Enmore Bravados, Ogle Blasters to clash in T20 final on Sunday
Enmore A team will take on defending champions Ogle Blasters in the final of the 2019 Neville Ramotar T20 cricket competition this Sunday (January 26) at the Enmore Community Centre Ground, East Coast Demerara.
The competition commenced last year with 20 teams before being suspended in December due to inclement weather.
The tournament is in its first year and is being played in memory of the late Neville Ramotar, an ardent cricket supporter and businessman of Enmore.
The first team which wins the competition twice will keep the Neville Ramotar lien trophy. ECCCC Bravados, who despite not winning any T20 competitions recently, will start as favourites after defeating a formidable Lusignan team recently in the 40-over format.
There will also be an exhibition game preceding the final between a combined East Coast Under-23 team and Lusignan East, who are the third placed team.
Enmore’s batting will be led by Amir Khan, national Under-17 player Chaitram Balgobin and the in-form Vishwanauth Ramlakhan, while spin quartet Satash Jainarine, Chris Surat, Amir Khan and Yuvraj Dayal will look to restrict Ogle’s batting.
Ogle Blasters’ Andrew Samaroo and Khemchandra Dindyal are expected to make significant contributions to their team’s score, while their bowling will be led by Ayodha Joseph and Damuka Ngondo.
The exhibition game is set for 10:00h and the final 13:30h.
