Sagicor UWI are on high after another deserved title triumph in the Sagicor T20 cricket competition. What should have been a clear cut victory over CGI Maple in Sunday’s final at Kensington Oval, resulted in a bizarre finish when the university made their run chase. Batsmen Stephen Jacobs and Akeem Dewar opted to celebrate with Dewar’s on-drive heading out towards long-on. When Don O’Neal completed the fielding Jacobs was short of his ground with the wicket broken at the striker’s end. Amazingly it took several minutes of discussion between umpires Gregory Brathwaite and Jonathan Blades before Jacobs was given out and Maple captain Renaldo Parris told the media after the match that there was also an issue as to if the batsmen had even completed the first run. Parris also pointed out that O’Neal may have been impeded in his fielding attempt by excited members of the UWI team and supporters who gathered on the edge of the boundary. The confusion brought an end to a topsy turvy match in which Maple slumped from 74 for one after a solid opening start from Shane Ramsay and Pedro Agard, finishing at 114 for six. In contrast, UWI fought back from the peril of 69 for six to the eventual target inspite of a few scares and plenty of drama. (MK)
