Elizabeth Styles Under-19 50-Over Cricket competition…

A brilliant all-round performance from Akram Rahaman and a six-wicket haul from medium pacer, Abdool Subhan, led Chowramootoo’s Construction Blairmont Community Centre to a massive 200-run victory over Bath in the Elizabeth Styles Under-19 50-Over cricket competition in Berbice.

Akram Rahaman

When Blairmont batted, Rahaman slammed an unbeaten 96, which included five fours and four sixes, spearheading them to 241-9 in 40 overs in their rain affected game. When Bath replied, they ran up against the opening pace attack of Subhan and Baksh who between them bowled out Bath for a paltry 41 with Subhan picking up 6-17 from five overs and Rahaman 4-24 from six overs, which included a hat-trick.

Meanwhile in another game, after Young Warriors rattled up 176-6 in 20 overs in another rain-shortened match against Sisters Warriors, who in their reply had slumped to 50-5, Guyana under-19 cricketer, Linden Austin, bowling off spin, snapped up the last five wickets for just one run to leave them 62 all out.

Bush Lot New Generation opening pacer, Randy Singh’s 4-31 went a long way to help restrict Rainbow Generation of Seafield to 129. However, Rainbow Generation’s offspinner, Derwin Nelson and Grayson Grant, picked up 4-14 and 3-8 respectively to bowl out Bush Lot for a paltry 55 in reply.

Opening fast bowler, Nicholas Seenarine, took 5-16, which together with 3-17 from his fellow pacer, Aslam Baksh, helped Skeldon Community Centre bowl out Progressive Youth of Crabwood Creek for 38. When Skeldon replied, Progressive Youth left arm spinner, Kevin Grannum, took 4-6 from four overs but Skeldon won by six wickets.
