Clarke routs St Lucy bats
Sachin Clarke is back in the wickets again.
The young Gordon Greenidge bowler took another five-wicket haul as he and Matthew Forde combined to take all but one wicket in their team’s 85-run victory over St Lucy in Friday’s action of the Guardian General Herman Griffith Primary Schools’ Cricket tournament at Upper Carlton.
Clarke took five for nine while Forde conceded the same number of runs for his four wickets to blow over the visitors for just 20 runs in response to Gordon Greenidge’s total of 105.
Forde was also the mainstay of the hosts’ winning total after scoring 27 valuable runs in the middle order.
Gordon Greenidge are now unbeaten after six games.
Clarke’s haul was just one of three on the day, though, as both Cody Clarke and Mason Charles proved more than a handful for the opposing batsman.
Playing at Dover, Cody Clarke had even more impressive figures of six for seven as Luther Thorne romped to a ten-wicket rout after bowling out People’s Cathedral for 18 runs.
At the James Bryan Complex in Market Hill, Mason Charles took five for 20 to help home side Cuthbert Moore beat St Lukes Brighton by 21 runs. The hosts appeared to be in trouble after Jalani Bascombe and Diquone Roberts combined for six wickets to bowl them out for just 82 in 21 overs.
But Charles put the visitors under pressure from ball one as St Lukes managed just 61 in 17 overs. (JM)
