St Cuthbert’s Mission will start with the psychological advantage on Sunday when they face Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) in a return match at the Enmore Community Centre ground, starting at 11:00h.
The 35-over game is part of a reciprocal arrangement the two agreed to earlier this year when the ECCCC was re-launched.
In March, St Cuthbert’s Mission, playing at home, defeated the ECCCC by a comfortable 70-run margin, posting 170-6 before restricting the visitors to 100-9 in the T20 contest.
Middle-order batsman Timothy Andrews with 70 and fast bowler Burton Clenkin with 3-14 were the star performers for St Cuthbert’s Mission and both have been named in the squad for Sunday’s game.
While the visitors would want to make a clean sweep of the two-match series, the ECCCC lads would no doubt want to exploit home advantage and return the favour to their guests.
The ECCCC side has been boosted by the inclusion of national First-Class and West Indies Under-19 opener, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, and national First-Class and former West Indies Under-19 leg-spinner, Amir Khan.
ECCCC squad reads: Bheemraj Ramkellawan, Sheik Mohamed, Chandraban Seemangal, Chetram Ramlall, Vishwanauth Ramlakhan, Amir Khan, Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Mark Malone, Adrian Persaud, Jacob Persaud, Ranjeet Hiralall, Satesh Jainarine, M. Persaud and Naresh Persaud.
St Cuthbert’s Mission squad reads: Timothy Andrews, Burton Clenkin, Timur Ferreira, Stallone Simon, Alford Ferreira, Alpheus Dundas, Avinash Sammy, Julio Ferreira, Raul Daniels, Eustace O’Selmo, Rayon Gunpath and Oswald Hosein.
