Five teams record victories in opening round of CSCA T10 tournament  By Ravendra Madholall

Five teams registered victories in the opening round of the Canadian Softball Cricket Association (CSCA) T10 tournament at Greenbriar School ground, Brampton, Toronto, last Sunday. 

After their regular-season tournaments have been cancelled this year owing to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the association invited teams from across the Greater Toronto Area to participate in this specially-arranged competition which has 11 sides competing. 

According to the structure of the competition, the top eight teams will progress to the quarter-final stage which is billed for September 6. The semi-finals and final will be played on September 13 also at the same venue mentioned above. 

On Sunday, it was excitement galore as both batsmen and bowlers provided great entertainment. 

The five victorious teams are: Dynamic’s X1 Sports Club, Softball Cricket Canada, Berbice Vipers, Leguan Boyz and Fearless Titans. Renegades Sports Club got a walk-over from KR X1. 

Dynamic’s X1 defeated The Entertainers by 25 runs. Dynamic’s X1 batted first and scored 96-5 from the allotment of 10-overs while The Entertainers only responded with 71-7 at the end of the maximum 10-overs. 

Shafraz Wahab made 39 for the winner. In The Entertainers’ innings, Paul Anderson scored 34 as Ashik Haniff grabbed 3-15 off his two overs. 

Softball Cricket Canada was in top form as they defeated Cambridge by 41 runs. Softball Cricket Canada raced to a formidable 106-3 off their overs but Cambridge only replied with 65-3 at the expiration of the 10-overs.

Avinash Sookdeo led the way for the victor with 29 and skipper Looknauth Ramsuchit contributed 26. 

Leguan Boyz and Pegasus were engaged in a tight tussle but the former emerged with a 12-run margin. Leguan Boyz totalled up 86-9 from the 10-overs and Pegasus only managed 74-8 off the 10-overs.
