Links XI and Secret Storm shared the inaugural Nick’s Sport T20 crown, as rain washed out their encounter at Evergreen Ground in Pluck Road, Penal.
A good crowd braved the inclement weather to show for the game but after 10 overs, they had to run for cover, as the heavens opened and washed out the game. At that point Secret Storm was batting and had reached 54 for three. The tournament organisers then decided to share the title with both teams taking away a total of $12,000 ($8,000 for the first place and $4,000 for the second place), to be shared equally.
Organiser Vishal Ramnarine speaking to Guardian Media said: “We are disappointed that the finals would end like this because the competition was very keen leading up to the big game. However, this is the first time we are doing this tournament and next year for sure we will be looking to move it forward by about a month, so that we can get in all the cricket.
“However, having said that, I thought that the tournament did serve its purpose, which was to bring the community out for a meaningful event. We had parents and children coming out to view the matches and this to me was so important. Next year we are coming out bigger and better and will be looking to expand in terms of the number of teams taking part.”
