On a beautiful day at the 150 and Rockaway Park cricket ground commenced the first cricket match in the NYSCL tournament of 2017. It was played between the newly formed SEAL TEAM XI and the Buccaneers cricket club. The toss was won by Buccaneers and they elected to field first. SEAL TEAM XI got off to a blistering start with opening batsman R. Gopaul and Steve Sookhoo. The score was 35 before Steve Sookhoo was caught for a well-played 19.
Next batsman in was R. Bridgelall along with R. Gopaul batted aggressively. Buccaneers then got the wicket of R. Gopaul for 25 that included 1 six and 2 fours. In comes Ernesto Sookhoo (Romel) at number 4 who displayed a classic cricket clinic as he plundered and destroyed all the bowlers from the strong Buccaneers team as he blasted a hurricane 95 punctuated with 5 massive sizes and 5 elegant fours.
What an innings to be hold. This was an inning consisting of an array of breathtaking cover drives piercing the smallest of gaps with authoritative and surgical precision. Other good batting contributions came from some of the young guns R. Bridgelall 13, M. Sugrim 14 and Safraz 24 not out. SEAL TEAM XI made 206 for 7 in their allotted 20 overs.
Buccaneers were bundled out for 110. SEAL TEAM XI bowled and field brilliantly throughout the match. R. Bridgelall executed two magnificent runouts. The pick of the bowlers was S. Mustafa, Andy Naraine, and R. Gopaul. Before the game commences the manager of SEAL TEAM XI Mr. Vicky Ramsamooj explained the game plan which of course at the conclusion was 100 percent executed with total precision by captain Andrew and members of the team. SEAL TEAM XI won by a big margin.
We would like to thank the senior players for their creative innovation and formation of the SEAL TEAM XI. Mr. Vicky Ramsamooj, Ramesh Ramsamooj, Sham Singh, Dr. Jack and Joe Chanderpaul. The members of the SEAL TEAM XI would like to pay our obedience and salutation to our sponsor Mr. Mark of GO SOLAR GREEN NY.
