Bishop boasts of most 'five-fors' in Sagicor General Super Cup championship

Barbados Cricket Association article.

Bridgetown, Barbado - Derick Bishop, the Republic Bank St. Catherine captain and all-rounder, now holds the record for the most five-wicket hauls in the BCA Sagicor General Super Cup championship.

Arguably one of the most outstanding all-rounders in all versions of major local domestic competitions, Bishop, a 30-year-old left-arm spinner, who bats right-handed, snatched two 'five-fors' in the 2013 tournament to lift his tally to five - two more than five other bowlers.

His success is a big plus for spinners, who occupy the leading 'five-fors' in the 39-year history of the tournament, which moved to a 50-over-a-side in 2001 after being contested as a 40-over in all of the previous years.

The diminutive Bishop recorded his best figures of six for 24 against BCL at Bayfield in the recently concluded championship during which he also took five for 24 against YMPC at Beckles Road.

In 2003, Bishop grabbed his five-wicket haul - five for 21 - against Police at Bayfield. Four years later, he picked up five for 12 against Spartan at Queen's Park and five for 28 v Wanderers at Dayrells Road.

Next in line are five spinners - who have taken five wickets in a match on three occasions. They are: leg-spinners Sherlon Greaves (Empire), Dave Marshall (Spartan) and Tariq Hoyte (for BCL, Banks and Yorkshire); left-armer Sadiq Hill (Police) and off-spinner Jason Smith (for BDFSP and Police (twice).

There are 19 bowlers who took five wickets in a match on two occasions.

Philip Browne, a fast bowler, who represented Spartan, holds the record for the best-ever figures - eight for 19 - against BDFSP at Queen's Park in 2003.

Co-incidentally, two of six bowlers with seven-wicket hauls also had identical figures (seven for eight): pacers Roslyn Carter (Police) v QEH at Weymouth 'A' (1976) and Lloyd Thompson (Maple) v Police at Trents (1980).

Off-spinner Marlon Hoyte snatched seven for 21 for Banks against BCL at The Brewery in 2012; Empire left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican took seven for 40 v MTW at Bank Hall the same season; Renaldo Parris, the current Maple captain, who bowls either off-breaks or slow-medium, picked up seven for 24 for Combined Schools v BDFSP at St. James Secondary in 2002 and left-arm pacer Ryan "Vaas" Clarke had seven for 31 for Carlton v Maple at Trents in 2000. 

The most economical 'five-for' was recorded by medium-pacer Jamal Phillips, who did not concede a run in grabbing five wickets off 4.1 overs for Bristol against mighty Empire, who were fired out for 53 in 21.1 overs and lost by six wickets in a seventh and final round preliminary match at Old Coleridge in 2007 as the Bank Hall men were chasing a hat-trick of titles.

Phillips, then a 16-year-old student at Coleridge & Parry and playing in only his second Super Cup match, remarked: "I just can't believe it. This is easily the very best sporting moment in my short career."

"I kept the ball on a good length and had the out swingers going," added Phillips, who undermined the batsmen with accuracy and swing.

Phillips is now a regular opening batsman for Pickwick.
