St David’s were dismissed for a surprisingly low score of 72 by Bailey’s Bay while Western Stars held on for a draw in a high-scoring match at Somerset Cricket Club during the opening round Premier Division Open League yesterday.

Derrick Brangman was the bowling hero at St David’s with figures of six for 26 as Bay made light work of St David’s, dismissing them in just 37.1 overs.

Only two St David’s batsmen reached double figures, Rudell Pitcher with 25 and George O’Brien with 11 as Dennico Hollis supported Brangman with two for seven. Bay replied with 73 for three with wicketkeeper Sinclair Smith scoring 39 not out and captain Rodney Trott 15 not out after coming together at 35 for three.

At Somerset, the home team posted 282 for five in their drawn match with Western Stars. Captain Jordan DeSilva scored 108 and Dalin Richardson a first century in senior cricket with his 100 not out on his debut for Somerset. It was also the first 50 in senior for 17-year-old Richardson who recently transferred from Western Stars.

DeSilva and Richardson added 189 for the fourth wicket to rescue Somerset from 38 for three early on after they won the toss and opted to bat.

“During our partnership he just told me to stay to the wicket and not to worry about my old team-mates because they are going to talk trash to me anyway,” said Richardson on the advice from his captain.

“At first they got in my head a little bit, I gave two chances around 20, but then I got used to the conditions. When I first went out there it wasn’t too easy, but once I adapted to the conditions it was pretty easy. I made sure I got my hundred, I had four overs to get the last 20 runs.”

Wendell White and Rohan Davis claimed two for 22 and two for 53 respectively for Stars as the Somerset innings ended on the maximum 65 overs.

Stars had a slow reply, scoring just 22 for two in ten overs before the tea break. Jekon Edness, a former Somerset captain, had a good knock of 82 not out against his old team while White, making his debut for Stars, finished on 42 not out as Stars replied with 165 for six from 46.1 overs when the game ended as a draw at 7.10pm.

Raul Khan claimed two for 23 on his Somerset debut while Tai Cariah, just 14 years old, claimed two for 18.
