Cayman Cricket returning this September

Action in the Cayman Islands cricket circuit resumes at the Jimmy Powell Oval on September 13th, after a near six month layoff due to COVID-19.

The games will feature 4 drafted teams from a pool of over 60 players. “I expect the competition to be highly entertaining and competitive,” said organizer Ricardo Roach. We have some exciting players on show and I know that they will not disappoint.”

The North East Barracudas (NEB) will be among the four teams playing in next month’s games. “We are all happy to have some form of activity and we are looking forward to playing the game that we love,” said NEB captain stalwart Conroy Wright. “It will give our mind a break from the pandemic that’s taking place worldwide.”

The second team playing are The Bodden Town Eagle Rays, which will be captained by Paul Manning. “I personally think it’s a great idea after such a long and stressful time during the pandemic worldwide, it will bring joy to most faces which we all need at this time,” said Manning.

The West Bay Loggerheads will be lead by Cayman’s leading all-rounder Troy Taylor and the final team, The George Town Hammerheads will be lead by one of Cayman’s most achieved sportsmen, Ramon Sealy.

The first game bowls off at 10:30 AM on Sunday, September 13th, 2020 at the Jimmy Powell Oval.
