Two big clashes are on today in the first round of the Costley Construction St Mary Boscobel Premier League (BPL) T20 cricket competition at the Boscobel cricket ground.

In the opening encounter at 9:30 am, highly fancied Day's Mountain Strikers tackle the dangerous Jack's River Razors, while in the feature match at 1:30 pm, Port Maria Turbos clash with Mango Valley Lions.

In the first match of the competition, which is also sponsored by Chem Quip Water Treatment, Juta Tours, 7 Eleven Meat & Next, Boscobel Hardware, Sir B's Auto and Mayor Richard Creary, Jack's River will be led by Richardo Thompson, Michael Downer, Fitzroy Walker and Kemar Silvera meanwhile Day's Mountain, who boast a star-studded line-up, will parade Samuel McIntosh, Jesse Alexander, the Bryce brothers Damion and Andre, Kedar Brown, and Renar Ross.

Both teams have a host of talented players, but it is the Bryce brothers who most teams in the parish seem to fear most, as they are equally adept with bat and ball.

Day's Mountain Captain Samuel McIntosh said his team has a good mix of young and experienced players and was looking forward to a winning start. “We know that Jack's River is a very good team, but we have the quality players to come out on top.”

Jack's River's spokesperson Karla Cohen was also confident that her team has the players to stop the star-studded Day's Mountain. “We are here to play good cricket and if we play to the best of our ability we will win, “ the national female cricketer observed.

The feature match promises to be another exciting affair as Port Maria are set to parade national player Aldane Thomas, Richard Creary, and parish skipper Andre Creary, with Mango Valley boosted by the presence of top batsman Durrent Whyte, all-rounder Ellando Robinson, Milton Milts, and Brian Robinson.

According to president of the Boscobel Sports Club Wayne Lopez, both matches should come down to exciting finishes. “We have four very good teams playing this weekend and it promises to be a treat for spectators, so we are urging everyone to come out and support our BPL.”

Lopez stressed that the Boscobel Premier League was aimed at exposing the parish cricketers to a higher level of play, hence the ability of each team to field five non-parish players.
