(PRESS RELEASE) – With the last two group matches having been played this weekend (Ebony beat Morne Sion by 6 wickets and Caffiere beat Kehls Mongouge by 7 wickets) the semi final line up is as follows:-
Sat 17th Feb KEHLS MONGOUGE will play MORNE SION CLAYPOT RENEGADES. Dubbed as El Classico or Manchester United vs City this should be a great game.
Sun 18th Feb reigning champions and table topping EBONY will play CAFFIERE DARK PANTHERS. Having played two shockingly bad games (41 and 47 all out) Caffiere comfortably beat Kehls Mongouge to oust BALCA for the last semi final spot. Maybe they are coming good at the right time. All games are at the La Fargue Playing Field.
Another quick fire 63 from Sanjay Pamphile (Morne Sion) has enhanced his spot as leading run scorer with 200 runs from 4 innings but Junior Henry -177 including 60 at the weekend and Vince Smith 153 including 45 on Sunday with 6, sixes, are chasing him down. Mervie Williams remains leading wicket taker with 12 but the RISING STARS did not qualify for the semi’s so Elijah Leon (Morne Sion) and Johann Williams (Caffiere) both with 10 wicket have a good chance to over take him. Bronte Bess (Ebony) and Quint Mesmain (Kehls Mongouge) both have taken 9 wickets.
The Choiseul Cricket Committee has decided to hold the FINAL on Thursday 22nd Feb to coincide with the 39th Independence Day Celebration. The event is in the planning but we are hoping to have a five-a-side football competition, a domino competition, eats and drinks and some really good cricket rounded off with presentations and awards compered by Ms Esther Theophane.
