Emerging Players do it


Added 02 December 2019


PORT OF SPAIN – A dominant West Indies Emerging Players defied all odds to script a fairy-tale end to an astonishing campaign when they crushed favourites Leeward Islands Hurricanes by a record 205 runs to lift the Colonial Medical Insurance Regional Super50 Cup here Sunday night.

In a one-sided final at Queen’s Park Oval, Emerging Players made bold statement by piling up an imposing 293 for seven off 50 overs, with left-handed opener Leonardo Julien hitting a fluent 83 from 85 balls.

Faced with a record run chase to win their first title in nine years, Hurricanes folded meekly for 88 inside 27 overs.

Off-spinner Kevin Sinclair, with four for 20 and leg-spinning captain Yannic Cariah, three for eight, demolished the innings as the last seven wickets tumbled for just 24 runs. Left-hander Amir Jangoo was the only batsman to reach 20. (CMC)
