UWI masters of Over-40s

Sagicor Life UWI carried their winning ways to the G4S Masters (Over-40) Cricket Competition on Saturday.

UWI easily defeated Wildey in a low-scoring final by 37 runs at the BNOC ground, Woodbourne, St Philip.

Sent in on a placid pitch, UWI made only 160 in 30.4 overs but they admirably defended that modest total by dismissing former champions Wildey for 123 in 26.5 overs.

UWI recovered from a wobbly 84 for six through an important 58-run seventh-wicket between Ryan “Vaas” Clarke and Anthony “Dumb Boy” Young.

The left-handed Clarke, good enough to make an Elite century batting at no. 9 for Carlton, top-scored with 42, which contained four fours off 53 balls while Young made 30 off 35 balls.

Most of the spectators still felt that score wasn’t enough, but former Barbados batsman and one-time West Indies captain Floyd Reifer, who was skippering UWI, knows how to win championships as he has shown in guiding the university to numerous Elite Cup (50-over) and Twenty20 titles. (EZS)
