Opener and former national wicketkeeper Sheik Mohammed and youth cricketer B Ramlakhan staged a spirited fight-back, with Mohammed scoring a fighting 18 and Ramlakhan a well-constructed 43. After their removal, compliments of Javed Saywack and Dellon Joseph respectively, the writing was on the wall.

The only other batsmen to offer any resistance were G Moriah and C Ramlall, both getting into double figures.

Dellon Joseph with 3-28 from 7 overs and Bramdat Singh 2-22 from 4 overs were the chief wicket takers for BLUSC.

The President of the Bush Lot United Sports Club, Robby Saywack thanked the Enmore Cricket Team for playing a hard fought game; and also the spectators for being a very disciplined yet vocal crowd who supported the teams to the fullest. He exhorted the players to stay focused and to train hard to achieve success in the game.

Mr Anil of Enmore emphasized the need to develop young talent in order to strengthen the cadre of national cricketers.

He also commended the two teams for including in their line-ups Under 17 and Under 15 cricketers as this bode well for the future.
