After eleven weeks of games and rounds of cricket, team Groundworks secured the overall win in this year’s BVI Cricket Association Corporate Cricket League.
The champions came up against BCQS/Antarctica merged team in the finals, played last Thursday, December 8 at the A. O. Shirley Recreational Grounds.
In a battle for third place, Delta Petroleum came up against the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force team. Delta Petroleum emerged victorious.
The day also saw an exhibition match by the association’s under 15 team. The team went through a sequence of impressive warm up drills and exhibitions of their catching, throwing, bowling and batting skills, followed by a 6 a side-6 over match with the under 15 team being split into two teams.
This is the second year for the tournament, organised by the local cricket association, whose aim is to bring together the diverse aspects of the BVI business and public services community, all while increasing exposure to cricket.
The tournament brought together 10 teams, who represented approximately 15 local businesses, with 153 registered players.
The teams in this year’s tournament were divided into two divisions, 5 teams each. Pool A teams were Delta Petroleum, Groundworks, Omega Caribbean, Road Town Wholesale and The Moorings, with Pool B teams being Royal Virgin Islands Police Force, Maples/KPMG (merged team), BCQS/Antarctica (merged team), Deloitte/Conyers (merged team) and Team Harneys.
