MILLET Cobras are the 2019 South Castries Cricket Association / National Lotteries T20 Champions. The men in green defeated Bexon Oval Super Stars by 8 wickets at the Mindoo Phillip Park on Sunday 25th August 2019.
Sent in to bat Bexon was hoping that there would be repeat power hitting innings from their opening batsman Collinus Callendar. That was not to be as Callendar could only muster 19 runs before being caught behind. From that point onward there was a steady fall of wickets as Bexon was dismissed for 114 in 17.5 overs.
Adil Barlow was the main contributor with the bat with 30.
Aloysius Charles bowling gentle medium pace bagged 3 for 31, with Kester Charlemagne and Shervon Leo picking up two wickets each for Millet Cobras.
Needing just under 6 runs per over, Millet raced to victory using up just 11.3 overs and losing 2 wickets in the process. Their charge to victory was led by opening batsman Anderson Charles who stroked an aggressive 50 before being runout. There were also useful contributions from Kemrol Charles 30 not out and Kester Charlemagne 22.
At the presentation ceremony which immediately followed, the following awards were presented: MVP Qualifier 1 (Millet versus Crusaders) – Kester Charlemagne; Eliminator (SCCA U19 versus Bexon) – Lee Solomon; Qualifier 2 (Bexon versus Crusaders) – CollinusCallendar; Player of the Final – Anderson Charles; Most Runs – CollinusCallendar (236 runs); Most Wickets – Lee Solomon (10 wickets); MVP of the Tournament – CollinusCallendar.
