Premier Division pair benefit from points
St George’s and Western Stars have been awarded the points from their abandoned matches against Somerset and Western Stars.
St George’s have moved on to 55 points and are virtually free from the threat of relegation, while Stars now have 29 points, 24 more than bottom team Somerset Cricket Club, who did not play their match against St George’s on June 17 because no umpires showed up.
According to the Bermuda Cricket Board’s standings, Stars have been awarded the points from their match against Bailey’s Bay, which was abandoned after batsman Derrick Brangman refused to leave the field after a controversial dismissal. Brangman was caught off a high full toss which he thought should have been called a no-ball.
Southampton Rangers lead the table with 85 points after seven matches while St David’s are second on 74.
