Snipers pulled off a comfortable 26-run victory against Bhagaloo Strikers on Monday in their round robin fixture of the 2014 Lendore Village Sports & Cultural Club annual Windball Cricket Tournament.
Staged under lights at the Chrissie Terrace Recreation Ground in Enterprise, Snipers chalked up 82 for the loss of seven wickets off their allotted ten overs with Roshan Sinanan scoring a match-high 25 runs and B Seelal contributing 16.
Adrian Emmanuel snared three wickets for 14 runs to be the pick of the bowlers for Bhagaloo.
In their turn at the crease Bhagaloo got an unbeaten 24 from Emmanuel but the rest of their batting failed to fire as they were restricted to 56 for 5. Two very economical bowling spells from R Persad (two for eight) and B Ramdial (two for ten) laid the foundation for Snipers’ victory.
In the evening’s other match, Goodwill United scored a six-wicket win over Enterprise Life Sport.
Batting first Enterprise could only muster 56 for nine off 10 overs with Ainsley County striking a team-high 14.
Nigel Latouche had a miserly spell in which he snared three wickets for four runs while Russell Churchman provided good assistance with figures of three for 13 off his two overs.
At one point United seemed to be making heavy weather of their run chase but eventually got home at 57 for four with three balls to spare.
Ricky “Ratman” Ramlochan kept the innings together with a well-played 21 not out. Janelle Phillip impressed with the ball in a losing cause, picking up two wickets for 14.
