Adams confident in Everest, aims to advance to finals
NBS 40-Over 2nd-Division Tournament
After convincingly defeating Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) by 16 runs and then crushing the UG Trojans by 10 wickets – bowling them out for 96 runs, the iconic Everest Cricket Club have now advanced to the semi-finals of the New Building Society (NBS) 40-Over Second-Division Tournament where they will now await their opponents.
Speaking with Guyana Times Sport, Everest Captain Dwayne Adams when asked how he feels about his team qualifying for the semi-finals said, “It’s great; we’ve not made it to the semis for the limited overs for a couple of seasons. We lost our first two matches convincingly and knew we had to win all our remaining games to
have a chance of qualifying. We have been training hard, fine-tuning some areas; we feel we are weak in and always talking to each other trying to keep everyone motivated and focused, more or less, it’s just about executing now. Our team is well balanced and everyone knows their role.”
Adams also went on to state that while their sudden spike in form is beneficial to the team, if there ever was a situation in the upcoming semi-final fixture the team can always rely on the likes of their senior players such as Javed Rasheed, Richie Looknauth, Amir Khan and himself, as they are all capable of stepping up when needed.
He also stated to this publication that he was also happy with himself as the Captain, since he was able to contribute with bat and ball following his two back-to-back half-centuries against UG Trojans and DCC. Adams has thus far made 270 runs and grabbed nine wickets.
In closing, the Everest Captain said, “I would like to thank NBS for continuing to support cricket in Georgetown and encourage them to keep up the good work. I would also like to encourage younger players to keep believing in yourself, put in the hard work, set goals for yourself and work towards them.”
