the return game at the Helena ground, Enmore Masters coasted to a six-wicket win, thanks to a good all-round effort. Superstar XI, batting first, posted a meagre 80 all out with none of their batsmen getting among the runs in the face of some miserly bowling. Anil Persaud was the principal wicket taker, bagging 5-12, while Chetram Ramlall snared 3-16. Enmore Masters responded with 81-4 in 12 overs to complete the easy win.
S Panday and Jacob Persaud were the leading scorers with 16 and 12 respectively. The Enmore Masters are expected to be in action again on Friday in a floodlight encounter against a team to be named.
