Sea Eagles- champions

Congratulations to the St. John’s Sea Eagles on capturing the indoor championship with a thrilling last over win over BD Power. The Sea Eagles batted first and put up a total of 56 from their 8 overs, and BD seemed well on their way to victory in the mid overs. some tight bowling and good fielding left them needing 7 from the last two balls, and they fell just short. This concludes an excellent indoor season involving eight teams. Pictures and video follow…

BD Power- runners up

Eastern T20

Runners up trophy

A fantastic effort by the provincial team earned second place at the Atlantic T20. In the crucial game with Nova Scotia, Nova Scotia put up a good total of 169 for seven wickets, which proved just too much for Newfoundland who fell 8 runs short. The early bats struggled apart from the consistent Rakesh Negi (31 runs) but a late rally led by Kathir Chenthilnathan – 56 not out took them close.

The second place finish is a huge improvement on last year and the team should be proud of a valiant effort.

Captain Rakesh Negi’s half century led Newfoundland and and Labrador to a historic win over Quebec at the Atlantic Twenty Twenty tournament in PEI. A strong bowling effort had Quebec on the back foot at 60/6 after 11 overs, and then 62/8 after 14. Quebec were 91 all out with Ashwin Gupta taking 4/13: Newfoundland made 92/2 with Rakesh 54*. The powerful Quebec squad (including national team players) had beaten the NL squad by a massive 116 runs last year, and were the beaten finalists in the national T20 competition a couple of years ago.

Our first full recreational league game was a great success, featuring some good batting, big hitting, straight bowling, and an age range of 7 to 56. The Terra Novas prevailed by 21 runs, making 123 in their twenty overs, and the Shamrocks being bowled out for 101.

The Shamrocks won the toss and chose to bowl, and Karimulla took advantage of the opportunity to open the innings to make an accomplished 32, with three fours and a six. The Terra Novas had been in a bit of trouble with four wickets down, but Karimulla was well supported by Dave Liverman (12), and an excellent innings from Mark Russell (14) – hard to believe Mark had not played prior to this year. Subhav’s high flighted spin accounted for both Karimulla and Dave, but Suriya and Tapan batted out the overs.

The Shamrocks started slowly, with newcomer Damian Masterson showing that he had not forgotten to bowl on a length and straight, despite not playing for two decades. He accounted for three of the top four bats, with Jack getting some big off-spin also taking a wicket. Alex played a captain’s innings, hitting three big sixes in his 27, and the Shamrocks seemed in with a chance. Tapan showed his bowling skills with two wickets, including bowling the Summer League’s MVP, and Damian returned to take his fourth wicket, Karthik being brilliantly caught in the deep by Mark to finish the innings.
Everyone enjoyed the day, blessed by unseasonably warm September sun, and the opportunity to play cricket in a less competitive atmosphere. The Shamrock and Terra Nova teams of 120 years ago would have been pleased to see their team names back on the cricket field.
