After seven rounds of gruelling competition in the Brainstreet Under 15 100 overs cricket tournament the bowlers have been dominant evidenced by the seven five wicket hauls.
In contrast, the batsmen have struggled to make big scores as evidenced by the highest score of the tournament thus far being the 99 made by Timothy McAlmont for Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) A against the Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC).
Transport Sports Club’s (TSC) Collin Barlow so far has the best bowling figures of the tournament with 6/10 against DCC `B’ bowling medium pace.
Andrew Clifford of the Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) grabbed five wickets against GCC while Onika Wallerson impressed with 5/9 for the ladies against TSC.
TSC’s Jamal Michael took 5/10 against GYO and 5/20 against Queen’s College bowling off spin, while Queen’s College’s Hassed Hamid took 5/31 against TSC.
Transport Sports Club’s Joel Spooner took 5/34 against GCC with his off breaks.
