Heavy rains played havoc with the local season last weekend, causing the cancellation of all matches in primary schools as well as area men’s and women’s leagues. Interestingly, it was a welcome break as Cayman senior cricketers have been at it from January and the charge for championship honours is now set to begin.
The Primary Schools’ league conducted by the Cayman Islands Ministry of Education and sponsored by LIME is in progress with matches played on Fridays at the Sir John A. Cumber Primary School ground, Smith Road Oval and at Prospect Primary School. Catch a more in-depth report next week.
In Division One, Greenies 1 lead having remained unbeaten in the round one matches over 40 overs. The longer playing time available now allows league to be played over 50 overs. With some outstanding performances thus far, Greenies 1 are the top team.
Considering Heineken are their main sponsors, choice of tipple should not be an issue. Sitting close in second are By Rite.
The Cayman Islands next international tournament is nine months away, set for Malaysia.
In Division Two, it’s a two-team race in this division as Aims Consultants on 35 points have completed their matches, but Esso Cubs has one match remaining against Chillies and is within a chance.
In the women’s league, Panthers are runaway champions for another year, having played unbeaten throughout the season. Greenies did well, too, thanks to big hitter Carmel Harms.
With a final match coming up Sunday, Stingrays have a chance to inflict the first defeat on Panthers, but will not change the leadership position.
