Masters of their universe

Social Share

Marvan Atapattu’s not-so-old boys are the new kings of Masters Twenty20 cricket.
Atapattu’s Sri Lankan side had lost the first match of the CLOBI Masters Cup last week, but this week they are the 2010 champions, after beating the West Indies by 19 runs in an extremely competitive match played in front of a bumper crowd of almost 10 000 at Kensington Oval.
After the match,?Minister of Tourism Richard Sealy and Minister of Sport Stephen Lashley both said they were impressed with what the CLOBI Cup had been able to achieve in just two short years.
“It’s a Tuesday night, as we have nearly 10 000 people here. This augurs well for the tournament, and we hope it eventually becomes the official masters tournament of the world,” Sealy noted.
Lashley said the large crowds on hand every game night was an indication of how cricket-hungry Barbadians were, and that he was hopeful the Cricket Legends of Barbados could garner the interest of even more teams in the future.
