Superb Jamaicans take WICB Four-day trophy, make it fourth title in a row

Cave Hill, Barbados, CMC – Jamaica crushed Combined Campuses & Colleges by eight wickets inside two days on Saturday to clinch their fourth straight WICB First-Class Championship.

Set a mere 10 to win, Jamaica reached 15-2 to complete an uncomplicated victory with two full days to spare in the final at the 3Ws Oval and confirm themselves as the undisputed kings of four-day cricket. The only other team in history to win four consecutive titles in regional first-class cricket was Barbados when they won the Shell Shield from 1977 to 1980.

WICB appeals to media to seek credible sources of info

St John’s, Antigua– The WICB has become aware that reputable media organizations have published and broadcast a story about Ramnaresh Sarwan which did not emanate either from the WICB or from the ICC and can only be sourced to an anonymous blog.

Any and all issues relating to anti-corruption in international cricket are managed by the ICC Anti Corruption and Security Unit, which briefs players directly and informs the players’ Board as necessary on the status of any investigations.
