The Sandals St Mary Cricket Association Big Bash T20 Competition, in honour of Maurice Clarke, bowls into high gear today, with the top eight teams engaging in what is expected to be gripping quarter-final action.

Over at Boscobel Oval, the competition, which has Costly Construction, Parkway Pharmacy, Braham service stations and Wisynco as associate sponsors, will see the home team, Boscobel, up against the dangerous Three Hills in the opening encounter at 9:30 am.

Boscobel will start favourites with their battery of Senior Cup players led by national representative Alwyn Williams, Tyrone Daley, Herman Edwards, Robert Weir, Maurice Harrow and Orland Lyons.

However, in the hard-hitting Milton Mills, Eugente Hudson and junior Carr in their line -up, Three Hills could very well upset their more-fancied opponents.

In the feature match at Boscobel Oval, long-time rivals Jack's River and Day's Mountain will come face to face in a big heavyweight show. Jack's River have the firepower in captain Anchard Hamilton, Kamar Silvera, Dwayne Hamilton, Darrion Walker, schoolboy star Zendai Williams, and Kemar Williams. Day's Mountain will be depending on the Bryce brothers Damion and Andre, Richardo Thompson, Keddar Brown and skipper Samuel McIntosh.

At Three Hills Oval, Oxford will try to test the powerful and favoured Port Maria team. Oxford will be led by Rolando Staple, Christopher Williams and Christon Treston. Port Maria have won all their matches to date and are heavy favourites to go all the way. They have former West Indies Under-19 star Andre Creary, Tezwayne Creary, Richard Creary, Tussain Hassan and Wayne Forrester in their line-up.

The second game at Three Hill wlll be a tough affair, as Gayle is brimming with championship credentials thanks to all-rounder Allando Robinson, Richard Chisholm and Mikail Downer, three players who can change the complexion of any game. Their opponents Highgate will be a tough nut to crack, what with the talented Renar Ross, Jordan Allen, Johnyine Steadford and Gihon Murdock in their line-up.
