Everest defeat DCC by 23 runs on D/L method

-Campbell, George, Adams, Balgobin capture spotlight 

Everest completed a 23-run win over host the Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) on the Duckworth/Lewis method in the latest round of this year’s New Building Society Second division 40-over tournament when rain ended play yesterday. 

DCC, in pursuit of 189 for victory, were cruising along on 149-3 in 30 overs when rain ended play. Subsequently, according to the umpires’ calculations, they would have had to be on 167-3 when the interruption came to secure the win. 

Nerveless, the unsuccessful chase saw national under – 15 batsman Jaden Campbell carving out an innings of 67 while Brandon Jaikaran (36) chipped in. Raylex Payne nabbed 2-30 for Everest who earlier posted 188 before being dismissed in 32.2 overs with seamer Dexter George (5-37) registering a five wicket haul.
