Talented teenager Vishwanauth Ramlakhan played a responsible hand on Sunday to guide the Enmore Community Centre Cricket Club (ECCCC) Under-19 side to a comfortable six-wicket win over hosts Everest in a feature 40-over game.

Set a victory target of 134, the ECCCC lads replied with 136-4 from 28.2 overs with the right-handed batsman and captain, Ramlakhan, hitting a solid 42.

The diminutive middle-order batsman stroked six fours and shared in a 53-run third wicket stand with Rudolph Singh after the visitors were reduced to 17-2.

Singh slammed six fours in scoring 31 before he was dismissed with his team 12 runs short of victory. Ramdeo Basdeo (08*) and Gavin Moriah (03*) saw the ECCCC side to victory, with Rabindra Rooplall, Aleem Rasheed and Gavin Sookdeo taking a wicket each for Everest.

Batting first, Everest made 133 from 39.3 overs with Darshan Persaud hitting a topscore of 33 (4x4s) and Rooplall 14.

Off-spinner Satesh Jainarine was splendid with the ball for ECCCC, claiming 4-18, while Ramdeo Basdeo bagged 3-17. Ramlakhan was later named Man of the Match for his match-winning knock.

The game was played as part of the Everest Cricket Club’s 100th year anniversary celebrations.
