Bando hits impressive 123no in Atlantic cricket
Bonne Aventure Presbyterian student Aby Bando slammed a brilliant 123 not out to lead her school to the Atlantic Primary School Victoria Educational Under-14 title.
Bando scored her century against Rochard Douglas Presbyterian as her school went on to record a 44-run victory to take the title.
Rochard Douglas Presbyterian won the toss and decided to insert Bonne Aventure, a decision they must have regretted after Bando started to get amongst the bowlers. After 20 overs, with her school matches cheering her on, Bando took her school to 223 for one. She was well supported by Manda Farrow who scored 26 not out.
This target proved too tough for Rochard Douglas as they responded well short at 179 all out. Farrow came back after her solid batting, to be destructive with the ball and claimed 4/33 to send Rochard Douglas spiralling. Emily Singh with 28 and Kavita Deodath 19 put up a flight but it was not enough.
Bando’s effort while very good was still short of the highest score for her school of 163 made by Yolanda Williams.
Farrow continued a great tradition for her family in sphere of sport and cricket, as both her siblings Reanna and Reneille Farrow now play on the national under 19 girls cricket team.
Bronte begins with win Bronte Sugar Road opened the inaugural Nicks Sporting Goods pink ball Twenty20 (T20) Tournament with a thumping win over East Indians at Evergreen Sports Ground in Pluck Road, San Francique, last Thursday.
Batting first in front of a good crowd, East Indians did not negotiate the pink ball well and ended up being all out for just 119 runs. Bronte Sugar Road responded with 122/4 in 16.2 overs to claim the six-wicket win.
The tournament continued on Monday night and this time Longdenville was in awesome form, winning by eight wickets. They got over the line against Secret Storm by eight wickets. Secret batted well to post a challenging score of 142/5 in 20 overs. They must have fancied their chances of winning this encounter but Longdenville romped to victory at 143/2 in just 14 overs.
Organiser Vishal Ramnarine speaking to Guardian Media said: “Come out and support the first ever pink ball night cricket T20 Blitz. We have some great teams playing and the quality of cricket is good.”
Ramnarine added that Penal has become a hub for local cricket and he is very happy to have his tournament in the area.
“We are looking forward to great cricket in this league. We have worked very hard to bring it on stream and the community has been coming out to support the cricket. The pink ball is a great addition to the cricket landscape and the players are all very excited to play with it during the tournament. We are hoping that some good cricketers can be found through our cricket tournament, who can go on to greater things.”
