Stoute, Joseph top BCA Elite division averages, Bishop takes most wickets again

Bridgetown, Barbados, December 26 - (www.bcacricket.org) - One seasoned campaigner ruled the batting in the 2016 BCA Elite division three-day Championship, while the bowling averages were topped by a newcomer to the local domestic stage.

Kevin Stoute, the ICBL Empire and Barbados Pride all-rounder not only amassed the most runs (613) but also boasted of the best average (68.11) and the most centuries (two) as batsmen generally struggled throughout the season.

Off-spinner Larry Joseph, a 31-year-old Antiguan with first-class experience, grabbed 25 wickets at 10.68 runs apiece in five matches for dethroned champions Sagicor Life UWI to head the bowling averages in his first ever local season after enrolling as a full-time Sports Science student at the Cave Hill Campus.

Stoute, the Barbados Pride captain, also aged 31, missed only the ninth and last round of matches because of the start of the 2016-17 Digicel Regional Professional Cricket League first-class Championship.

He hit an unbeaten 150 in the second innings against Home Improvement/Sierka Rentals Maple at Trents in the first series and 118 not out in the first innings off Guardian General Barbados Youth at Bank Hall in Round 2.

Only one other batsman - opener Zachary McCaskie of Massy United Insurance Wildey - managed over 500 runs.

The 20-year-old McCaskie, scored 502 (ave: 50.20) and was second in the batting averages as well. He slammed the highest score of 154 in the first innings against CounterPoint Wanderers at Dayrells Road in the sixth series.

A former Foundation, St. Michael, Barbados Community College and Barbados Youth player, who also represented the national Under-19 team, McCaskie's achievement was even more marked in that he missed Series 2 and 3 because of professional duties in England.

McCaskie played for Coggdeshall in the Essex 2 Division 1 and also turned out for the Hampshire Second X1.

Joseph, who has played three first-class matches - all for Leeward Islands in 2013 - made an impact in his second match against Massy Stores Spartan at 3Ws Oval in Series 6 after he did not bowl on debut against Maple at Trents in the previous rain-hit series.

He undermined the Spartan batsmen with a match haul of 11 for 58 including seven for 30 in the second innings as UWI triumphed by an innings and 78 runs.

Derick Bishop, the veteran Brathwaite Construction/Crane Resort left-arm spinner, was again the top wicket-taker with 61 at 13.26 runs each to follow 85 last season.

Bishop, 32, also had the most five-wicket (six) and ten-wicket (two) hauls.

His best figures were seven for 53 in the second innings against relegated Police in which he had a match tally of 12 for 77 in Series 6 at Weymouth.

Another seasoned campaigner, Ryan Hinds, the UWI player/coach, was arguably the most outstanding all-rounder. The 35-year-old former Barbados captain and West Indies player scored 328 runs (ave: 29.81) and took the second most wickets - 38 (ave: 15.23) with his left-arm spin. He also had 13 catches.

The top wicket-keeper was Mario Albert of Maple with 37 victims (33 catches and four stumpings), while the fielder with the most catches was Wanderers' Jason Greene (14).

There were only 11 centuries all told, which represented a significant drop by virtually a third over last season. In fact, the number was the lowest ever since the promotion/demotion system was introduced in 2009.

In 2012, the Competition was rebranded as Elite from First division as it was known for more than 100 years. Since then there has been a settled number of ten teams.



Centuries in each season since the introduction of promotion and demotion: 2009 (65); 2010 (58); 2011 (32); 2012 (17); 2013 (16); 2014 (28); 2015 (32); 2016 (11).
