ICBL Empire have added 15 000 more pieces of evidence to their claim of being “the home of champions” after they defeated Sagicor UWI by 26 runs to capture the Sagicor General Twenty20 Championship in front of a lively crowd at Kensington Oval last night.Led by a fine 37 from Barbados’ captain Ryan Hinds, Empire scored 152 for eight which was boosted to 161 after Sagicor UWI were penalised for a slow overrate.  Man Of The Match Kevin Stoute who is just back from his stint with the West Indies “A” Team, chipped in with 20 runs and captured three wickets.Veteran Floyd Reifer scored a run-a-ball 37 to keep UWI’s hopes alive but the Cave Hill lads stumbled to 135 for six as the overs ran out, thereby giving Empire the top prize of $15 000.
