[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Calvin Roberts Media XI will take on an Enmore Over-40 cricket team in a feature 20/20 match this Sunday at the Enmore Community Centre ground from 14:00hrs.
After their clash against the Georgetown Cricket Scorers and Umpires Association was washed out at half way of the match last Monday at the GGC ground Bourda, the Media XI in their quest to remain an active unit, took up the offer to face the Enmore side.
While the Media XI boys have named an unchanged squad from the last game, Enmore team are a relatively strong side, with several top players from the East Coast village.
The East Coast side will be led by Anil Persaud; the squad also includes former national Sheik Mohamed, opener Eon Abel, and all-rounder Jacob Persaud, whose lower-order hitting and brisk medium-pace could play a crucial role, while Ramon Malone is also expected to turn out for the East Coast of Demerara-based Enmore unit.
The Media boys will once again look to the in-form opener John Ramsingh for a solid start, as he is partnered by attacking left-hander Rajiv Bisnauth at the top, while the middle-order, which was a huge disappointment, will look to rebound with the likes of Daniel Singh, Avenash Ramzan, Keon Blade and Sean Devers all hunting some much-needed runs.
Though it will be a friendly contest, the teams will be battling for five trophies, sponsored by Tiger Sports of Enmore Old Road, East Coast Demerara. Apart from the winning and runner-up trophies, there will be individual prizes for the Man-of-the-Match, Best Batsman and Best Bowler.
The Media squad reads: Calvin Roberts (captain), John Ramsingh, Sean Devers, Daniel Singh (wkp.), Ravi Persaud, Avenash Ramzan, Rajiv Bisnauth, Esan Griffith, Duncan Saul, Clifton Ross, Ishaka Jackman, Kizan Brumell, Reuben Stoby and Keon Blade.
The Enmore Over-40 squad reads: Anil Persaud (captain), Sheik Mohamed (wkp.), Eon Abel, Ramo Malone, Jacob Persaud, Jagdesh Persaud, Shameer Shahib, Vijai Dass, A. Khan, Asif Khan, Hemraj Pillay, Satesh Panday, Ganeshram Emamally and Ganeshram Dayaram.
