MVP Jaikaran leads DCC to inaugural RBL Under-23 title

DCC are champions

Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) have stormed to the inaugural title of the Republic Bank (Guyana) Ltd Under-23 Super50 tournament, after trouncing North Essequibo by 124 runs during Friday’s exciting final held at the Bourda Ground.
Both teams had qualified to contest the national final after winning their respective county finals, and in keeping with their consistent form throughout the tournament, DCC racked up 278 in batting first.
Leading the charge was Man-of-the-Match, Brandon Jaikaran, who hit a classy 74 that had four fours and a pair of sixes. Support came from his opening partner Sachin Singh, who accumulated 42 off 43 balls (3×4, 3×6), and Jaden Campbell and Indarjeet Nanan each contributed 26 runs.
Led by Rajindra Ramballi with 3-48 and Natron Gill with 2-33, the North Essequibo bowlers operated with decent efficiency, but
replying to almost 300 runs was never an easy task, and North Essequibo found that out, as they could muster only 153-7 by the time their overs had been expended. However, Carl Gilgeous (43), Quincy Simpson (31), Govinda Tulsie (20) and Ramballi (19) had toiled with bat for Essequibo.
Bowling for DCC, Ezekiel Wilson (3-28) and DCC skipper Nkosi Beaton (2-13) stemmed the flow of runs ahead of the victory.
The “Most Wickets” accolade in the finals went to Wilson for his 3 wickets. However, the star of the moment was Jaikaran, who was undoubtedly the form man for his team in the final battle. He copped a double award, as he was named MVP of the Finals and was awarded for scoring the Most Runs in the Final.
GCB Secretary Ronald Williams hailed the tournament for being outstanding, and added it was important to secure sponsorship for the tournament. He lauded the sponsors, RBL, for their full support, especially with their title sponsoring the ongoing Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League.
