Third Class outclassed by GCC

Daniel Seegobin made the top score of 62.

The Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) yesterday outclassed Third Class winning by a 216-run margin in the Georgetown Cricket Association, New Building Society, second-division, limited-overs competition at the Police Sports Club ground Eve Leary.

Batting first GCC rallied to reach 300-8 from their allotted 40 overs. J. Sukdeo smashed a quick fire 49 with seven fours and two sixes while his opening partner nudged his way to 16.

T. McAlmont blasted his half century with six fours and at one stage, GCC looked as if they were scoring only via boundaries as they cleared the inner circle hardly ever playing a shot in the ground.

Daniel Seegobin hammered the top score of 62 and paired with Joshua Wade to put on a 100-run partnership before B. Bailey with a 27-run cameo helped them reach 300-8.

Bailey (2-85) and Ghisawan (2-31) were the pick of the bowlers.

In their chase of the imposing total, the two top bowlers for Third Class opened the batting and both departed cheaply as K. Wright ripped through their meek line up. While three batsmen reached double figures, Third Class lasted all but 18 overs.

Wright bagged 5-11 while Gavin Singh (2-24) and S. Bacon (2-22) were the other wicket takers.
