Record-breaking Smith, steady Permaul are top #D4Day performers

Tue, Jan 23, '18

 

Regional 4 Day

Left-handers Devon Smith of Windward Islands Volcanoes and Veerasammy Permaul of Guyana Jaguars were the top individual performers in the 2017-18 Digicel 4-Day Championship which ended on Sunday.

Smith gathered 1,095 runs at an average of 84.23 to cover himself in personal glory. He became the fourth batsman to score more than 1,000 runs in a single WINDIES first-class season and establish a new record for the most runs in a single WINDIES first-class season.

It was a remarkable achievement for the veteran left-handed opener, considering he reached the mark in just 10 matches. He earns the Viv Richards Award and a US $1,500 cheque.

Permaul collected exactly 50 wickets at 18.90 apiece. It is the second time that the left-arm spinner has finished with the most wickets in a season. He earns the Courtney Walsh Award and a US $1,500 prize.

Jaguars’ Anthony Bramble effected 45 dismissals, comprising 42 catches and three stumpings, and was the leading wicketkeeper this season and takes the Deryck Murray Award and a US $1,500 cheque, the same amount that has been secured by Jonathan Carter along with the Clive Lloyd Award for holding 17 catches in the field.

Two other individual awards, chosen by the selection panel of Cricket West Indies, have been announced.

John Campbell of Jamaica Scorpions has earned the Malcolm Marshall Award and a US $1,500 payday for being the top all-rounder, having accumulated 603 runs at an average of 43.07 and collected 19 wickets at 24.52 apiece.

Shermon Lewis of Windward Islands Volcanoes has won the Andy Roberts Award and a US $1,000 cheque for being the most promising fast bowler. He collected 30 wickets at 21.70 apiece in his first full season of the #D4Day.

Champions Guyana Jaguars also pocketed US $36,000, comprising US $15,000 for winning the Championship and US $21,000 for winning seven matches.

For winning each match, the teams gained US $3,000. As a result, Barbados Pride and Jamaica Scorpions earned US $9,000, and Leeward Islands Hurricanes, Windward Islands Volcanoes and Trinidad & Tobago Red Force pocketed US $6,000.

PCL: Final Round, Day 4.

Mon, Jan 22, '18

 

PCL

Pride vs Scorpions

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Fast bowler Keon Harding's maiden five-wicket haul ripped apart Jamaica Scorpions, as they crashed to a crushing 216-run defeat to Barbados Pride here yesterday.

Resuming the last day of the final-round contest and needing a Herculean effort to avoid defeat, Scorpions found no such resolve after being set 350 for victory and tumbled to 128 all out — about three-quarters of an hour into the final session at Kensington Oval.

Left-handed opener John Campbell top-scored with 28, Test batsman Jermaine Blackwood got 21 and West Indies limited overs all-rounder, Rovman Powell, 20, as the Scorpions' batting struggled for the second time in the match.

Jaguars vs Red Force

Guyana Jaguars ended the season as the only unbeaten team to join Barbados (1977-1980) and Jamaica (2008-2012) as the only teams to win the Regional First-Class tournament for four consecutive seasons when they beat T&T’s Red Force by an innings and 81 runs on the final day of this year’s CWI Regional Four-Day competition at Providence yesterday.

Scores: Red Force 135 & 324, Jaguars 540-9 declared.
The last time the two teams met in this tournament in Trinidad, the Jaguars roared to an innings and 217-run win.
Set 405 to avoid an innings defeat, the Red Force resumed on 282-8 with Jason Mohamed on 85 and in glorious sunshine a handful of die-hard supporters, including the families of some of the players, saw Mohammed cover-drive left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul to post his seventh hundred at this level with his sixteenth boundary.

PCL , Round 10 Day 3

Sun, Jan 21, '18

 

PCL

Jaguars vs Red Force

GEORGETOWN, Guyana – Jason Mohammed was in sight of his seventh first class hundred but the effort appeared unlikely to save Trinidad and Tobago Red Force from a heavy defeat and their fourth straight, in the Regional Four-Day Championship yesterday.

Trailing by a massive 405 runs on first innings, Red Force ended day three of their final round contest against Guyana Jaguars on 282 for eight – still a further 123 runs adrift of avoiding an innings defeat at the National Stadium.

Mohammed was unbeaten on 92, an innings that has so far required 185 deliveries, 2-1/2 hours and included 14 boundaries.

Pride vs Scorpions

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Chadwick Walton stroked his 20th first class half-century to steady Jamaica Scorpions but opener Shayne Moseley gathered his second of the match, as Barbados Pride tightened their grip during their final-round encounter in the Regional Four-Day Championship here yesterday.

Resuming the third day at Kensington Oval on 93 for three, Scorpions rallied to 247 all out in their first innings, with the right-handed Walton top-scoring with 72.

West Indies limited-overs all-rounder Rovman Powell struck a quick-fire 43, while captain Nikita Miller chipped in with 27.

Innovation the mantra for CPL's success

Sat, Jan 20, '18

 

Caribbean Premier League

No matter the time of the year, it seems there is always a T20 tournament taking place. Right now, it is Australia's Big Bash. Shortly, it will be the Pakistan Super League and then the IPL will come along. The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will take place in August and England's T20 Blast occupies a similar time slot. With so many T20 competitions now in existence, there is a danger that they could all start to blur into one. For that reason, the organisers of the CPL are determined to make sure their tournament stands out.

The CPL is already unique in certain ways. It is the only one of the world's top T20 leagues that is not run by a governing body - it is a private enterprise run with the blessing of Cricket West Indies - which means making money for its stakeholders is an important concern. It is also the only tournament which is played at the same time as another leading competition and the domestic market is serves is smaller than most, too.

This year's edition of the CPL will be its sixth. After the third season, the competition's Chief Executive Damien O'Donohue confidently predicted that it would begin to turn a profit but it has yet to do so and it failed, once again, to make money last year. In an exclusive chat with Cricbuzz alongside the chief operating officer Pete Russell, O'Donohue says the business side of the CPL is "always a challenge" and the sponsorship of Digicel, the telecommunications company, is "absolutely vital to keep the tournament going".
