Chief coordinator of the ongoing 10 overs a side tape ball cricket tournament, hosted by the Youth and Sports Department and sponsored by the St. Kitts-Nevis Development Bank, Mr. Brian Dowe, took time out on Thursday to give an official update on the tournament.
Tomorrow Saturday 3rd November, the tournament will peak with two very intriguing games.
SDA Jets and Empire will face off, with both teams locked on 9 points and seeking to get into the top four draw.
The other scheduled game may well attract even more interest and excitement, as the bottom of the table clash, will see Rawlins taking on Highlights. Both teams are still on zero points and this should be a crowd pleaser.
Meanwhile, Dowe gave the official updated point standings as follows:
All stars 6 matches-6 wins-0 losses 18 points
GT United 6 matches-4 wins-2 losses-12 points
Calypso 6 matches -3 wins -3 losses-9 points
Empire 5 matches-3 wins-2 losses-9 points
SDA Jets-5 matches-3 wins-2 losses-9 points
Rawlins 5 matches-0 wins-5 losses-0 points
Highlights-5 matches- 0 wins-5 losses-0 points
He pointed out that in the matchup between SDA Jets and Empire, one of the teams will move to 12 points and the losing team will remain on 9 points. Run rate will decide whether that team goes ahead of the Calypso team, into the final four.
The semifinals will be played this coming Sunday-4th November, starting at 5 pm.
The first placed team will play the team in fourth spot and the second and third placed teams will also lock horns.
The grand finals will be played on Sunday 11th November at the ET Willet Park.
Prior to the grand finals between the top two teams, there will be a playoff between the two losing teams from the semifinals to determine the overall third placed team.
The winning team will receive a whopping $1,000.00 and the second placed team will receive $500.00.
Dowe stopped short of confirming whether or not the third placed team would receive any monetary prizes.
The general public is invited to witness what promises to be some truly entertaining cricket matches.
