Foundation Joel Garner Twenty20

Lodge Road, Combermere Old Scholars cruise into semis of Foundation Joel Garner T20

Bridgetown, Barbados, March 10 -(www.bcacricket.org)- Resurgent Norman/Roy Marshall Brothers Lodge Road and Combermere Old Scholars both cruised into the semi-finals of the fourth annual Christ Church Foundation School Joel Garner Twenty20 tapeball tournament at Dover on Friday night.

Lodge Road, seeking to reclaim the title they won in 2010, beat Erskine King/Darnley Boxill Foundation A Old Scholars by 46 runs, while Combermere Old Scholars silenced Lodge Old Scholars with a 61-run win in the first two quarter-final matches.

With another big crowd in attendance well past midnight including patron Joel Garner, the former Barbados captain and West Indies fast bowler great, the atmosphere at the cosy venue, which adjoins the busy St. Lawrence Gap, was further proof of the rivalry which has existed ever since the competition started in 2009 as part of the 200th anniversary celebrations of Foundation School.

Lodge Road and Combermere Old Scholars, who both lost their opening matches this season – and ironically the first two matches of the tournament - now seem intent on blasting their way to the March 30 final at the Foundation ground, Church Hill.

Following an opening partnership of 53 in eight overs between the Taylor brothers, Shanaldo and Shamar, Lodge Road, a community-based team, totalled 136 for seven off 20 overs after winning the toss.

Left-hander Shanaldo Taylor, who played for now demoted BCA Division 1 side Banks last season, scored only nine before he was run out but Shamar went on to topscore with 33 off 37 balls. He was fourth out with the score 79 in the 12th over.

Gadafi Cummins (16) and Vonrick Nurse (13), the experienced TeleBarbados Carlton Division 1 player, were the other double-figure contributors.

Pacer Rascelle Gittens, who plays for ESA Field Pickwick, took three for 21 and Kenville Doughty, two for 19.

Foundation A Old Scholars were bogged down from early while losing wickets including the potentially dangerous LIME stalwart Ron Bates for 12, and at the half-way stage were 51 for five.

Only Jade Padmore, the tall, elegant Pickwick left-hander, looked the part in topscoring with 29 at No. 4.

Andre Evelyn, the seasoned ICBL Empire seamer, grabbed three for 21 off four overs to earn the man-of-the-match award, while fast bowler Demel Lorde picked up two for 19.

The next match brought together an old school rivalry as the crowd grew significantly with the unmistakable Mac Fingall (towel over his left shoulder) in the Lodge camp.

But what mattered most was the exhibition on the field and Lodge Old Scholars were found wanting – a far different cry from exactly a week earlier at the same venue when they demolished a depleted Police side to book their place in the last eight.

Combermere Old Scholars, anxious to atone for their failure to reach the quarter-finals last year, scored 126 for eight off 20 overs after being 94 for eight at the end of the 17th over.

Man-of-the-Match Carleon Brome, the ICBL Empire player, batting at No.9, gave the innings a telling lift with 29 not out, which included four fours and one six.

Jomel Warrican, a left-arm spinner and improving right-hand batsman, who represented the West Indies Under-19s at the last ICCC Youth World Cup in New Zealand in 2010, contributed 21 in the middle. Opener George Harris made 13.

Stefan Gooding, the BNB St. Catherine all-rounder, took three for 23 bowling medium-pacer, while Jimmy Lewis had two for 22 and Matthew King, two for 28.

Lodge Old Scholars started disastrously as the lively pacer Khalid Springer, with vast experience for two BCA Sagicor General T20 champions, CGI/Sandy Crest Maple and TeleBarbados Carlton, grabbed three wickets in his first two overs as they tottered 27 for six by the eighth over.

Medium-pacer Calvin Watson, another seasoned campaigner for YMPC, tightened the grip and Lodge eventually laboured to 65 for nine off 20 overs, helped by a last wicket stand of 21 – the best of the innings – between discarded Barbados fast bowler Corey Edwards (11 not out) and Lewis (ten not out).

Banks wicket-keeper/batsman Renaldo Holder topscored with 15.

Watson took three for nine and Springer, three for 16.

The other quarter-finals are slated for Friday, March 16, again at Dover. Ellerslie Old Scholars will oppose newcomers St. Leonard’s Old Scholars at 6.30 p.m. and another first-time team, Deighton Griffith Old Scholars, clash with neighbours Joseph Harris/Anderson Cummins Foundation B Old Scholars.

The semi-finals will be played on March 23 at Church Hill.
