Guardian General Saints have won the Super 40 Cricket Championship 2015, defeating LIME Radcliffe by 64 runs.
A dominating 71 by the elegant right-hander Sunil Ambris led Saints’ triumph.
Ambris played a usual classy inning, batting at number three. He shared in a 3rd wicket partnership of 94 runs with national senior team partner Desron Maloney, who was one of Saints’ drafted players. Maloney played a patient and intelligent 42.
In reply to Guardian General Saints’ 171, LIME Radcliffe showed positive intentions with captain Lindon James opening the batting with Gidron Pope. However, despite several attractive boundaries from James, none the batsmen went on to a credible score. Radcliffe eventually fell for just 107, much to the delight of the Saints supporters.
Captain Romel Currency was elated with the victory, indicating that the championship is dedicated to their manager, Foster Huggins, for his hard work and commitment over the years.
Senior player Kenroy Peters, who flew in from his franchise base in Dominica for the match, along with Sunil Ambris, shared this sentiment.
On the previous day, Guardian General Saints defeated Ruddy’s Electrical Unique Warriors to propel to the final, while LIME Radcliffe won defending champion Team Rivals in a closely-fought match.
