Seon Sween then cracked 56 not out and Deron Greaves 30, to see Future Stars to 124 for 7 off 18.5 overs. This, despite the bowling efforts of Edson Williams who had 2 for 16; Shaquille Browne 2 for 17 and Casmond Walters 2 for 24.

In the second semifinals, Church Road Connection ran over last year’s winners Nuts and Rum Mix Up Moods by 77 runs.

Chasing down 149 and a repeat place in Sunday’s final, Mix Up Moods were dismissed for 71 in 14.2 overs. Only veteran batsman Sylvester Vanloo with 48 out, showed any resistance, as Nixon Mc Lean 3 for 1; Kissinger Mc Lean 2 for 9 and Dyke Cato 2 for 18, bowled their team to victory.

When Church Road Connection batted, they scored 148 for 9 from their 20 overs; Marvin Small led the way with 39 and Roland Wilkinson contributed 26.

Kirthland Thomas 2 for 21 and Anthony Richards 2 for 30, were Mixed Up Moods’ most successful bowlers.
