GREENLAND, Tortola, VI – As title sponsors, LIME ramped up the entertainment off the field on Sunday April, 19, 2015 during the LIME Super Fast League Twenty/20 Tournament, while on the field the Cavaliers made short work of Seventh-day Adventists (SDA) to progress into the Super 8 stage.

Batting first at Greenland Field, Cavaliers rattled up 240 for 5, led by Teddy Nankishore, who notched 81, including seven fours and six sixes.

Kwesi Sinclair hit 61 while Dorian Auguiste supported with 43.

Collin Ollivierre was the pick of the SDA bowlers with 3 for 48.

In reply, SDA capitulated to 85 all out with a combination of poor shots and some steady bowling.

Claudius Bailey top scored with 24 as Vishal Bharat, 3-35, Dhanpaul, 2-16 and Jagnarine Persaud 2 for 14 sliced through the batting order.

The match also marked the conclusion of the first round as well as LIME ramping up their involvement as Title Sponsors.

Sponsors add more flavour to the excitement

This year's league is made possible through title sponsor LIME BVI, co-sponsors NAGICO Insurances and match ball sponsors Scotia Bank BVI Ltd.

Since the games began on March 8, 2015 12 lucky fans have won cellular phones, while others took home various useful LIME giveaways. This LIME generosity will last for weeks to come and many more fans will have a chance to win with LIME.

The BVI Cricket Association also welcomed the Nutty Banana ice cream to the Greenland field, adding more flavour, and boosting the economic impact of the league for local businesses.

General Manager of LIME, Sean Auguiste said LIME is truly thrilled to be the main Sponsor of the LIME Super Fast twenty/20 League. “Cricket is truly a Caribbean sport, always igniting the passion and competitive spirit of Caribbean people.”

He further said, "Teams in this tournament comprise nationalities from across the Caribbean, and even the world as I understand. It is no coincidence that this is all happening in the BVI, a true melting pot of people from around the world.”

Meanwhile, President of the BVICA Charlie E. Jackson said, "The BVICA is pleased to be partnering with LIME and NAGICO to host the exciting LIME Super fast Twenty/20 League Tournament.”

Mr Jackson said the BVICA looks forward to a thrilling competition, which guarantees to bring the crowds flooding to the Greenland Playfield.

“NAGICO Insurances are the sponsors for the regional cricket tournament, NAGICO Super 50 and we are pleased to be once again providing the support necessary to ensure that cricket, which is indigenous to the Caribbean, remains alive in the Virgin Islands,” commented Managing Director of Nagico Insurances, Mr Shan Mohamed.

“We stood by the BVI Cricket Association for many years and I can assure that NAGICO Insurances, which offers fast and fair claim settlements, will always be there for cricket.”

The Cavaliers’ victory now means the Super 8 teams are completed and they join Grenada, Vikings and the New Testament Church of God in group B, whilst the Royal Knights, Police, Vincy and Earl Tree Shotters are in group A.

Next Sunday, April 26, 2015 Vincy play Earl Tree Shotters at 11.30am with the game between Grenada and NTCoG to follow at 3pm.
