Fudadin scores 71 as Guyana reach 169-6

Assad Fudadin yesterday scored a half century but the Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) team had wrested control of the first day’s play of their day/night encounter against Guyana at the 3W’s Oval in Barbados.

Fudadin scored 71 but none of the other batsmen played any innings worth mentioning as Guyana reached 169-6 up to press time after they were sent in by the CCC team.

At the wicket were T20 Captain Christopher Barnwell and wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble.

Barnwell was not out on five while Bramble was still to get off the mark.

The Guyanese batsmen yesterday squandered a good position of 102-1 after Fudadin and skipper Leon Johnson came together after the loss of opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul, who was caught behind by wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton off the bowling of Ryan Austin for eight.

Johnson was eventually bowled by Raymon Reifer who later came back to claim the prized wicket of Shivnarine Chanderpaul for eight.

Narsingh Deonarine, who has not been having a good tournament was lucky to be dropped at third slip off Reifer but the left hander did not capitalize on the opportunity and fell for 19 after Guyana were 124-2 at tea with Fudadin not out on 65 and Deonarine not out on six.

Fudadin eventually fell to a catch at the wicket  while Deonarine was bowled by Mc Clean who also picked up the wicket of Chanderpaul Hemraj caught behind for 19.

Mc Clean and Reifer have so far taken two wickets while Austin has one.
