Home team Suprizers locked away RSVG Police recently at the Keartons Playing Field to finish at the top of the heap in the National Lotteries Authority Bagga T/20 Softball Cricket Competition.{{more}}

In a high drama match, which included the teams having to play the super over, Suprizers got off to a sluggish start, but managed 83 for 8 from their 20 overs.

National footballer Roy Richards was Suprizers’ best batsman with 36. Suprizers’ final total was also propped up by 36 extras, as the lawmen did not display much discipline.

Malcolm Alexander took 3 for 13 and Osrick James hauled in 3 for 14.

Police, without several of their keys players, laboured in the response, and were dismissed for 83 in 19.5 overs, as the match ended in a tie.

Gerald Gould was the mainstay of Police’s innings, as he made 23. His demise by the run out route added the final twist to the proceedings. Calvert Cordice was the pick of Surprizers’ bowling, as he captured 4 for 13.

The tie then allowed the super over to come into play.

Police scored six runs from their one over.

Surprizers achieved the seven runs needed for the loss of one wicket. Again, it was some poor cricket on the part of the law officers, as they assisted in Surprizers crossing the line, by contributing a couple wides, and a no ball.

Last Saturday’s final was a repeat of the 2010 edition, but in that case, Police had triumphed.

Police were seeking their third straight hold on the competition, but were denied by Surprizers, who adopted a never say die attitude.

The presentation of prizes in the competition will take place at a date and time to be announced.(RT)
