Demerara lifts GCB U17 Inter County trophy
By Delvon Mc Ewan
Demerara recorded an emphatic victory on the back of Sherfane Rutherford’s composed half century to claim the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Under-17 limited overs title after they defeated Berbice by 139 runs Saturday at the Everest Cricket Club Ground.
Rutherford, who took to the crease with Demerara in a stable position at 76-1, made a responsible 94 to help his team score 253-8 off 40 overs in their rain affected game.
He was partnered by skipper Travis Persaud in a fourth-wicket partnership of 103 runs from 79 deliveries. The two joined forces after Ramnarine Chatura was removed for 15 and the score on 130-3 and began building the partnership by picking up singles and finding the boundary off the wayward deliveries.
