Joseph takes two hat-tricks for Bayley’s
Daniel Joseph sent everyone scrambling yesterday. And it wasnt just his bowling that had people in trouble.
The eight-year-old Bayley’s Primary student sent National Sports Council officials scrambling for the record books, after what must be a record in the Guardian Group Herman Griffith Primary Schools’ Cricket Competition yesterday.
He took two hat-tricks and ended with the remarkable figures of eight for 13 against St Mark’s Primary.
Joseph who is one of a twin, with his brother Darius also playing on the team, single-handedly skittled out St Mark’s for a paltry 26 in just ten overs.
Powerhouse Bayley’s had rattled up 211 for four at their home ground with Jayden Small scoring 54 and Azari Best making an unbeaten 49.
Bayley’s have now played and won all three games in the 2014 season.
Also in winner’s row yesterday were St Giles Primary, who continued their good run with an easy 98-run victory over George lamming at Blenheim.
Jomorio St Hill led the way for St. Giles, pulling off a number of trademark drives en route to making 52, as his side piled up 146.
George Lamming came up quite short in reply, scoring only 55.
Another powerhouse side, St Stephen’s Primary played on easy street yesterday, beating Lawrence T. Gay by seven wickets at the Desmond Haynes Playing Field in St James.
Adje Maynard and Kyron Alexander took three wickets apiece for St. Stephen’s as they dismantled the Lawrence T. Gay line-up, reducing them to 29 all out. Getting the result was a formality for St Stephen’s in spite of them losing three wickets before reaching 35 to earn the win.
One of the closer encounters was at Lowlands, St Lucy, where Gordon Greenidge Primary defeated Ignatius Byer by only 24 runs. Gordon Greenidge were first up and made 88 for 5, before bowling out their opponents for 64. Saurav Worrell was the destroyer, taking 5 for 15, inclusive of a hat-trick. (KB)
