Griffith and D’Andrade blast half-centuries for ESC

Guyana Chronicle article.

Georgetown, Guyana - Bouyed by his recall to Guyana’s national team prior to their sixth round West Indies Cricket Board regional four-day match against Leeward Islands, Trevon Griffith gave his teammates at the Esmeralda Sports Club (ESC) something to smile about, with another half-century.

Playing in the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board National T20 competition for the adopted club, Griffith, who last weekend blazed a ton against Kieron Pollard’s Queen’s Park Cricket Club, helped pilot ESC to 190 for 9 with his belligerent 60, against Tableland Cricket Club.

He faced 34 balls and struck five fours and a similar number of sixes and got support from his skipper in Bermine Cricket Club’s Anthony D’Andrade, who struck seven fours and two sixes in his 21-ball 53.

Former Trinidad and Tobago spinner Kenton Thompson took 3 for 28 off 4 overs for Tableland, who in reply raced to 192 for 3 from 16.3 overs, thanks to United States of America opener Steven Taylor’s 86 (10×4, 8×6) and 60 from William Perkins, who struck eight fours and four sixes.
