Renee, Imloch and Favorite power DCC to handsome win over GYO
THANKS to centuries from Renaldo Renee and Tevin Imloch, backed by a maiden five-wicket haul from lanky fast bowler Yenkini Favorite, Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) last Sunday defeated Gandhi Youth Organisation (GYO) by 28 runs in their Georgetown Cricket Association/Noble House Seafoods second division encounter at the GYO ground.
Batting first in hazy conditions, GYO were bowled out for 144 off 42.5 overs, courtesy of Favorite’s 5 for 37 and Dennis Squires’ 3 for 50, with N. Walker 76 (14×4, 1×6) and P. Persaud 20 (4×4) being the principal scorers for the home team.
In reply, DCC rattled up 341 for 4 declared, thanks to Renee’s 115 (18×4) and 107 from Imloch which was decorated with 18 fours as well, while Raymond Perez chipped in with 52 at the top of the order, hitting nine fours during his stay.
C. Reid, A. DeFreitas and D. Ramjattan took one wicket each for 55, 59 and 90 runs respectively. GYO began their second innings with a deficit of 197 runs, and were bowled out for 169 off 56.1 overs, as only W. Mohamed 35 (7×4), G. Bess 27 (3×4, 1×6) and V. Gangaram 21 (5×4) resisted the bowling of Xaviee Smith and Squires who took 3 wickets each for 5 and 74 runs respectively for the victors. (Calvin Roberts)
