Man­dolall named top bats­man in Canada’s OMSCC tour­na­ment

Weekend Mirror - - CHILDREN’S CORNER -


Guyana youth crick­eter Roven­dra Man­dolall said he is de­lighted to be the top bats­man in this year’s On­tario Masters Soft­ball Cricket Clubs (OMSCC) tour­na­ment.

The Esse­quib­ian righthander chalked up 405 runs from ten matches in­clu­sive of two cen­turies while he emerged as the best bowler with 11 scalps from the same num­ber of matches. He re­ceived the crick­eter-of-theyear award at the re­cently held gala pre­sen­ta­tion by the OMSCC.

Ac­cord­ing to the ex-Esse­quibo se­nior In­ter-county skip­per, he had wanted to make an im­pres­sion this sea­son hav­ing only played in his second year at the over40 di­vi­sion and was more than happy to be the lead­ing player.

“I am proud to be the top bats­man this year; cer­tainly the hard work paid great div­i­dends while tak­ing the wicket tro­phy also gave me the mo­ti­va­tion to do well again next year,” Man­dolall re­lated.

An­other for­mer Guyana player Shiv Seeram also showed equal dom­i­nance but in the over-50 cat­e­gory ac­cu­mu­lat­ing over 400 runs. Seeram, who also rep­re­sented Canada at the high­est level, made 406 runs from 11 matches and reg­is­tered two hun­dreds.

Mean­while, at the funct i on which was kept in Scar­bor­ough, pres­i­dent of the OMSCC, Canad-based Guyanese Azeem Khan, con­grat­u­lated the awardees and all the var­i­ous win­ners. He made spe­cial men­tion of the spon­sors while he re­served his grat­i­tude for his fel­low ex­ec­u­tives for their hard­work and com­mit­ment on pulling off an­other suc­cess­ful sea­son.

Khan, a long-time mem­ber of OMSCC, stated that OMSCC has seen tremen­dous growth over the years and spoke epi­cally about host­ing an­other ter­rific Toronto Cup 2 ear­lier this year in which the Guyana Flood­lights Soft­ball Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion team par­tic­i­pated but was knock­out at the semi-fi­nal stage in the over45 di­vi­sion.

Khan said based on these kinds of ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from Seeram and Man­dolall is cer­tainly a re­flec­tion of the ea­ger­ness play­ers still show­ing to make an im­pres­sion. He took the op­por­tu­nity to ed­u­cate the au­di­ence that OMSCC team did par­tic­i­pate at the Guyana Cup 7 too and thanked the play­ers for their pro­found in­ter­est by mak­ing the trip to the South Amer­i­can con­ti­nent.

The team was skip­pered by Seeram and com­prised of sev­eral other soft­ball stal­warts like Su­nil Dhani­ram, Bobby Paras­nauth, Jai­mini Singh among oth­ers.
