T&T passes banner to Guyana, new T20 regional champs
July 31, 2010
1

Join us in congratulating the Guyanese team.  Against all odds, they are the new regional Twenty-20 champions and get to compete in that T-20 tournament where a lot of money are up for grabs, particularly to the top 3 finishers.  You may recall that T&T, defending regional champions, finished second and their players were “paid”.

Heroics by who?  Heroics by Jonathan Foo.  Foo is perhaps the man of the tournament with his unbeaten knocks.  This time, he was 42 unbeaten.  With 3 balls left, Guyana needed 3 to win with Searles bowling for Barbados.  Foo took a single, a decision questioned and perhaps criticized by the commentators.  But it turned out to be a good decision because, on the penultimate delivery, tailender Devendra Bishoo hit the 2 runs required to cement the win.

Congratulations to the NEW regional champs, Guyana, overcoming powerhouses like T&T and Barbados.  In the 3rd-place match, T&T proved that their original win over Jamaica was no fluke and brushed them aside easily in a rain-shortened match.  T&T won by 10 wickets.

So, it’s Guyana, Barbados, T&T… first, second, third respectively.  There is no consolation prize.  It’s winner takes all… the trip to the tournament where Guyana will compete against some very strong T-20 world sides.  Let’s cheer on our Guyanese friends.

Oh, and don’t be surprised to see the next West Indies T20 side include Jonathan Foo (GUY), Darren Bravo (T&T), and Krishmar Santokie (JAM).  They did well this tournament.
