Brathwaite and Crandon After Marooners Win Super50 Cup Grand Final

Combined Campuses & Colleges Marooners captain Carlos Brathwaite and Guyana Jaguars head coach Esuan Crandon spoke to CWI Media after the Marooners were crowned the Super50 Cup champions for the first time on Sunday at Kensington Oval here.

A whirlwind half-century from opener Kyle Corbin to follow a stifling bowling performance propelled the Barbados-based composite side to a six-wicket victory over the Jaguars in the Grand Final.

All but 12 of Corbin’s 72 from 53 balls were in boundaries, and he shared a record opening stand of 109 with left-hander Kjorn Ottley to earn the Player-of-the-Match award and helped Marooners successfully chase a target of 205 for a victory that gave them a maiden regional title in any format at the third time of asking.

Earlier, Jermaine Levy topped a defiant half-century from Tagenarine Chanderpaul with a return of 4-43 from 10 overs, as the Jaguars, sent in to bat on a slow pitch, were bowled out for 204 in 49.1 overs.
