Everest Cricket Club on Monday recorded an eight-wicket victory over Enterprise Busta Sports Club to win the Trophy Stall T20 one off match.
In a rain affected game, Enterprise scored 93-4 off their allotted 15 overs after taking first strike.
Enterprise’s Khalid Mohamed (05) was dismissed in the third over with the score on 11. However, Vishwanauth Gobin and Mankad Balkissoon steadied the innings with a second-wicket partnership worth 37 runs before Gobin was bowled by Rohan Sarjoo for 25 (2×4).
Balkissoon, who made 16, then added a further 39 runs for the third wicket with Latchman Yadram (20) to help Enterprise reach their eventual total. Sarjoo led Everest’s bowling attack with figures of 2-19. With a target of 94 on a heavy outfield, Everest lost opener Sheik Mohamed (00) LBW to Seemangal Yadram in the first over before Sahadeo Hardeo and Hemraj Garbarran steadied the innings with their second wicket partnership of 68.
Garbarran was dismissed for 25 (1×4 1×6) while Hardeo, who top scored with 57 not out (2×4 4×6) and Basil Persaud (07 not out) ensured their team reached the target in 10 overs. Yadram (1-6) and Mohamed (1-7) were the wicket takers for Enterprise.
Hardeo was the man of the match award while Everest collected a trophy.
The match was organised in honour of Everest’s 100th anniversary celebrations.
