A St George’s cricket player pushed the Minister of National Security in a scuffle at Cup Match, a witness has said.

However, Wayne Caines said yesterday: “There was no fight, no altercation, no incident.”

He was speaking after a man at the match told The Royal Gazette he saw player Treadwell Gibbons push Mr Caines.

He added that the tension was quickly defused and ended after a few seconds and the two men hugged.

He said: “It started off looking serious, but then it was like they were goofing around.”

The witness said Mr Caines was among a small group of Somerset supporters who had entered the field during the game to celebrate significant moments.

He said: “It was on Friday afternoon, towards the end of Cup Match. Somerset had gotten one of the last St George’s guys out.

“Mr Caines and the Somerset supporters were going back on the field but the umpire must have told them it was too late.”

The witness said Mr Gibbons pushed Mr Caines and the two exchanged words.

He added Mr Gibbons said: “I don’t give a f**k who you are.”

He said they hugged before going their separate ways.

Another witness confirmed that there appeared to be an incident that involved the two men, but that he did not see any physical contact.

He said: “I didn’t see anything physical and it was all over in about a minute.

“The St George’s guys were upset, but the only shouting I heard was directed at security for allowing the Somerset guys to come through their pavilion. I didn’t hear anything from the Somerset supporters coming through.”

A spokeswoman for the Bermuda Police Service said no incident had been reported.
