Maple take T20 finals
CGI Sandy Crest Maple might have ended second in the Sagicor Division One race but that was not the case when they met defending champions, Empire in the Sagicor T20 Finals at Kensington tonight.
Maple’s battery of spinners spun Empire to a 31 runs defeat for Maple to win the title for the second time and claim the winners trophy and a cheque for $20 000. Empire had to settle for $10 000.
Maple batted first scoring 127 for eight with Trinidad & Tobago’s Rayad Emrit top scoring with 39. Another T&T player, Dave Mohammed was the best bowler for Empire taking four for 30.
None of the Empire batsmen came to terms with the Maple attack with Don O’Neale taking four for 23 as The Blues were dismissed for 96 in the 19th over. Jomel Warrican came in at number nine to hit the top score of 22 for Empire.
