THE EXCELLENT DINESH R MAKWANA.
Richness of cricket is everywhere, just look at this story. It was by far the best day of the year as far as the sun and the weather was concerned. There was a serene calm with little wind and little movement. The calmness of the midday luncheons of over two hundred expectant cricket lovers was in little under one hour to witness the thunderous innings of batting excellence never seen in the watery tranquil heights of the Caribbean Islands. The English good luck charm was at the highest as the visitors won the the first battle and decided to bat first in the fourty overs war with the pace of the mighty West Indians against the subtle,clever,oblique class of the visiting Martian Maraiders of London. The match started on time with rampant Jamaican Teakers' Instone Benglin opening a fighting fast pace attack.
The UK had bought the talented opener Dinesh R. Makwana as their main guest player and what a find he proved. In the next twenty four overs he had smashed an amazing 24 boundaries and rushed to 200 not out before retiring with cramps. This Inning was chance less, punishing the fearsome West Indian pace attack with drives, pulls and hook shots only seen at the highest levels of cricket. His main partner, Vijay mustered a healthy 75, proving the huge divide and the dominance of the excellent Makwana. At the end, Maraiders finished their innings on 345 for 2 in their 40 overs and Makwana shining afterward in the myths and legends of the Caribbean.
The Jamaican Teakers did not wait either. In the first ten overs, Sobers and Wills smashed 110 for no wicket with Wills getting to 70 with three sixes and four fours. But it was Dinesh Makwana again, in the slips taking a breathtaking dive in the air, one handed slip catch to remove Sobers before repeating the same the next ball, with Brading gone for nought. The bowler Patel was ecstatic. The West Indians then collapsed and left the field in 31st overs all out for just 194, with Patel sporting heroic pace figures of 6 for 38 in his eight overs. Dinesh R. Makwana will be remembered in these islands for his breathtaking 200 not out and his exquisite diving catches.
