Girls to showcase skills at all-star games

The Bermuda Cricket Board is partnering with Axis Capital to put on the first Axis All-Star Girls Cricket matches tomorrow at the North Field, National Sports Centre.

Axis, who backed the Axis Girls Cricket League this year, will be sponsoring tomorrow's two all-star matches for primary and middle schools starting at 12.30pm.

On Monday, the BCB recognised the outstanding individual performances in the girls league this season and also presented a junior cricket set to West Pembroke Primary for their victory in the Bermuda School Sport Federation Super 8s tournament.

“It is very exciting that Axis Capital has partnered with the BCB to help develop our girls cricket programme,” Neil Speight, Bermuda Cricket Board chief executive, said.

“We have many avid young girls in our academy and youth programmes who will now have a stronger opportunity to shine and progress in our great sport.”

MVP winners were: Sarai Packwood and Sophia Card (Northlands); Myeisha Sharrieff, Jahni Simmons and I'Aura Golding (Elliot); Nevada-Ray Shakir Caines (Victor Scott); Shye Blair-Paynter (East End); Nacira Ratteray, Malaya Whitter and Sydney Santos (Prospect); Tele Simons, K'Xiyae Gibbons and Airez Gilbert-Simmons (West Pembroke); Katherine Bean-Rosario and Ayesha Payne (West End); Asia-Leigh Hollis (Warwick Academy); Zakhari Turner and Trinae Edwards (TN Tatem); Stefanie Francis, Shanya Simmons and Se-lah Bean (Whitney Institute).
