Hicks and Batson steer RHTWSB into semi-finals

Responsible batting from openers Delbert Hicks and Renwick Batson helped Rose Hall Town Windies Sports Bar (RHTWSB) crush Bermine Sports Club in their clash at the Area H ground last Saturday to book their place in the semi-final of the ABS limited-overs first-division competition.

RHTWSB made 259-4 from their 40 overs and Bermine were dismissed for 95 from 28 overs in reply.
Winning the toss and batting, RHTWSB were indebted to Hicks who made 103 and Batson (42).
The two put on 83 runs for the first wicket in a mere 8.4 overs.

Batson hit six fours and two sixes before he was dismissed by K. De Jesus.
Hicks  who was joined by Michael Rengasammi added 61 runs for the second wicket before Rengasammi was bowled by medium pacer Julian Moore.

Hicks and Jason Sinclair then added 74 runs for the third wicket before Moore had Sinclair caught at mid off for 30.
Hicks duly posted his first century of the year from 98 balls with 14 fours and two sixes.

Former Guyana and West Indies under-19 skipper Andre Percival (15 not out) and Berbice under-19 all rounder Eon Hooper (6 not out), carried their team to their eventual total of 259-4.

Moore, 2-47 and De Jonge, 2-49 were the principal wicket-takers.
Bermine struggled in reply with Moore and Sean Baksh contributing 26 runs each against disciplined bowling.
Baksh struck two fours and the same number of sixes, but Troy Matheison (2-4), Percival (2-10), Ravi Narine (2-22) and Batson 2-26 all contributed towards the Bermine batting demise to ensure their team face Port Mourant in the semi-final at the same venue.
Young Warriors have already made it to the final after drawing a bye in the semis.
