Sagicor UWI survived a purple patch from Bayview Hospital YMPC amidst unrestrained drama, in a contest they otherwise dominated to win the Barbados Cricket Association’s Super Cup final by four wickets in a low-scoring contest at Kensington Oval yesterday.

Set 107 for victory after YMPC limped to 106, all out off 39.5 overs, UWI overcame several hiccups to reach 112 for six off 23 overs.

Two deliveries sprayed down the leg-side by left-arm pacer Gary Austin, that produced ten wides in the first over of UWI’s reply, suggested there was no fight left in YMPC after their disappointing score. That assumption was quickly dismissed in the remaining six overs before lunch which was taken at 44 for four.

In his second over, Austin bowled Aaron Daley with a full-length ball that plucked out the off stump. Barbados opener Anthony Alleyne, batting at No. 3, swung Dwayne Smith to the backward square boundary but then played over a full-length delivery to lose his off stump.  (PH)
