Bhaskar Yadram poses with the trophies he copped on the tour of T&T
National Under-15 captain Bhaskar Yadram was in top form recently, hitting four half-centuries during a seven-match tour by the Enterprise Busta Sports Club (EBSC) to Trinidad and Tobago.
The EBSC won just two and lost five of their games, but the diminutive B. Yadram was outstanding throughout, scoring 348 runs from five innings at an average of 69.6 with a highest score of 83.
In the opening game against Gaff Road, the EBSC made 175 with B. Yadram hitting 79 and Parmanand Dindyal scoring 44. Gaff Road easily overhauled the target.
In game two against Cosmos ‘B’, Dindyal topscored with 66 and Latchman Yadram made 60 in EBSC’s 225, before Kharan Ramdoon and Videsh Lall grabbed 3-16 and 3-24 respectively to limit Cosmos ‘B’ to 190.
Playing against Evergreen, the home team made 180, but EBSC fell agonisingly short, making 177 with first-class opener Rajendra Chandrika making 46 and L. Yadram 36.
Game four also ended in defeat for EBSC, who made 223 with B. Yadram scoring 83, before Cosmos knocked of the target. In the other two games against Cosmos, the EBSC lost both, despite B. Yadram’s 75 and 79 and Lall’s 4-16.
The EBSC’s second victory of the tour came in the final game against Cavaliers. B. Yadram made 32 in his team’s total of 160, before a combined team effort limited Cavaliers to 120.
Not surprisingly, B. Yadram was named MVP of the series, copping a whopping four Man-of-the-Match awards.
The EBSC’s tour to the twin-island republic was made possible through sponsorship from Guyana Beverages Inc. (Busta), Munesh Hardware Store; Puran’s Lumber Yard; Vishal Construction Service; Fullworks; Bissoondyal Singh; M. Alli and Mr. Brian.
