It was a case of so close and still so far. Cayman Brac fell short by 6 runs to qualify for the MONEY EXPRESS Division 2 Knock Out Final. On this historic occasion, Cayman Brac players rose to the challenge but in the end, Welly’s ICC total proved just enough.
Led by Charlie Best entertaining knock of 99 n.o. which contained 11 fours and 3 sixes, Welly’s ICC totalled 251 for 5 wickets in their allotted 32 overs. Other contributors were Clive Kelly 52 n.o. and Gerard Christian 40. Due to a sudden shower of rain, the match was reduced utilising the Duckworth/Lewis international system giving Cayman Brac 27 overs to get 239 runs.
An exciting opening stand between John Reid 25 runs and Steve Coates 51 runs provided the foundation for the run chase. Good contributions from Sahadeo Sohan 37 runs and captain Wayne Taylor 50 runs brought the match extremely close. Welly’s ICC held their nerves to limit Cayman Brac to 233 runs for 8 wickets and secure a berth in the final.
It was a great effort by the Cayman Brac team in their attempt to win in the first semi final played on the Brac.
