Gordon held the key as Prison lock it up

The Cayman Islands Prison cricket team did as they promised and came back in triumph.


Mohamed had a lot to smile about.

They went to Jamaica to play their counterparts from prison centres in Bermuda and Jamaica in an annual competition and wrenched the cup back from Bermuda.

In the first game at Prison Oval in St Catherine, Cayman restricted Bermuda to 152-7 in 40 overs. Bermuda got 153-8 from 36 overs with Wendall White scoring 67 and Aaron Adams 46. Kevin Bazil took 3 for 29 and Mark Purnwasy got 1 for 21.

Cayman’s Khemchand Dindyal hit 45, Lawrence Cunningham got 24 and Steve Gordaon blasted 19 in that game.

In the match against Jamaica, Cayman smacked 226-6 in their 40 overs. Gordon hit 79 not out, Dindyal got 34, Troy David hit 26 and Charlie Greaves scored 25.

They dismissed the Jamaicans – who also lost to Bermuda – for 136 all out to win by 90 runs.

Kevin Bazil was overall player of the tournament after taking four wickets in the two games, having two not outs and taking two catches.

Gordon amassed 98 runs in the two innings and got the trophy for the most runs. Overall, it was a very satisfying result for captain Saheed Mohamed who also made invaluable contributions with both bat and ball.
