JAMAR “BUTTER BEANS” GRIFFITH produced a thunderous, counter-attacking knock of 69 off just 25 balls to power Ahmed’s Prosport Agency Double ‘O’ XI to victory by 43 runs in the final of the inaugural Oyee Brathwaite Twenty20 Hardball Tournament on Friday night at Rices, St Philip.

Griffith, came to the crease in the 13th over with Double ‘O’, playing against Bubba’s Sports Bar Sluggy and Noddy XI, uncertainly poised on 64 for four, and proceeded to hammer four fours and eight sixes, four of which came from the final over of the innings, bowled by former West Indies Under-19 left arm pacer Jerome Jones.

He and experienced former Barbados wicketkeeper/batsman Carlo Morris revived the innings with a devastating fifth-wicket partnership worth 114 runs from 47 balls to lift their team, who won the toss, to 178 for five off 20 overs.
