Nedd spurs DCC to 40-over ti­tle

Stabroek News Sunday - - SPORT -

West Indies Un­der-19 left-arm spin­ner Ash­mead Nedd yes­ter­day pro­duced a Man-of-the-Match per­for­mance with both bat and ball to spur De­mer­ara Cricket Club (DCC) to a 49-run win over-arch ri­vals Ge­orge­town Cricket Club (GCC) in the fi­nal of the sixth New Build­ing So­ci­ety/ Ge­orge­town Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion 40-overs sec­ond-di­vi­sion tour­na­ment at their Queen­stown club ground.

DCC lost the toss and were sent in to bat, post­ing 183 all out in 38.1 overs. They then re­stricted GCC to 134 all out in 36.3 overs.

DCC got of a hor­rid start with Steven Sankar fail­ing to score. But Sachin Singh made the most of be­ing dropped twice, once at slip and once at point to top score with 39 from 45 balls with two sixes and three fours.

Ray­mond Perez chipped in with 34 from 42 balls but DCC plunged from 5100 to 9-143 be­fore Nedd, with a com­posed 29 and Gar­rick Per­saud, bat­ting at num­ber 11 con­trib­uted 25 not out with two sixes, one of which was off of a free hit that went onto the road.

Spin­ners, Gavin Singh (3-42) and Chetram Per­saud (3-34) were the main wicket tak­ers while Ron­aldo AliMo­hammed took 2-34.

the three-time cham­pi­ons be­gan their re­ply by pro­mot­ing Joshua Wade to the top of the or­der but the ex­per­i­ment back­fired as he was bowled by Den­nis Squires.

GCC never re­cov­ered apart from a 47run part­ner­ship be­tween Deonar­ine See­gobin and Singh. How­ever, that was bro­ken with Singh at­tempt­ing to sweep a de­liv­ery from Nedd only to be trapped leg be­fore wicket for 22.

See­gobin car­ried on but Nedd would re­move the big scalp of Ali-Mo­hammed who was dropped twice in two balls but held out to long off.

See­gobin car­ried on to fin­ish un­beaten on 53 while Nedd ended with 4-22.
