BELIZE CITY, Tues. Apr. 24, 2018– Greetings from the Belize National Cricket Association (BNCA)!
There was a break in the regular Sir Barry Bowen Harrison Parks Cricket 2018 competition over the April 21 & 22 weekend to allow the BNCA to host the All Star Event.
There were two 20/20 matches played on April 21. The results were as follows:
For the Over-50, both teams (Captain Robert Panting’s team and Captain Edison Parks’ team) batted 135; so the winner had to be decided by average, since there were medals to be awarded to the winning team. It was determined that Mr. Edison Parks’ team was the winner, and Mr. Edison Parks was also the MVP of the winning team, as he top scored with 56 runs and took three wickets.
For the All Star, Mr. Gareth Joseph of Sunrise Cricket Team was Captain for Zone 2, and Walton Banner of Police Cricket Team was Captain for Zone 1. Zone 1 won over Zone 2 with a score of 167 to 162, with Herbert Banner of Police Cricket Team named the MVP of the winning team; he top scored with 43 runs and took two wickets.
It’s back to the regular competition on April 28 & 29. The following matches are scheduled:
