Tight finish likely in Upper Intermediate division after complete washout on first day of last series
Bridgetown, Barbados, November 14 – (www.bcacricket.org) - The battle for the 2011 BCA Upper Intermediate division title is now likely to be tougher for the two teams chasing front-runners Seven Seas Police after rain washed out play in all matches on the opening day of the ninth and final series on Saturday.
Police, on 39 points, are opposing relegation-worried Pine Hill Dairy St. John Cultural at Weymouth, second-placed Counter Point Wanderers on 34 points clash with mid-table Guardian General Barbados Youth at Dayrells Road and Ince Transport MTW, with 32 points and the only other team with a mathematical chance of winning the title, are playing J O’Neale Building & Maintenance Yorkshire at Friendship.
The winners will be promoted to the First division for the 2012 season. The last three teams, with the exception of Barbados Youth, will be demoted to the Intermediate division.
