Cleveland forfeit match after row
The Bermuda Cricket Board has launched an investigation into an incident which resulted with Cleveland County forfeiting their First Division Twenty20 match against Western Stars at White Hill Field yesterday.
According to spectators, a heated row among Cleveland fans escalated when one of their players was alleged to have been threatened while attempting to restore calm.
Kristian Singh, the Cleveland captain, forfeited the match before matters escalated any further.
Cal Blankendal, the BCB executive director, confirmed that the incident is now under investigation. “The matter is being investigated as we await the umpires report,” he said.
“Once received, the matter will be reviewed by the executive council for possible forwarding to the BCB Disciplinary Committee. We await the umpires report.”
Stars restricted Cleveland to 113 for seven with opener Q'shai Darrell top scoring with 24 from 35 deliveries.
Former Cleveland pair Makai Young and Curtis Jackson, the player-coach, claimed two wickets each. Stars were coasting in reply at 72 for two after 12 overs when proceedings were brought to a halt.
