Super50 Cup - Akeem Jordan audio - 2nd semifinal
Rookie fast bowler Akeem Jordan spoke to CWI Media, after he produced a stunning spell to blow away a star-studded Trinidad & Tobago Red Force batting line-up and set up a sensational, seven-wicket victory for Combined Campuses & Colleges Marooners on Friday here, catapulting them into the Grand Final of the 2018-19 Super50 Cup.
Jordan ripped the heart out of the Red Force batting with a spell of 5-18 from 10 overs, as the Group “A” runners-up were dismissed for 92 in 33 overs, after they were put in to bat in the second, day/night semi-final at Kensington Oval.
But Kjorn Ottley, another T&T-born left-hander, not out on 39, and his captain Carlos Brathwaite, the WINDIES Twenty20 International captain, not out on 29, then ushered the Marooners to victory in 16.2 overs, sharing 41 – unbroken – for the fourth wicket.
The result meant that the Marooners will face 10-time champions Guyana Jaguars in the Grand Final on Sunday at this venue.
