Bando hits impressive 123no in Atlantic cricket
Bonne Aventure Presbyterian
student Aby Bando slammed a bril-
liant 123 not out to lead her school
to the Atlantic Primary School Vic-
toria Educational Under-14 title.
Bando scored her century against
Rochard Douglas Presbyterian as her
school went on to record a 44-run vic-
tory to take the title.
Rochard Douglas Presbyterian won
the toss and decided to insert Bonne
Aventure, a decision they must have
regretted after Bando started to get
amongst the bowlers. After 20 overs,
with her school matches cheering her
on, Bando took her school to 223 for
one. She was well supported by Manda
Farrow who scored 26 not out.
This target proved too tough for Ro-
chard Douglas as they responded well
short at 179 all out. Farrow came back
after her solid batting, to be destruc-
tive with the ball and claimed 4/33 to
send Rochard Douglas spiralling. Emily
Singh with 28 and Kavita Deodath 19
put up a flight but it was not enough.
Bando's effort while very good was
still short of the highest score for her
school of 163 made by Yolanda Wil-
Farrow continued a great tradition
for her family in sphere of sport and
cricket, as both her siblings Reanna
and Reneille Farrow now play on the
national under 19 girls cricket team.

Bronte Sugar Road opened the in-
augural Nicks Sporting Goods pink
ball Twenty20 (T20) Tournament
with a thumping win over East In-
dians at Evergreen Sports Ground
in Pluck Road, San Francique, last
Batting first in front of a good crowd,
East Indians did not negotiate the pink
ball well and ended up being all out
for just 119 runs. Bronte Sugar Road
responded with 122/4 in 16.2 overs to
claim the six-wicket win.
The tournament continued on Mon-
day night and this time Longdenville
was in awesome form, winning by eight
wickets. They got over the line against
Secret Storm by eight wickets. Secret
batted well to post a challenging score
of 142/5 in 20 overs. They must have
fancied their chances of winning this
encounter but Longdenville romped to
victory at 143/2 in just 14 overs.
Organiser Vishal Ramnarine speak-
ing to Guardian Media said: "Come out
and support the first ever pink ball night
cricket T20 Blitz. We have some great
teams playing and the quality of cricket
Ramnarine added that Penal has be-
come a hub for local cricket and he is
very happy to have his tournament in
"We are looking forward to great
cricket in this league. We have worked
very hard to bring it on stream and the
community has been coming out to sup-
port the cricket. The pink ball is a great
addition to the cricket landscape and
the players are all very excited to play
with it during the tournament. We are
hoping that some good cricketers can be
found through our cricket tournament,
who can go on to greater things."
