The right-handed batsman, who goes by the moniker “Lash-I,” dispatched the Simple Sounds’ bowling, last Saturday at the Petit Bordel Playing Field.

John’s innings, which saw him lumping nine fours and the same number of sixes, and Bill Edwards’ 53, reignited the fortunes of the 2013 winners, Ruddy’s Electrical, who had lost their two previous matches, and saw them to 256 for 7 off 20 overs.

Alain Williams grabbed 2 for 44 and Fitzmore Edwards 2 for 56.

Simple Sounds Family, in reply, were 163 all out off 12.2 overs.

Junior Murray continued his good form with 79, as Ian Allen scalped 3 for 42, bowling for Ruddy’s Electrical.

But Ruddy’s Electrical was short-circuited on Sunday, by Ajuba of Spring Village.

Losing the batting voltage from the day before, Ruddy’s Electrical was bowled out for 96 in 14.1 overs.

McNeil Morgan was their batting livewire with 27, defused by the bowling of Kamali Williams, who sparked with 3 for 23; Reginald Jeffery had 2 for 11 and Leon Samuel 2 for 13.

Ajuba then raced to 97 for 1 off 10 overs; Kenny Stapleton was 50 not out.

However, it was Sunday’s first match which lit up the venue, as RSVG Police and Carlos James Peto Triumph United played to a tie.

RSVG Police scored 144 all out off 20 overs; Gerald Gould was 30 not out and Kenneth Dember 25.

Vangel Small collected 3 for 21, bowling for Triumph United.

In high drama and excitement, Triumph United was dismissed for 144, also off 20 overs. Desron Maloney slammed 44.

Kenneth Dember 3 for 16 and Romano Bibby 3 for 35, were the key wicket takers for RSVG Police.

Another three matches are scheduled for this weekend.

On Saturday from 1:30 p.m., Ruddy’s Electrical takes on Carlos James Troumaca Starlight, while Sunday’s double header features Simple Sounds Family and Somerset from 10 a.m., then Starlight and Robertson Surveying Future Legends, slug it out from 1:30 p.m. (RT)
