An opening partnership between Ian Rotsey 35 not out and Andrew Ledger 33 set the stage for Greenies to easily defeat ESSO Tigers by 8 wickets and maintain an unbeaten record in the Division 1 T20 competitions.
In his last match before he heads off to represent the Cayman Islands for the first time in the International Cricket Council Americas T20 tournament, Rotsey stroked four boundaries and said he is looking forward to the challenge.
ESSO Tigers made 103 for 4, with only Alistair Ifill 56n.o and Ricardo Roach 20 coming to grips with the varied Greenies bowlers. After that, Greenies won comfortably.
Police secured the final position in the Division 1 T20 competitions semis with a nail-biting three-run victory over a fighting Prison’s team.
Batting first, Police benefited from a number of dropped catches getting good scores from Garth Bryan 34, Abali Hoilett 32n.o and Pearson Best 26n.o to reach 128 for 3.
Prison batted with one short as top batsman Steve Gordon was unable to obtain leave from work. Kevin Bazil 36 and Kervin Ebanks 40 lead the fight but Police held out for victory.
In Division 2 Cayman Brac, Greenies Too and Aims Consultants were easy winners against UCCI/West Bay, Chillies and JJ’S respectively.
