Panama youngsters defy the rain

Rain interrupted play in Panama’s league during the month but it did not stop the juniors who used the time to get some valuable practice in to improve their skills

Rain interrupted play in Panama’s league during the month but it did not stop the juniors who used the time to get some valuable practice in to improve their skills. Panama hosted six teams from the USA with the much travelled Houston Cricket Club (also visiting Mexico) being the eventual winners of the tournament.

In local competition a new club – Alianza Cricket Club – has shown surprising strength winning their first three games. The club’s success was due to good bowling performances by Ibrajim Boda, Tariq Daya and Irfan Tarajia. Their major success was a victory over last year’s champion Dada Bhai Cricket Club.

Selection has begun for Panama’s national team to ICC Americas Division 2 tournament in Suriname next month.
