A WELL-PACED half-century from opener Parmesh Parsatam and an equally responsible 37 from his partner Navindra Persaud guided Imam Bacchus Cricket Club to a comfortable eight-wicket win over the NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team when the NAMILCO 50th Anniversary Sports programme, Essequibo leg, came off last Sunday at the Imam Bacchus ground, Columbia, in the Cinderella County of Essequibo.A colourful crowd including well over 50 NAMILCO staff members, host Sam Baksh of the famous Imam Bacchus & Sons – host of the day’s proceedings – along with NAMILCO’s Fitzroy McLeod (Finance Director) and Atomaram Lakeram (Personal Assistant to Managing Director Bert Sukhai), all soaked up an absorbing day of action in very sunny conditions.The programme, which had been pushed back for a few weeks owing to the prolonged rainy season, was well received by the participants and dozens of spectators.After winning the toss and deciding to take first strike, NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team started well, but were kept in check by some steady bowling from the home team. Opener Travis Persaud looked the part in his innings of 38 off 26 balls decorated with eight (8) fours, timing the ball well as he set the foundation for their eventual total of 117-5.Imam Bacchus & Sons CC team captain collects anniversary trophy and cash from NAMILCO’s Fitzroy McLeod and Atomaram Lakeram.But once Persaud succumbed to the Imam Bacchus bowling attack, his teammates were not able to get the better of the pace and spin attack even though they got starts. Sudesh Persaud was left unbeaten on 18 when the overs ran out.Support came from Abdool Razzak (17) and Daniel Basdeo who was left not out on 12. N. Cadogan and K. Persaud were the pick of the Imam Bacchus bowlers with two for 12 and 13 runs, respectively.Needing to score 118 to win off their 20 overs, Imam Bacchus CC were very businesslike in their approach, led by openers Parmesh Parsatam and Navindra Persaud. The duo blasted the ball to all parts of the ground as neither of the NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team bowlers escaped the willow.Parsatam hit the boundary ropes on eight occasions in his match-winning 51 before he fell. And even though his opening partner, Navindra Persaud went back for 37, the foundation for victory was already laid for the winning prize of $50 000.Formalising the win were Yogeshwar Lall and Latchman Rohit who were left unbeaten on 16 and 13 respectively when the win was achieved. For their efforts, NAMILCO Thunderbolt Team collected $10 000; both teams were presented with trophies.During brief opening and closing ceremonies, host Sam Baksh expressed delight at being able to host the programme for the NAMILCO 50th Anniversary celebrations. He said that Imam Bacchus & Sons was more than elated to welcome Executive and Staff of the National Milling Company of Guyana.McLeod, in his remarks, stated that Imam Bacchus & Sons has been a faithful partner of NAMILCO from the time it started business in Guyana and the company thought it fitting to host such a programme there.Sincere gratitude on behalf of Managing Director Bert Sukhai – who was unavoidably absent – was extended to Mr Baksh, Imam Bacchus & Sons, players, staff members and fans by Sukhai’s Personal Assistant, Lakeram.He stated that the company was more than happy to give back to the community as they celebrate this milestone.

We saw the condition of the guys after the work stoppage that caught us all. A break could be felt, but we can say that the national team is at a satisfactory level. It is important that we finally get together and did these training sessions.”Musić also added:“There is quality among these guys. With the players from domestic clubs that we have now invited, and with the national team players from abroad, we can create a respectable team that will be ready to make good results in the qualifications.”National team player Ivan Bašić says that the players are in good shape:“We have done these preparations well. It is good for us that we are finally together and that we have started preparing for the qualifications. It was hard to keep fit during the break; everything is different when you are with the team. However, it seems that we are all in good shape and I believe that the break will not be felt on us when it comes to matches.”His teammate Salih Husić thinks similarly:“First of all, I am happy to be at a gathering with my teammates from the national team again. Although we trained during the break, there is a difference in working individually and as a team. Regardless, we are in good shape. In addition, we have a quality team and I hope that we will show that in the qualifications.”The U-19 national team players will finish their preparations tomorrow, when anthropological tests will be done.
