Franks Wins Chivas Cricket Sportsman Award

July 17, 2015

The Bermuda Cricket Board [BCB] announced that the winner of the weekly Chivas Cricket Sportsman award for week 5 is Kijuan Franks of Flatts Victoria.

“At the beginning of the game between Flatts and Cleveland on July 12th one of the Cleveland players reported an injury subsequent to the team sheet being submitted. In an act of chivalry the Flatts captain, Kijuan Franks, allowed Cleveland to replace the injured player despite the fact that the team sheet had already been provided to the umpires,” the BCB said.

“For this act of sportsmanship and encouragement for Bermuda cricketers to play within the Spirit of the Game, Kijuan Franks, of Flatts Victoria, has been selected as the Chivas Sportsman of the week.”

    Great, the most abused substance on the island sponsors athletes, amazing subliminal messaging.

      But it’s not the fault of Chivas that some people overdo it. Give credit where it’s due to the sponsor, they didn’t have to donate at all.
