A DOWNPOUR, on Saturday night into Sunday morning, resulted in umpires calling off the GISE, Star Party Rental, and Trophy Stall-sponsored first-division two-day cricket match between the Transport Sports Club and the home team Police.
The washout result means that Police, owing to their dominance on the opening day, finished with first-innings points, but it would have most likely saved the visitors from surrendering full points also. At the close of play, the Lawmen had a 269-run lead after having restricted TSC to 101 and then belting their way to 370-3 in 44 overs.
Kevon Boodie had led the attack with an aggressive 161, while former West Indies U-19 cricketer, Kevlon Anderson, was on 129 not out and would have looked to score quick runs this morning before an inevitable declaration by the Lawmen.
Police’s opening bowler, Eon Rodrigues, who decimated Transport’s top order with 4-62, and left-arm spinner, Anthony Adams, who finished with 5-26, would have also fancied their chances of getting more wickets yesterday.
Other cricket games in the capital city were also rained out.
