The Central Titans are 3-time champions of the JCA 2-day Super League Cricket Competition following a thrilling final day on Sunday. The Titans entered the final round with a slim lead over the Northern Panthers in the standings, but at one stage it looked like they would be dethroned for the first time based on the result in the Panthers’ game. The Titans comfortably beat the Southern Seals by 10 wickets.
The cup holders were bowled out for 231 in reply to the Seals’ first innings 113. Batting a second time, the Seals were going well at 99-0 and looked like they could save the match and possibly halt the Titans’ chances of a third title in a row.
By this time, news would have come in that the Panthers wrapped up proceedings in their match at Noranda Bauxite Ground where they beat the Combined Universities and Colleges by six wickets in a low scoring affair. The Seals then slumped to just 200 all out as Peat Salmon bagged 4-58 and Christopher Powell 4-35. Tristan Coleman 89 and Sherdon Allen 47, were the top scorers for the Panthers.
Set just 83 to win, the Titans then romped to victory without the loss of a wicket off just 10.2 overs. Devoy Smith 45 and national player Kennar Lewis 32, guided them home. The Titans have now won the title in all three stagings of the competition.
