Guyanese and King’s X1 Through to VPL Finals

There was real excitement at the Hardtimes Play field on Sunday 5th May, as the semifinal encounters for the Village Premier Cricket league, took place.
In game one, defending champions the Guyanese team, won the toss and decided to send the SDA Jets team into bat.
An early flurry of boundaries by Morton Sr and Jr, got the Jets off to a flyer and then came the mix up between the two and Morton Jr was unfortunately run out.
Morton Sr followed shortly thereafter to a stunner of a catch by wicketkeeper Annand, diving full-length to his left.
The Jets team struggled but then Zavero Forbes took over the back end of the innings, with a flurry of boundaries of his own, to get the Jets to a defendable 109 in their 12 overs.
The Guyanese team started with Alvin and Rakeesh who went on to score a sizeable partnership for their team. However, the Jets team let themselves down badly in the field, with Rakeesh mistumped in the first over bowled by Curtis Morton Jr and Alvin floored twice, from consecutive deliveries off Curtis Morton Sr.
When Alvin and Rakeesh departed, the Jets team tightened the screws, as the Guinea’s team struggled to get the remaining ruins required.
However, they just managed to get over the line in the 11th over and secured their spot in the finals.
Man of the match-Zavero Forbes.
In match two, the JahBass team batted first against the King’s X1 and were off to a shaky start.
However, Bernette NUTSY- BUFFALO SOLDIER Thompson, swung his bat lustily for 26, to get them to a decent score of 118.
However, the King’s X1 had prepared for the big day and had summoned extra help in Adelvin Phillip and Jason Campbell.
Adelvin Phillip smashed the ball to all parts of the grounds to thrill the crowd with 73 and the King’s X1 got to the target in the 10th over, for the loss of just three wickets.
King’s X1 into the finals and Adelvin Phillip, the undisputed man of the match.
The grand final is now set for Sunday 12th May with SDA Jets scheduled to engage the Jahbass team at 1.30 pm for the 3rd place and at 3 pm the King’s X1 will take on defending champions, the Guyanese.
