The National Cricket Coach is extremely happy with Cayman’s performance in the Stanford 20/20 tournament.
‘One of the greatest moments for me in Cayman cricket was seeing Cayman winning in the 20/20 game. For 3 ½ hours, Cayman was in the eyes of the world.
‘For once, our size was not a relevant issue. I’m also very proud of the way the Caymanian players carried themselves abroad,’ says Cayman Islands National Coach Theo Cuffy.
The Cayman team had a resounding victory over Bahamas on the first day of the Stanford 20/20 tournament. Cayman batted 175 for 4, beating the Bahamas score of 118 for 9 by 57 runs in 20 overs.
Cayman will play its next game on 25 July against 1-day cricket champs Trinidad. The team will fly to Antigua, where all the matches will be played, this weekend.
‘Cayman cricket is on the rise. I feel very positive from an administrative point of view. As national coach, I’m pleased with the support from the Cayman fans. Our players have collectively taken Cayman cricket to the next level. Now is the time for us to enjoy this moment,’ Coach Cuffy said
Coach Cuffy also took time to give his gratitude to all sponsors that made the trip successful.
‘I would like to thank the CI government for all they have done for cricket. On the local scene, Money Express must also be thanked.
‘In addition, I would like to give immense thanks to our main sponsors Cable and Wireless (C&W). C&W has been behind us for the last 11 years. We have truly cherished their commitment to us.’
