A confident People’s Insurance Company (PIC) Liberta Blackhawks are welcoming all challengers ahead of Saturday night’s semifinals of the Cool & Smooth T20 Explosion but are relishing a rematch against Burton’s Laundry All Saints Pythons should they make it to Sunday’s finals.
Blackhawks whipped Pythons by nine wickets when they met to decide Group A on Tuesday but President of the Liberta Sports Club and former West Indies fast bowler, Kenneth Benjamin, said he would like, once and for all, to settle the argument of which of the teams is more dominant.
“I would like to beat All Saints because a lot of hype was made about the All Saints game the other night [Tuesday] and people were saying it’s going be a finals. We felt it was going to be a little one-sided honestly, but we weren’t going to come and say this because it’s cricket. We would like to let them see it wasn’t a fluke so for that reason, personally, I would like to meet All Saints again but if it is not then whosoever will, may come,” he said.
To get to the finals, however, Blackhawks would first have to beat a confident Caribbean Union Bank (CUB) Bethesda Golden Eagles in Saturday’s second semifinal at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground.
Benjamin is equally confident that once his players are fit, Blackhawks’ dominance over Bethesda will continue.
“They got a big score last night and Devon Thomas is here, Gavin Tonge is here so they should believe that they are as strong as they can be but to be honest, they are probably hoping that Liberta has that kind of a night and anybody would expect that. A team is playing well, they are unbeaten and somewhere along the line you will have one of those games where it’s so good or just a bad game so maybe they are just hoping that on Saturday night, Liberta has such a day,” he said.
All Saints and Empire will clash in the first semifinal slated for 4 pm on the same day. Liberta and Empire played in last year’s finals.
