ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Grenada Cricket Club will have their cricket credentials put to the test this afternoon, Sunday June 14, 2015 at the Greenland Playfield when they face the mighty Vincy Cricket Club in the final of the BVICA/LIME Superfast Twenty/ 20 League.

Both teams easily won their semi-finals last weekend, with Vincy beating Vikings by chasing down 143 in just under 15 overs and Grenada walloping the Royal Knights by 70 runs. However, the final should be a much closer affair, with two evenly matched teams expected to be going at it from ball one, scheduled to be bowled at 2:30pm.

The Greneda team will feature the highest wicket taker of the tournament so far, Rodney Marryshow, and the highest aggregate run scorer, Derol Redhead, who are both currently holders of the Nagico green caps. They are in line to receive $500 each in prize money courtesy of tournament sponsors Nagico Insurances if they can maintain their performances through the final and not be overtaken by some of the other star performers on show.

2014 champions, Vikings will play arch rivals Royal Knights at 10:00am in a battle for third place.

In addition, the BVI Cricket Association will present a cheque of two thousand dollars to the winning team, one thousand dollars to the runner up and five hundred dollars to the third placed team. In addition, the man of the match for the final will receive a cheque for two hundred dollars.

Tournament sponsor, LIME, will give a prize of the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 phone with a data package to the player of the tournament.  

Aside from the cricket, the LIME T20 League matches have become synonymous with a vibrant atmosphere, featuring dance and singing performances, smartphone raffles for spectators, half time shows, a great selection of food and after match parties.

The final promises to bring spectators to all of this and more. 

The BVICA thanks the main sponsor of the tournament, LIME, as well as co-sponsors Nagico Insurances, Scotiabank, as well as Rugga Bar and Sounds who are sponsors of the Umpires, for all their support in putting together what has been a very successful tournament.

Their assistance aids the BVICA in its main mission, which is to develop cricket in the territory and ensure that the VI’s youth have the opportunity to participate at a competitive level in the regional cricket infrastructure.
