Enmore CCCC Bravados, Ogle CC Blasters clash in final this weekend
Neville Ramotar Memorial T20
Enmore CCCC A (Bravados) will take on defending champions Ogle CC Blasters in the final of the 2019 Neville Ramotar T20 cricket competition this Sunday at the Enmore Community Centre Ground.
This competition commenced in 2019 among 20 teams before being suspended in December 2019 owing to inclement weather.
The competition is being played in memory of the late Neville Ramotar, an ardent cricket supporter and businessman from Enmore. The first team, which wins the competition twice, will keep the Neville Ramotar lien trophy. Despite not winning any T20 competition recently, ECCCC Bravados will start as favourites after defeating a formidable Lusignan team recently in the 40-over cricket format on the Coast. There will also be an exhibition game preceding the final between a combined East Coast U-23 team and Lusignan East, who are the third-place team.
ECCCC’s batting will be led by Amir Khan, national U-17 player Chaitram Balgobin and the in-form Vishwanauth Ramlakhan while their quartet of spinners – Satash Jainarine, Chris Surat, Amir Khan, and Yuvraj Dayal – will look to restrict the Ogle batting line-up. Ogle CC Blasters Andrew Samaroo and Khemchandra Dindyal are expected to make significant contributions to their teams’ score while their bowling will be led by Ayodha Joseph and Damuka Ngondo.
