Andrew Samaroo’s exceptional form continued with both bat and ball as he led Bel Air Rubis to a 10-wicket hammering of Muslim Youth Organisation (MYO) Cricket Club at Ogle Sunday during the latest round of the Georgetown Cricket Association/Friends of Cricket U17 100 overs tournament.
Samaroo blasted an unbeaten 99 in Bel Air Rubis’ innings and took 3-14.
MYO won the toss, batted and were routed for 132 in 54.2 overs. Bel Air, in reply, required just 22 overs to reach 135.
Samaroo, bowling for Bel Air Rubis, took 3-14 from nine overs, three of which were maidens. Ravindra Samaroo supported with 3-18 from seven overs and Daveanand Khemraj 2-11 from six overs.
Zeynul Ramsammy of MYO scored 44 from 126 deliveries, sharing in a 49-run stand for the sixth wicket with Elnathan Sooknanan who made 18.
Ricardo Ramdehol (13) and Marlon Boele (14) were the only other batsmen to reach double figures.
In Bel Air Rubis’ reply, Shivanand Gopaul retired hurt after hitting a boundary but Samaroo found his groove to clobber an unbeaten 99 from just 63 balls with 12 fours and seven sixes, three of which came from Krisna Singh’s fourth over.
