Mix Up Moods merrily take Stubbs Cricket title


Nutz and Rum Mix Up Moods did not need any boost to lift their spirits and were on the better side of their emotions, as they easily disposed of Third World, to be crowned champion of the revived National Lotteries Authority South East Development Inc T- 20 Cricket Competition at the Stubbs Playing Field, last Wednesday.{{more}}

It was more than a workman like victory on the Labour Day bank holiday, as Mix Up Moods romped home to a 59-run claim to the title.

Batting first, the right handed Rommel Currency cashed in on Third World’s bowling attack, as he struck 80 not out.

Currency, who has represented St Vincent and the Grenadines and the Windwards at the Under-15, Under-19 and senior levels and the Combined Campuses and Colleges in regional T-20, Limited Overs and 4-day competition, laced 4 fours and 6 sixes and shared in a second wicket partnership with Joey Welcome, which yielded 144 runs.

The left-handed Welcome, who has played for St Vincent and the Grenadines at the Under-19 age group, plastered 68, which was dotted with 2 fours and 7 sixes.

Mc Neil Morgan contributed 22 and there were 28 extras, as Mix Up Moods posted 185 for 3 from their 20 overs.

Micah Joseph was Third World’s most successful bowler, with 2 for 36.

Third World, in reply, could only make 129 for 7 from their 20 overs.

Micah Joseph, 34 not out, Dawnley Joseph – 28 and Christopher Campbell – 26 were their main contributors with the bat, as Mc Neil Morgan, who ripped through their top order, ended with 4 for 36.

One feature of Mix Up Moods’ fielding was two standout catches and a run out by their captain Elvis Pompey, which helped shift the balance early in the response.

The presentation ceremony will take place at date to be announced by the organisers.(RT)
