Cayman dimmed Stars

Cayman scored an emphatic victory to record back to back success in the LIME Cayman Nations Cup at the Smith Road Oval on Sunday.

It was a fitting conclusion to a tournament that brought great joy and excitement to the large following of spectators which included Justice Charles Quin, an ardent cricket supporter.

World Stars won the toss and asked Cayman to bat first. Cayman started slowly losing Zachary McLaughlin with the score on 7.

Sticking to the plan, Darren Cato 40, Omar Willis 24 and Ronald Ebanks 41 ran hard, turning ones into twos and achieved the team’s intention of getting a decent score.

Troy Taylor 16 maintained the momentum taking Cayman to 148 for 5 wickets. Kervin Ebanks struck early and at one stage World Stars were 3 wickets for only 3 runs.

There was a brief revival for World Stars as Al Shields 29 and Paul Rampersaud 19 took to the attack but Cayman calmly and expertly lead by captain Ronald Ebanks kept grip and retained the championship by 64 runs.

Leading the way for Cayman was Man of the Match Kervin Ebanks with 5 wickets and his brother Ronald who as well as the excellent knock took 3 wickets.

Earlier in the third place play off, Jamaica ran riot over Bimshire Boys as Deno McInnis 60 with 4 sixes and 5 fours, Milton Johnson 35 and Conroy Wright 29 not out, took the score to 140 for 2. Bimshire Boys had no answer to the bowling of Wayne Cato 3, Carlton West 3 and Devon Williams 2 wickets. Jamaica won by 70 runs. Man of the Match was McInnis.
