Dwayne Smith joins Wallace, Currency with most centuries in BCA Sagicor General Super Cup
 

Barbados Cricket Association article.

Bridgetown, Barbados - Long-standing YMPC all-rounder Dwayne Smith has joined former Super Centre Spartan opener Philo Wallace and Romel Currency, who represented Sagicor Life UWI, as the batsmen with the most centuries (five) in the BCA Sagicor General Super Cup championship.

Wallace, a 43-year-old former Barbados captain and West Indies player known for his pugnacious batting and who served Spartan with distinction for 15 years between 1989 and 2004 after making his local domestic debut for Combined Schools (now Guardian General Barbados Youth) in 1987, first set the record by slamming his centuries between 2000 and 2003.

Currency, a 31-year-old Vincentian and Windward Islands player, who studied at the Cave Hill Campus of the University of the West Indies, hit his hundreds between 2007 and 2010.

Smith, 30, a seasoned Barbados campaigner with experience for West Indies as well in all versions of the game, made his first century in 2006 and his fifth this season.

Both Currency and Smith will be playing in the 2014 WICB NAGICO Super50 championship in Trinidad & Tobago, January 30 to February 16.

Smith is in the 14-man Barbados squad named last Friday, while Currency will be representing the Windward Islands, whose squad includes seven players who have featured in the Sagicor General Super Cup - Barbados' premier 50-over competition which is now in its 39th year. 

Apart from Currency, the others in the current Windward Islands squad who have played in the Sagicor General Super Cup and other major local domestic competitions are Alston Bobb (Republic Bank St. Catherine), vice-captain Liam Sebastien (UWI), Andre Fletcher, Dalton Polius (LIME), Keddy Lesporis (Banks Wildey) and Tyrone Theophile (BDFSP).

Next on the list of century-makers in the Sagicor General Super Cup with four are the Empire pair of Ryan Hinds and Alcindo Holder and Kraigg Brathwaite of CounterPoint Wanderers.

Brathwaite, a current West Indies Test opener, scored two of his centuries for Barbados Youth and the others for Wanderers.

There are also three batsmen with three centuries in Dale Richards, then representing Carlton and now with Rocklyn Hardware Isolation Cavaliers, the Intermediate division losing finalists for past two seasons, Kenroy Williams (St. Catherine; including one for Combined Schools) and Omar Phillips, the current St. Catherine player who made two of the hundreds for UWI.

Dwayne Smith's father, Wilbur Bruce, is on a long list of 18 players who have scored two centuries. Both of Bruce's centuries were for Carlton in 1995 when the tournament was played on a round robin format for the first time ever instead of a straight knockout.

The tournament was contested as a 40-over-a-side between 1975 and 2000.

Cup matches were brought up to international standard from 2001 as they were contested over 50 overs a side.

The Super Cup was launched three years later.
