By Delvon Mc Ewan


Transport Sports Club (TSC) fell short of scoring an outright victory against Police in the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA)/Hadi’s World Incorporated first division two-day competition which ended in a draw yesterday at Police Sports Club ground, Eve Leary.

TSC, who resumed on yesterday’s second day on their overnight 189-6, with Keon Morris and Devaughn Nandan on three and 74, went on to score 254 all out. Morris and Nandan added another 15 runs before Morris was removed by Jermaine Reynolds without adding to his overnight score. Police struck again when Shawn Massiah was dismissed for nought by off spinner Kelvin Leitch. However, TSC did not lose another wicket as Nandan found valuable support in Kevin Ross. Nandan eventually reached triple figures with a pull shot off pacer Seon Daniels that went racing to the mid-wicket boundary but was removed two balls after by Daniels attempting the same shot that brought up his century. TSC innings finally ended when Daniels had Ewart Samuels caught at mid-on. Daniels led Police’s attack picking up 3-27 while Randolph Knights and Leitch took two wickets each.
