Demerara in record 358-run defeat of Essequibo

Top performers! (l-r) Akaze Thompson (164* not out), Kaycia Schultz (5-2) and Temica Wilson (105)

Demerara condemned Essequibo to a record 358-run defeat in the second round of the Guyana Cricket Board Senior Female 50-overs Inter-County tournament at the Lusignan Community Centre Ground yesterday.

Batting first, maiden centuries from Akaze Thompson and debutant Temica Wilson propelled Demerara to the highest score ever in the tournament’s history, 380-3 from their full quota of overs while a five-wicket haul from left-arm spinner, Kaycia Schultz,  helped skittle  Essequibo for just 22 runs in 24.3 overs.

Thompson, after being dropped on 0, 3 and 11 made use of her chances to hammer the inexperienced Essequibo bowling for 15 boundaries on her way to the highest score in Senior Female One Day cricket, 164 not out…..
