Junior Bacchus – the cricket grand master


The SVG Masters 20/20 Cricket tournament has ended, but plans are afoot to keep those older guys in shape for whatever action that turns up.

The curtains came down in grand style last Saturday at First Flight Restaurant at Arnos Vale.{{more}}

Perhaps the toast of the evening was Junior Bacchus, named Most Valuable Player of the tournament.

He was captain of the successful Belfongo team, and his contribution went some way in influencing the result. He scored 159 runs in eight innings with a top score of 53 and also picked up ten wickets at a cost of 14.9 apiece.

Ajuba’s Leniff Hector with 13 wickets at an average of 10. 69 each was the tournament’s highest wicket taker.

His teammate David Ellis/Porter with 283 runs from seven innings was the tournament’s most prolific run getter. He had an average of 47.2 runs with one not out.

Inevitably, Bacchus, Hector, and Ellis are among 28 persons named in an All Star Training Squad.

The list includes MVP of the Final Samuel Holder, as well as Curtis King, Aaron Bascombe, Sylvanus Morgan, Theo Huggins and Michael Jack of Belfongo.

Jemmel Jeffrey, Federal Jeffrey, Conroy Ryan, from Ajuba are also in the party.

Monty Warner, Ted Roberts, Lynton Greaves, and Eddie Hadaway are the members from C.K. Greaves Arnos Vale.

Cool Veterans have three representatives in Orville Franklyn, Kenneth Lewis and Joseph Providence.

P’tani Masters have two persons: Walford Ambris and Augustus Mofford, the same as Stubbs, with Samuel Richards and Noel Jack.

Lance John is the only person from Barrouallie and Gosnel Cupid is the lone person from Police. Bradley Brooker made it from P.H. Veira Kingstown Masters and North Windward’s parliamentary representative Montgomery Daniel showed that he is good at other things besides politics.

Robert Jones is the other member of the party, the only one from South Leeward.
