All-round JICSA complete big win

Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
Jamaica Inter-Collegiate Sports Association secured a berth in the final of the Red Bull Campus Cricket World Finals after thumping University of New South Wales by 10 wickets at The Oval.
University of NSW had not made more than 120 in any of their matches in the tournament, and once again, their batsmen came up short. Having chosen to bat, the openers Charles Wakim and Joe Byrnes added 31 inside three overs. However, Wakim's dismissal in the third over - trapped lbw by seamer Herman Henry - was the beginning of a slide that cost University of NSW five wickets for 30 runs.
Brandon McLean (25) and Marcus Atallah (24) guided the team towards the 100-run mark, but incisive bowling from JICSA, led by the offspinner Pete Salmon, meant that University of NSW could only make 115 for 8 from their 20 overs. Salmon and Henry both snared two wickets apiece, but Salmon was the more economical of the two, going for just 16 runs from his four overs.
JICSA were hardly troubled chasing a paltry total, as their openers Oraine Williams and Oshane Walters both raised half-centuries to take the team home in 12.2 overs. Williams struck six fours and two sixes during his 44-ball 54, while Walters made 53 off 30 balls, with four fours and a similar amount of sixes.
JICSA will now play the winner of the second semi-final between Assupol TUKS and Rizvi Mumbai in the final, at the same venue.
