Bowlers in the Cayman Islands
Cricket Association’s competitions are enjoying the early start to the season
as they dominated the second round of matches played in both divisions.
In Division 1 Prison defeated
Police in a low scoring match. Kevon Bazil led the way with four wickets aided
by captain Saheed Mohamed who took two wickets. Mohamed returned to score 40
runs and together with seasoned campaigner Steve Gordon 35n.o took Prison to a
six wickets victory.
At the Smith Road Oval a nail
biting finish with both spectators and players screaming advice, George Hudson
hit the winning runs taking By Rite to victory by one wicket with two balls
remaining over Esso Tigers.
It was an up and down match as
first By Rite led by Kenute Tulloch three wickets and Conroy Wright two,
reduced Esso Tigers to 7 wickets for 40 runs before a rear guard action by
Robert Moore 40 and Victor Campbell 27 took Esso Tigers to 137.
At five wickets down for 62 runs By
Rite were at the receiving end before Zitroy Robertson 20, Leon Watson 24 and Omar Bryan 27 took By Rite to
within eight runs of victory. It was left to Hudson to win the match.
In Division 2, defending champions
Esso Cubs were taken to the wire by Greenies Too. Having made a small score of
92 runs in 24 overs, Greenies Too bowlers made the Cubs work for every run
eventually going down by two wickets.
Hinds made Paramount DTA pay dearly for giving him two let
offs as he plundered 78 runs with five sixes.
Paramount DTA set JJ’S a
challenging total with Victor Campbell scoring 67. It was not enough. JJ’S won
by seven wickets.
