All-round performances from Aruph Hamid and Roy Persaud were key ingredients in Better Hope defeating Lusignan by 100 runs when action in the East Coast Cricket Board (ECCB) 40-over cricket competition continued recently.

Playing under overcast conditions at the Better Hope Community Centre ground, the home team posted a hefty 239 from 34.1 overs, after the game was reduced to 35 overs due to some early morning showers.

Hamid led the way with a fine 70, while Persaud supported with 57, as S. Bhimsingh snared 5-17 for Lusignan.

Hamid returned with the ball to claim 3-18 and Persaud 2-25 as Lusignan fell for 139 in 33.1 overs.
