Grenada Masters Retains Championship Title

Grenada Masters Retains Championship Title

The Grenada Masters have retained the sixth edition of the annual, Carriacou Masters Cricket tournament, for a second consecutive year.

Opener McDonald slammed an aggressive 58, and captain John Sylvester 35, as Grenada raced to 145 for 4 to secure a six wicket victory over New York Masters in Sunday’s finals. They took home the winning trophy and US $ 3,000.00.  Earlier, tight bowling by the Grenada Masters restricted the former champions to 144 for 4 off their allotted 20 overs, former Windward Islands Opener, Danly Joseph top scored with a stylish 69.  Joel Cadore had 2 for 20 and John Sylvester 2 for 31.

Danly Joseph was voted the tournament’s Most Valuable Player for his 203 runs at an average of 67.66.  The most wickets went to, Christopher Greenidge of Grenada Masters with six while former Jamaica opener Delroy Morgan of the New York Masters  took home the award for the most runs.

New York Masters secured the first runner up prize, St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Masters second runner up and St. Vincent and the Grenadines Masters third runner up.   The other three participating teams were, St. Mark’s Masters, Carriacou Masters and L’Esterre Masters.

Captain of the victorious Grenada Masters John Sylvester said, that despite some low scores he was pleased with the manner in which his bowlers stood up to the task. He said that although they were a bit depleted with some of their players unable to participate due to the West Indies vs. England test match at the stadium, they were able to use their resources wisely to capture the championship title.  What he said is sweet about the victory was the fact that the New York Masters came with strong players this year but still “they had to settle for second place behind Grenada Masters.”

Founder and chief organizer of the growing event, George Andrew, described this year as the most successful ever. He pointed out that most of the cricketers came with their families which he said provided an excellent boost to the economy.  Andrew is already forecasting more teams for the 2016 season. Negotiations have already begun with one team from England.
