Choosing to bat, Prisons owe their total of 96 all out to Kemall Ellis, who slammed 54. The lone batsman to register double digits, Ellis struck seven sixes and one four, before he was dismissed in the 19th over.

Ellis was severe on Fitzmore Edwards, whom he struck for four sixes in one over.

Prisons bowlers were led by Kezzie Lewis – 3 for 7, Winston Samuel – 3 for 14 and Okeiph Andrews – 2 for 10, who tightened the shackles, as Hillview were dismissed for 72 in 18.3 overs.

Hillview’s total was aided by 20 extras, which were conceded by Prisons.


For winning this year’s edition, Prisons collected $1,000, a trophy and five cases of products from the sponsors, while Hillview earned $600, a trophy and two cases of the St Vincent Brewery’s products.

Taking the prize for scoring the most runs – 207, was Valley Boys’ Stein Joseph.

There was a tie for the most wickets, as Hillview’s Milton Trumpet and Valley Boys’ Kerwin Browne both captured 20.

Also receiving awards were those batsmen who had individual scores of 50 runs or more. The recipients were Calvert Cordice, Roderick John, Stein Joseph, Garvin Davis and Okeiph Andrews.

Meanwhile, Kezzy Lewis and Kiesel Francis were the bowlers who took five wickets in an innings.

The achievements by the batsmen and bowlers were rewarded with complimentary beverages.
