At a packed Fairfield Pavilion, Renegade Cricket Club held its Annual Awards Dinner and it was another very successful event as players, their family, and well-wishers came out to show their support. The evening began with a dance performance by little Kayla. And as if Kayla was not enough the next dancer took it to another level, her dancing turned the tempo up and had almost everyone involved as she gyrated to sweet classic music.
Renegade Captain Dan Morgan took the 2014 season Most Valuable Player prize. Morgan took his team to the playoffs two times in the 2014 season, and reached the final in the NYSCL President Cup. He scored a total of 263 runs and grabbed 29 wickets. Morgan had a very dominating season showing good leadership and always getting runs and wickets to keep his team in contention.
Johnny Sookraj took home the prize for the most wickets with 31, Sunil Khelawan scored 372 runs and was rewarded with the batting prize. Chabilall Ramdhani was the most outstanding player in the 2014 season, scoring two centuries, against Essequibo and New York All-Stars, in both innings he was not out on 102.
The Renegade Cricket Club, one of the more organized club in the New York Softball Cricket League, has done very well, both on the field and off. This team has managed to secure sponsorship from a wide cross section off business both local and even far as Guyana. The night’s event was possible by Fairfield Pavilion, Leisure Valley Camp Ground, Fabulous Construction, Specialized Home Improvement, M&R Auto Collision, Rite Away Messenger, Discount Transmission, Double Dutch Express, Spick & Span, Home of NY Realty, D & M Home Improvement, S.N. Auto Repair, Paul Khadoo, United Trucking, Best Match Corp. and KB. & B. General Contractor (Guyana).
The event has grown from a few dozen people into a few hundred in a very short period. Kudos has to be given to the Renegade Cricket Club organizers for all the hard work in making such a wonderful night of partying. Especial mention goes out to the team Manager Vishwa Sookraj and club President Kenny Kissoon.
To all the guys who helped, Johnny Sookraj with the awards presentation, Anand Kishore working the mic , all the deejays for keeping the dance floor moving and to all the patrons who supported the raffle, thanks for supporting cricket.
