Deonarain leads DCC to victory over Transport Sports Club
A fine all-round display by 12-year-old Romeo Deonarain helped his club, Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) to crush Transport Sports Club (TSC) by five wickets in a feature Under -15, 30-over game played under lights last Friday at the home of legends, DCC, Queenstown.
Upon winning the toss, TSC elected to bat, with the intention of posting a large total on the board. R Latif and A Mohabir opened the batting for the visitors and put on a partnership of 26 before Mohabir went for seven.
Deonarain was then introduced into the attack and spun webs around the TSC batsmen with only Latif offering resistance with a fighting 29 while his team was bowled out for 82.
Deonarain finished with 4 for 10 off 5 overs. He was supported by K Caesar and S Walters with 2 wickets apiece.
In reply, DCC openers Deonarain and N Allen looked like they wanted to get things done quickly, but the latter went for six.
DCC lost two more quick wickets, but national junior table tennis star Jonathan Van Lange joined Deonarain and took their team closer to victory with good batting and sensible running between the wickets before the former went for 21.
In came the aggressive J Campbell who scored a rapid 18. Deonarain retired for a solid 17, with DCC winning by five wickets with 10 overs to spare.
Representatives from both teams thanked the organisers (DCC & GFSCA) for the opportunity as they prepare for the inter-county Under -15 tournament, which is to be contested shortly.
