URGENT: St. Catherine confirmed as BCA Elite division champions after Spartan protest is dismissed

Bridgetown, Barbados, December 14 - (www.bcacricket.org) - Brathwaite Construction/Crane Resort St. Catherine have been confirmed as champions of the 2016 BCA Elite division three-day Competition.

The decision was announced in a Press release this afternoon after a protest by Massy Stores Spartan in a no-decision against Police in which not a ball was bowled because of wet conditions in their ninth and last round match at Weymouth on November 12, 19 and 20, was unanimously dismissed by a BCA Complaints and Disputes Committee at a meeting on Tuesday evening.

"The Complaints and Disputes Committee of the Barbados Cricket Association, hereafter referred to as the 'Committee', met on Tuesday, December 13, 2016 to deliberate on a protest lodged by The Spartan Cricket Club against The Police Club emanating from the BCA Elite Series 9 match played at Weymouth.

"The Committee after due consideration, unanimously found no merit in and accordingly, dismissed the complaint made by Spartan.

"The points earned by the respective teams for the No-Decision in the said match (November 12, 19 & 20, 2016) will therefore remain," the release said.

Both Spartan and the relegated Police were awarded one point for the match, but Spartan, one of four teams in line to grab the title going into the final round, were adamant that no effort was made by the home team to get the ground in shape for play.



Under the BCA Playing Conditions with the heading of "Fitness of Pitch and Ground, the Weather and the Light", Law 3 (8) shall now apply to all Divisions of the Competition.



"Home teams are responsible for the preparation of the pitch and outfield and should not do, or cause to be done, anything which would render them unsuitable for play. Any team or Club which neglects to ensure that the facilities are ready for play at the appointed time on any day, barring acts of God or exceptional circumstances, shall forfeit the match in question. The Umpires shall inform the two Captains accordingly. Regulation 1 (c) (v) applies.



See also Regulation 12.



"Umpires are asked to make careful notes of such occurrences and to report them to the Secretariat of the BCA through the BCUA."



Spartan went into the final round in third position on 85 points and were in line to capture the coveted title, with ICBL Empire, St. Catherine and CounterPoint Wanderers as the other contenders.



As it turned out, St. Catherine demolished Home Improvement/Sierka Rentals Maple by ten wickets inside two days at Trents and there was a draw between Wanderers and Empire at Dayrells Road.



St. Catherine duly ended on 104 points and claimed the title with big celebrations at their Bayfield, St. Philip pavilion on Sunday, November 20.



Empire finished second on 102 points, followed by Wanderers on 92 and Spartan, 86.


Spartan were hoping to win the protest and earn full 20 points, which would have given them the title by one point over St. Catherine.

It is the fourth time St. Catherine have won the major Championship (rebranded as Elite from First division in 2012). The other occasions were in 1981 (shared with Carlton), 1997 and 2008.
