Dale Richards produced a masterclass in batsmanship to shepherd Rocklyn Hardware Isolation Cavaliers to a first capture of the Sagicor General Shield Competition with a match-winning, unbeaten century against Nicholls Baking Combermere yesterday.

The schoolboys, four-time finalists, won the toss in batting-friendly conditions and were dismissed in 39.4 overs for a competitive 212.

Cavaliers, in their second final, and piloted by captain Richards made short shrift of the target, winning by seven wickets with as many as seven overs still available.

Richards, a former Barbados captain and West Indies opening batsman, toyed with the inexperienced bowling attack to slam five fours and nine sixes in a knock of 124 not out from 88 balls.
