Soggy wickets have decimated season

Unusually heavy rains have played havoc with the local cricket season, but that has not prevented the players – especially the up and coming ones – from displaying their talents.

Sir John A Cumber remains undefeated in the LIME Primary Schools competition, although they got a scare from unknown East End last week.

John Gray High leads the way in the Mourant Ozannes Secondary Schools competition, so far unbeaten with a number of outstanding performances as the competition heads to the semifinal stage. Youngsters in this age group are vying for selection on the Cayman Islands national Under-17 team, which will be participating in the International Cricket Council Americas T20 tournament in August in the Bahamas.

By Rite continues to lead in Division 1 with a run of victories.

In Division 2, Greenies Too, with one hand on the championship trophy, are waiting on the final result of the postponed SOL Cubs match against Paramount.

In the women’s league, Panthers maintained its unbeaten run.

Cricket association technical director Theo Cuffy is disappointed so many matches have been washed out and hopes that the weather holds for the T20 season that starts soon.

Club matches will be played first before the annual challenge games, when Cayman residents form national teams and play each other, providing ideal preparation for the Cayman side going to the ICC regional men’s competition in the Bahamas in November.
