Bamboo All Stars win Barbados tournament
Trinidad and Tobago club 90.5 Bamboo All Stars won the second annual Bring Six And Come Regional Cricket Competition in Barbados last week.
Bamboo All Stars, with the likes of former T&T Under-19 all-rounder Idrees Mohammed and Seenath's Auto Bamboo Sports all-rounder Rishaad Harris in their line-up, ran through the competition, posting the highest score of the tournament, as well as bowling out one of their opponents for the lowest score.
The three-day tournament started with a loss for All Stars against a Barbados Academy squad, but they bounced back with victories in their remaining group matches to qualify for the semi-finals as the second place team in their group.
In the semi-final, the T&T side slapped a tournament high 129 for two in their six overs against Guyana's Prince Royals.
All Stars' batsman Ramesh Singh also hit the highest individual score of the competition in that match--58.
In reply, the Guyanese were dismissed for a tournament-low of 17.
Bamboo All Stars then defeated Barbados Academy in the final last week Sunday to claim retribution for their earlier loss.
Singh was named tournament MVP with the most runs and highest individual score, while All Stars bowler Rishi Mana finished with the most wickets and teammate Rishaad Harris held the best catch.
90.5 Bamboo All Stars Squad: Anil Tattoo, Rishaad Harris, Ramesh Singh, Rishi Mana, Terrance Boyce, Curt Joseph, Nazim Ali, Idrees Mohammed.
