Under-15

Sealy 61 wickets and 458 runs, Grant 666 runs, spur Foundation to retention of BCA Under-15 title

Bridgetown, Barbados, July 31 - (www.bcacricket.org) - In retaining the BCA Under-15 title, fittingly for Foundation, their two outstanding players for the season - captain and all-rounder Nathan Sealy and burly batsman Kamario Grant - featured significantly in a crushing 10-wicket win against Amaze Queen's College with more than a day to spare in the Final at Dayrells Road.

Sealy, a left-arm orthodox spinner, who bats right-handed, grabbed his eighth five-wicket haul for match figures of ten for 62 off 39.3 overs, and hit the match topscore of 58 as he ended a truly remarkable season with 61 wickets at a most miserly average of 5.74, plus 458 runs (ave: 65.43) including two centuries and two-half-centuries.

Grant, arguably one of the biggest blokes in the Tournament - in sharp contrast to several tiny players who featured in the Final - scored 54 en route to the highest overall aggregate of 666 runs   including four centuries and two fifties, with five not outs, at an amazing average of 222.00.

Sealy and Grant can now relax for a few days before joining two other Barbadians - Joshua Morris of Coleridge & Parry and Rashad Worrell of St. Leonard’s - in a 14-member West Indies Under-15 squad for a tour of England, sponsored by the Barmy Army from August 7 to 19. They leave for London on Monday.

Sealy has been appointed as co-captain with Andrew Rambarran of Trinidad & Tobago.

Now to the BCA Under-15 Final.

After winning the toss and dismissing Queen’s College for 135 in 60.5 overs in the first innings - Sealy sent down 30 overs including 16 maidens and grabbed five for 43, while leg-spinner Isaiah Folkes picked up three for 39 - Foundation closed the opening day on 65 for three off ten overs with Joshua Dorne on 23 and Grant on ten.

Queen’s College struck in the second over of the second day’s play when Dorne fell to Micaiah Simmons without adding to his overnight score before the destructive duo of Grant and Sealy took over.

The pair added 92 in exactly 18 overs for the fifth wicket to psychologically plunge Queen’s College into a state of depression and despair.

They fell within 16 runs of each other - first Grant, who faced 70 balls and struck four fours and one six in his 54 and then Sealy, who also received 70 balls and counted five fours in his knock of 58.

Once they were parted, effectively Foundation lost their last six wickets for 35 runs to be dismissed for 196 in 54 overs - a lead of 61. The innings ended 29 minutes before tea.

Off-spinner Preston Clarke took six for 47 off 16 overs after coming on as first change.

Queen’s College were bundled out for 61 off 18.3 overs in the second innings with only two batsmen - skipper Zion Brathwaite (15) and opener Simmons (12) reaching double-figures.

Sealy snatched five for 19 off 9.3 overs.

Foundation scored the required one run for victory off the very first ball and the match was over by 3.31 p.m., giving all and sundry a chance to enjoy a public holiday - Emancipation Day - on August 1.

The 14-year-old Sealy, in his third and final year, also had the honour of hitting the highest individual score of the season - 153 not out against St. George Secondary at Constant in the opening series when he also grabbed the best innings figures of 10 for 30 in the second innings. His other century was 103 off Harrison College at Crumpton Street in Series 5.

“I feel very good because Foundation went into the Tournament under pressure knowing that we were the defending champions. We wanted to retain the title and there was a little pressure,” Sealy told BCAcricket.org.

In relation to his personal success, Sealy remarked: “It was due to my confidence, hard work and my team encouraging me and backing me to play as well as I can.

“We are more of a bowling unit so when I batted, I knew I had a big role to play as well.”

A resident of Silver Hill in Christ Church, Sealy received his primary school education at Luther Thorne. He is a close friend of Jomel Warrican, the Empire, Barbados Pride, West Indies ‘A’ and Test left-arm spinner, who as his mentor, was present for the semi-final match against Coleridge & Parry at Briar Hall.

Grant’s highest score was an unbeaten 150 off St. George. His other tons were: 111 not out v Alleyne at Church Hill (Series 2); 111 not out v Ellerslie at Church Hill (Series 3) and 120 not out v Harrison College.

It was the third Under-15 title for Foundation in the last four Finals (they were led on first innings by Combermere in 2017) - and all of their wins were by commanding margins. They demolished The Lodge by an innings and two runs at Desmond Haynes Oval in 2016 and rolled over the Society, St. John school by an innings and 44 runs at the same venue last year.

And if you want to rub it in as far as Foundation-Lodge Finals in the Under-15 Tournament are concerned since the turn of the century, go back to the 2005 showdown when Foundation triumphed by an innings and 120 runs at Wildey, which was the traditional venue for the Finals when the long-standing Tournament was sponsored by Cable & Wireless, commonly known as well in subsequent years as Barbados External Telecommunications (BET), LIME and FLOW.
