LIME are BCL T20 champs
LIME, bolstered by the inclusion of Barbados and West Indies ‘A’ all-rounder Ashley Nurse and T20 specialist Javon Searles, proved too strong for Old Brigand Melbourne and strolled to a comfortable victory by 24 runs in yesterday’s final of the Barbados Cricket League’s Twenty20 competition.
In the match played before a buoyant, bumper crowd that would have been the envy of the sponsors of the leading domestic limited-overs competitions, a winning target of 152 proved too stiff for the Haynesville, St James-based Melbourne, who stumbled to 127 for nine in 20 overs after dismissing the champions for 151 with one ball remaining.
