Cavaliers do it
IT WAS A CASE of who wanted it more in yesterday’s final of the Barbados Cricket Association Sagicor General Shield 40 overs competition and when the dust settled at 4:40 p.m. the St Andrew-based IDL Sand Walkers Quarry Isolation Cavaliers emerged champions.
Making what was their third final appearance, the defending champions easily defeated three-time champions Old Brigand Dover by 65 runs before a fair-sized crowd in perfect conditions to preserve their unblemished record in this year’s tournament.
After accepting Dover’s generous offer to bat first, Isolation Cavaliers proceeded to dominate their opponents in every department amassing a challenging total of 234 for eight which was built around a brilliant knock of 88 by opener and man of the match Jahbari Doughlin.
Dover held the upper hand early having their opponent 69 for three. However, Doughlin found two reliable partners, first in Jeremy Bowen (35) with whom he added 55 for the second wicket.
