Rain ensures charity clash ends early

The fourth annual AON Brokers v Underwriters charity match over the weekend ended in a rained-out draw at the National Sports Centre.

Underwriters, batting first, scored 94 all out after 24.4 overs, with William Gillett top scoring with 21. Anup Seth took two wickets to lead the Brokers.

The Brokers’ innings was rained out after nine overs, with them on 25 for three at the time of rain.

Usually the winning charity receives slightly more funds from the charity pool. However, due to the draw game, the charity funds raised will be split evenly between the two charities — Tomorrow’s Voices for Brokers and Age Concern for Underwrites. AON Bermuda usually donate $2,250 ($1,500 winner/$750 to the runner up). Chubb Bermuda contributed an additional $1,000 and there was a donation box at the game that raised a total of $855 from the individual players. The total funds raised is $4,105

The rivalry has now heated up with a non-result with the Brokers still up 2-1 in overall wins.
