Wildey lift Super Cup


Share post:

It was twice as nice for Wildey, but the climax of Barbados’ premier one-day cricket competition at the 3Ws Oval yesterday was not one for the ages.

Wildey defeated Wanderers by 43 runs in a low-scoring, sub-standard championship match in which only one batsman made more than 25 runs, to secure their second Barbados Cricket Association’s (BCA) Super Cup title.

Batting first, Wildey were dismissed for a paltry 123 in 33.5 overs, with opener Zachary McCaskie, who benefitted from a couple of chances, topscoring with 48, including four fours, off 63 balls.

But they diligently defended the modest total on a bowler-friendly pitch as Wanderers, adopting a mostly defensive approach, hit only two boundaries in their ill-starred innings and were routed for 80 in 40.2 overs. (EZS)
