CAPTAIN AKEEM MCCOLLIN took the first wicket, held on to two splendid catches at slip and remained at the wicket on 32 not out when the winning run was scored, to hand CGM Gallagher Pickwick Juniors bragging rights in the all-St Philip final on the Barbados Cricket Supplies/Colonial Group International Medical Insurance finals day at Queen’s Park yesterday.

Co-operators General Insurance St Catherine Barracudas, who won the toss and batted, suffered a debilitating mid-innings collapse to be all out for 90. Pickwick encountered few problems in romping to 91 for four with nearly 17 overs to spare.

McCollin ripped off the edge of lefthanded opener Damarko Wiggins to give wicketkeeper Darius Joseph a catch with the third delivery of the innings, then snapped up a spectacular two-handed grab to get rid of Wiggins’ partner Shodantae Gittens off pacer Joziah Burgess.

From a position of 13 for two, the Barracudas recovered through their captain Daniel Joseph, twin brother of Pickwick’s Darius, and No.3 Jadon Yarde who put together 44 with Joseph leading by example.
