SAGICOR UWI’s dynasty in the Barbados Cricket Association’s Super Cup came crashing down yesterday, as pre-match “under-dogs” YMPC caused a major upset with a comprehensive 90-run win in the semi-finals yesterday.

When YMPC meet Sierka Rentals Maple in the final on August 7, it will be their first final since 2002 when they lost. On the other hand, Maple won the final in 2014.

Chasing 215 for victory, the dethroned champions were dismissed for a paltry 124 in 38.1 overs. It means that UWI cannot repeat the outstanding treble they achieved last season. However, they have already retained the Twenty20 trophy.

UWI started disastrously when Justin Bramble was run out attempting a single.
