Police and Delta Petroleum got the night underway with a match for 3rd/4th, which was comfortably won by last year’s champions, Delta, who after asking their opponents to bat first, restricted them to just 62-4 from their 10 overs, before Jagnarine ‘Sugar’ Persaud and Dhanpaul Chrisnanand launched an all-out assault in the chase to reach the target with overs 4 overs to spare.

Dhanpaul contributed 36 by way of 1 four and 4 sixes and Persaud 19 by way of 1 four and 1 six.

Immediately following the 3rd place game, an exhibition match was held with the BVICA U 15 team currently being coached by Reno Mittelholzer and Ken Alphonso.

The coaches split the boys into two 8-a-side teams, the Thunder and the Strikers, with the Thunder making 45 -2 and easily defending it as the Strikers lost regular wickets.

As the two Finalists warmed up, the models from Cedar White entertained the crowd with an array of Caribbean inspired eveningwear and swimwear.
