Sagicor T20 put on hold after St. Catherine appeal decision to replay quarter-final
Bridgetown, Barbados, June 9 - (www.bcacricket.org) - An appeal by Crane Resort St. Catherine over a decision to replay the third quarter-final of the BCA Sagicor General Twenty20 Championship against Bayview Hospital YMPC at the 3Ws Oval on Sunday, June 10, has led to the postponement of the remaining matches.
“The Crane Resort St. Catherine club have indicated their intention to appeal a recent ruling made by the BCA Complaints & Disputes Committee,” said BCA Director of Cricket, Steven Leslie.
“As a result we have to postpone the scheduled matches (QF3, SF1, SF2 and Final) on June 10, 11, 13 and 15 at the 3Ws Oval until further notice.”
YMPC protested the outcome of a badly rain-hit match, which they lost by ten wickets under the Duckworth-Lewis Stern Method on June 4.
Following a late start and a few reductions in the number of overs, YMPC scored 33 for four off seven overs after they were sent in.
Set a revised target of 37, St. Catherine responded with 41 without loss in five overs.
A Complaints & Disputes committee ruled “the match that was determined to be played was not in accordance with the Rules of the Competition”.
“Rules that had been in place for the previous 29 games in the competition as a result of which any variation would render the game null and void”.
It was, therefore, ruled as a “no decision”.
CounterPoint Wanderers were to oppose Massy Stores Spartan in the first semi-final with the other bringing together the winners of the St. Catherine-YMPC battle and Sagicor Life UWI, who boast of a record five titles including the last three.
