Rawlins Overpower Guyanese in Thriller

Action resumed at the Hardtimes recreation grounds on Sunday 18th August, with an exciting match, between the Guyanese team and home team Rawlins.

Chief coordinator Michael WISE Herbert was quick to point out that it was not a tournament per se but only a means of giving people somewhere to go on a Sunday afternoon and a bid to keep the community together.

The Guyanese team engaged the Rawlins team in a 12 overs a side contest, which commenced around 3.45 pm.

The Rawlins team batted first and scored a competitive 114 in their allotted overs, with Curtis Morton Sr getting an aggressive 52 and Wes Huggins, an explosive 27.

When the Guyanese team started their response, Alvin seemed bent on finishing the match in a hurry. He took 32 runs from the first over, bowled by Carlon Smithen.  He got two runs from the first delivery and then hit the next five out of the grounds for maximums.

It looked as if the Guyanese team had the game all wrapped up.

However, Keith Herbert pulled things back in the next over, actually getting a wicket and a brave Carlon Smithen, came back to bowl two more overs and picked up a few wickets in the process, one of which was Alvin, brilliantly caught by Ahiedre Hendrickson at cover point.

Thereafter, the Guyanese team struggled badly and eventually succumbed at 86 all out, in the 12th over.

Alvin top scored with 56 and no other batsman got into double figures.

Michael Herbert announced after the match, that a three-match competition, will now commence between the two teams, starting next Sunday, 25th of August, for a grand trophy.

The general public is cordially invited out to witness some exciting cricket and be entertained, as DJ PAPER will also be in the house.
