Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) remained unbeaten after another Christopher Campbell’s half century guided the league leaders to a comprehensive victory over Malteenoes Sports Club (MSC), yesterday, at GNIC ground as action continued in the Georgetown Cricket Association/ Brainstreet Group Under-15 Competition.
GNIC, who opted to take first strike, was dismissed for 183 in 28.5 overs, with Campbell scoring 89. It was his second half century of the week after scoring 82 against Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) ‘B’. In reply MSC was bowled out for 80 in 25.1 overs as GNIC completed its third victory of the week.
Campbell who struck 10 fours and two sixes was unfortunate to be run out for the third consecutive time this week as he attempted
a risky single. Kurt Lovell and Haifer Walters supported Campbell with 28 and 21 respectively. Bowling for MSC, Stacey Norville picked up two wickets to help restrict GNIC.
In reply, MSC was in early trouble at the lunch interval with the scorecard on 63-6 from 15 overs. After the break GNIC took 10.1 overs to claim the final four wickets. Only Avin Yangadin 35 (4×4, 1×6) and Norville 13 got into double figures for the MSC side. Bowling for GNIC Dwayne Dick and Paul Thomas were the chief wicket takers with figures of 3-16 and 2-6 respectively.
At Gandhi Youth Organisation (GYO) Ground, Transport Sports Club (TSC) defeated GYO by seven wickets. After GYO won the toss and decided to bat they made 127 all out in 40.1 overs, with Anil Singh (26), Danesh Ally (19) and Navindra Persaud (18) being the principal scorers.
