At the Seaview Park in Brooklyn, winning the toss and batting Alvin Barratt and Wahab Husain of Sunrise paced a wonderful innings. Alvin opens his account by blasting a four to long off as Wahab look to assist in anchoring the innings. This pair quickly knocks out the opening bowlers D. Edwards and Y. Bascom of Sheffeld. With Alvin striking the ball commandingly, while Sheffeld bowlers couldn’t find the break through, along with Wahab they see off Sheffeld bowler’s up to number four. After setting an important batting foundation, Ward bowling at number 5 was able to penetrate through Wahab’s guards bowling him with the score at 54 in the 8th over.  Alvin, who was in the batting grove, finding the boundary lines frequently, was joined by Roopnarine Dayal who quickly settled in. Hustling to close out Sunrise first batting half, Dayal was caught at off square off the bowling of D. Edwards with the score at 82 for 2 at the 13th overs.

Placing Sunrise at a commanding batting position, Alvin was joined by Robindra Singh (Vicky), who continues to be a batting force for his team. Alvin celebrated his half century and continues on his spectacular inning, as Vicky scored fast runs. This pair looked dangerous as they were hitting flurries of boundaries to close out Sunrise innings. Alvin blasting a shot to cover was caught by a stunning catch off the bowling of Bascom. As the scoreboard read 141 for 3 in the 19th over, Alvin had a brilliant 76 runs knock and placed his team in a solid position. Alvin played a masterpiece knock with aggressions, hitting ten boundaries and was a treat for his teammates and supporters watching. Vicky who shared in a 60 runs partnership with Alvin was joined by A. Gobind.  As they raced to close their innings, Vicky was unfortunate being caught for a fast 44 runs and falling short of a half century for consecutive weeks. Gobind took the responsibility making an unbeaten 27 runs, and along with Raj Balgobin they closed out Sunrise’s inning postings 200 for 5 in their allotted 25 overs.

Chasing down an above par score, A. Gordon and R. Allicock of Sheffeld looked solid taking ten runs off the first over to start their innings. What looks like a solid opening stands was quickly broken up by Krishna Kemraj, Sunrise captain as he had Gordon caught at slip with the score at 21 in the 3rd overs. Allicock who was batting solid and confidence was joined by W. Ward. Knowing that they have to chase down a big total, this pair looks to attack Sunrise bowler’s and found success.

After a 60 plus partnership between Allicock and Ward, Harold Deokinanan knocks over Ward leg stumps and right after Allicock who made 49 runs was caught of the bowling of Robindra Singh with score at 93 for 3 in the 12 over. D. Edwards and E. Datson the new batsmen for Sheffeld settled and take the score to 106 runs in the 13 over half placing them well head of Sunrise.

Edwards and Datson continue to punish Sunrise bowlers who were bowling down the leg and picked for few big overs to start their second half batting. After firing for triple boundaries, Edwards was caught behind by keeper Wahab Hussain off of K. Kemraj bowling. However, N. Roberson joined Datson and they continue to race toward Sunrise total. Faced with possibility of losing the game, the ball was given to Robindra Singh who had Datson caught at long off and right after had Roberson caught. With back to back wickets and hat-trick in play Robindra removed Y. Bascum leg stumps and exhaled in celebration, earning a well-deserved hat-trick which was celebrated by his fellow teammates.
