Guardian General Saints not only played unbeaten on their way to capturing this year’s title in the NLA Neil William T20 Competition, but they also provided the Competition’s top individual performers.
Saints’ captain, West Indies batsmen Sunil Ambris, was the Competition’s top run getter. He amassed a total of 363 runs, with his highest innings being 83, one of three half centuries he recorded in the Competition. He averaged 60.3 and had a strike rate of 148.16.
And as if that was not enough, Saints’ Windward Islands Under-19 player Jaheil Walters finished as the second highest run-scorer with 232. His highest was 68 and he averaged 29 with a strike rate of 134.88. The third highest run-scorer was Parnell Browne of RSVG Police One. He accumulated 223 runs, inclusive of an innings of 123 not out, for an average of 55.75 with a strike rate of 163.97.
In the bowling department, it was clear, as the Competition entered its closing stages, that the top bowler was going to be either leg spinner Geron Wyllie of Saints or Victors One’s Windward Island Under-19 off spinner Luke Wilson.
As it was, leg spinner Wyllie, with a heads-up on his rival as far as matches played, finished with 18 scalps to Wilson’s 14. Wyllie averaged 7/72 and had an economy rate of 4.99. Wilson averaged 10.57 with an economy of 6.43.
Taking the third spot among the bowlers was off spinner Othneil Lewis from FLOW Radcliffe. He captured 13 wickets at an average of 13.38 and an economy rate of 7.01.
