Bramble, bowlers lead Harpy Eagles to easy win

… TT, CCC game end in no result

The action continued in the CG Insurance Super50 Cup at Tarouba as the Guyana Harpy Eagles registered a comfortable win over the Windward Islands Volcanoes. This victory was thanks to a brilliant half-century by Anthony Bramble and excellent defence by the bowlers to give the Guyanese side some valuable points.

Anthony Bramble and Tagenarine Chanderpaul put together a 93-run partnership

Heading into the much-anticipated chase, the Windward Islands Volcanoes set themselves a total of 191 off 300 balls for victory. The Harpy Eagles made an early impact as they had them reeling at 6-2, but a 66-run partnership between Sunil Ambris and Kaveem Hodge settled their nerves. But Ambris departed for 43 and a few wickets fell. However, Hodge remained strong as the last barrier of the Volcanoes innings, until he fell for a 97-ball 38. Romario Shepherd 2-26, Clinton Pestano 1-23, Veerasammy Permaul 1-21, Sherfane Rutherford 3-25 and Gudakesh Motie 3-31 all led the charge as they put up a strong defence. In the end, the Volcanoes were dismissed for 129 all out in 38 overs.

Gudakesh Motie picked up 3-31

Earlier in the innings, the Harpy Eagles posted a meagre 190 all out in 43 overs. The only highlight of the innings came off the bat of Anthony Bramble, who smashed a scintillating 60 off 58 balls, Kevin Sinclair (36), Tagenarine Chanderpaul (30), and Shimron Hetmyer (37) were the only other players to step into double figures. At the beginning of the innings, Bramble and Chanderpaul put together the Harpy Eagles’ best partnership innings of 93 runs. After Bramble fell, Chanderpaul followed suit and after that the Harpy Eagles crumbled under pressure, more so the bowling of Justin Greaves as he snagged 4-39. Hetmyer and Sinclair stuck around for some time, but ultimately the damage was already done. Hodge managed to pick up 3-9, while Preston McSween (2-46) and Ryan John (1-32) closed out the Harpy Eagles innings.


The morning game was affected by the rain. Batting first, Combined Campuses and Colleges posted 200 all out in their allotted 50 overs. The innings was led by Kristian Kallicharran with 37, he was ably supported by Odain Mcatty (28), Matthew Forde (25) and Romario Greaves (22). Bowling for T&T was Imran Khan, who led with a superb 4-53, Jason Mohamed, Terrance Hinds, and Yannic Cariah supported with two wickets apiece.
Heading into the chase, Kjorn Ottley was the main man as he led the charge with ease, despite Joshua DaSilva falling for 22, Mohammed and Ottley continued to lay the foundation for the Trinidadians. However, the rains came and when they ceased, the game was reduced to 26 overs, but the rains had already had their say, thus the game ended in a no-result. Ottley remained unbeaten on 43 and Mohamed 23 not out as T&T remained on 97-1.
