Gandhi Youth Organisation (GYO) were defeated by Malteenoes Sports (MSC) in the second semi-final of the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) Brainstreet Cup 50-overs Under-15 cricket competition.

MSC batted first and scored 139 for 8 in 29.2 overs after the game was reduced to 30 overs per side due to rain. Rockell Reddy top-scored with 46 from 52 balls and got support from Guyana Under-15 leg-spinner Steven Sankar, who made 43 from 28 balls. Abdool Nazir took 5 for 13 from 3.2 overs for GYO. When GYO batted they lost National Under-15 opener Tagenarine ‘Brandon’ Chanderpaul in the first over, bowled by Nicolai Reddy with the score on 5.

GYO never recovered and were dismissed for 99. Dwayne De Barros made 21 and Navendra Seeraj 20 as Sankar returned with the ball to take 3-13 from 4.5 overs. Richards (2-28) supported for MSC who advanced to the final which is scheduled for Saturday at a venue to be confirmed.
