Four time Defending SLNCA Premier League Cricket Champions South Castries for only the second time in the last eight years, failed to capture the Premier League title. On the weekend they lost by 9 wickets to neighbours Central Castries in the two day final at the Beausejour Cricket Ground.
Central’s victory was due largely to the efforts of captain Jamal James who stroked a tournament high 147 runs in his team’s total of 273, and fast bowler Loic Prosper’s first inning’s spell of 8/51 in bowler friendly conditions.
South Castries 167 – Orie Changoo 45, Collinus Callender 24, Loic Prosper 8/51
And 135 – Collinus Callender 61*, Wade Clovis 34, Alvin Prosper 4/35
Central Castries 273 – Jamal James 147, Gaspard Prosper 38, Bryan Calixte 4/93, Bradley Giddins 3/40
