Hall century tops By Rite show

The unbeaten By Rite cricket team followed their first round victory against defending champions Prison with another outstanding display at the Smith Road Oval which has propelled them to a commanding lead for Division 1 League honours.

Top Cayman Islands all-rounder and By Rite captain Conroy Wright’s dream run continues with bat and ball but it was an excellent century by Ainsley Hall, hitting 111 containing 6 sixes and 5 fours and a more than useful contribution from Jalon Linton 36 which provided the foundation for victory. By Rite bowlers then ripped through a brittle Prison batting to win by 54 runs.

At the Jimmy Powell Oval in West Bay, Esso Tigers reversed the victory points on Police by defeating them in the second round clash. Esso Tigers captain Alistair Ifill 84 missed out on a well-deserved century as he batted sensibly on a low track. Boundaries were difficult to come by but together with Paul Chin 42, Ifill kept Esso Tigers in the match with well-judged singles and hard run twos. Esso Tigers won by 59 runs.

In Division 2, Greenies Too have joined Aims Consultants at the top having secured victory against Paramount by 82 runs. In other matches Aims Consultants defeated JJ’S by 5 wickets, Paramount defeated UCCI/West Bay by 7 runs and Chillies defeated Schools by 2 wickets.

In the women’s league, Panthers recorded their first victory against Islanders. With new sponsor Dr. Joseph Jackman in attendance, Islanders put on a spirited display but were contained by the more experienced Panthers. Panthers and national captain Molly Ann Moore 36n.o, Wyvonne Forbes 33n.o and Desrene Cox 21 were the main contributors. Panthers won by 17 runs.
