Cayman Islands

Cayman Islands 20/20 tournament

Will Luke

Bragging rights belong to BrightStaff Greenies Too as they moved into the CLICO Cayman 20/20 Division 2 finals, having won their semi final match and looked on as their more illustrious counterparts went down. In an attempt to qualify for both divisions finals, the Greenies crew came out in their numbers but it was not to be.

It was tension at Table Rock or Smith Road Oval as both Division 2 semi finals had nail biting close finishes. BrightStaff Greenies Too overcame a strong challenge from Cayman Brac and rallied to victory by 8 runs. West Bay had a closer victory over youthful UCCI by only 1 run.

In Division 1 ESSO defeated Heineken Greenies 1 by 6 wickets in a low scoring game and By Rite benefiting from at least 4 dropped catches easily defeated Prison.

It’s on to the Grand Finals. Can BrightStaff Greenies Too continue their dream run and hold of 2007 champions West Bay, and will 2007 champions By Rite be strong enough to handle ESSO?

Although there are no million dollar jackpots waiting on the winners, the fun, thrills, excitement and most of all bragging rights are at stake. Cayman Masters will be providing the refreshments. Don’t miss it!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
