An energetic half-century stand between Super Centre Spartan openers Rashidi Boucher and Akeem Springer against Sagicor UWI provided typical T20 cricket entertainment but rain forced an early abandonment of the first of two Sagicor General Twenty20 quarter-finals scheduled yesterday for Kensington Oval. The no-decision ensured an easy path to the semi-finals for UWI, by virtue of having won their group compared with Spartan’s fourth place finish. In 11 overs before the match was called off, Spartan posted a healthy 74 for two. The first rain interruption came after four overs by which time Spartan, having won the toss, had reached 26 without loss. Following a break of close to two hours, the match was revised to a 14-over per side contest but with three overs of Spartan’s allotment still to be bowled the rain returned to force a premature end to what was building into a competitive affair. Boucher clouted consecutive sixes off leg-spinner Akeem Dewar on his way to scoring 28 off 24 deliveries, while Springer also counted a couple sixes in his topscore of 36 not out off 31 balls. Persistent rain following the abandonment also left some doubt over the second match between Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme and CGI Maple, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. (PH)
