Bobcat of Berbice Second Division Cricket Competition…

The Bobcat of Berbice Second Division 20/20 cricket competition, organised by the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB) for clubs in the East Bank Berbice, New Amsterdam/Canje and East Coast areas continued recently with former Guyana Under-19 all-rounder, Joemal LaFleur, turning in a fine all-round performance. This helped his team, Tucber Park of New Amsterdam, defeat Police in a second round encounter to gain a bye into the semi-final.

He first took 3 for 15 from three overs when Police were dismissed for 131 for 8 in 20 overs. When Tucber replied, he held the inning together with 69 (9×4) to steer the team to 132 for 6 in 19.3 overs with no other batman getting past nine, including West Indies female cricketer, Tremayne Smartt who made eight.

After Kendall’s Union of East Berbice were set a target of 120 to win by Glasgow New Scheme of East Bank Berbice, their middle order batsman, Ravin Seecharran with 54 (3×4, 4×6) and Chris Yadram with 47, put on 90 between them for the fourth wicket to see their team home by three wickets.

Shafeek Khan’s 48 (4×4, 2×6) for Edinburg went in vain as his team went down to Young Warriors by 12 runs.
