33rd annual Sir Garfield Sobers Cricket Tournament
The 33rd annual Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools Cricket tournament, currently being played in St Michael, Barbados, has seen the Business School record their 6th loss in their ‘Zone B’ campaign.
Playing against the Antigua Combined Schools on Wednesday, July 17, Guyana’s Business School again fell victim to unfamiliar conditions and were bowled out for less than 100, eventually losing the match by 7 wickets.
They have thus far registered a solitary win in the competition.
Sent in to bat and needing to capitalise on the full quota of their 40 overs, the Business School were in trouble from ball one, as they struggled to read the pitch and soon found their openers back in the pavilion, forcing their middle order to carry the bulk of the work in the game.
These were no match for the Antiguan side, who maintained a consistent line and length to bamboozle the Business School, dismissing the sorry side for 92 in 26.4 overs.
Top scoring for the Business School were Ushardeva Balgobin, with 19, and Andsugga Rodriguez, with 13.
The Antiguan wrecker was Tehrique Mason, who bagged 6-26.
Needing a simple target of 93 for victory off 240 balls, the Combined Schools comfortably played themselves in and added another victory to their tally. Their innings ended on 93-3 in 17 overs, as they made light work of the Guyanese bowling.
Top scoring for Antigua were Jahiem Africa, with an unbeaten 38; Michael Marcellin, with 20, and Asher Cornelius, with 11. Andsugga Rodriguez picked up 2 wickets for 14 runs for the Guyanese side.
