The Chivas Cricket Sportsman Award (CCSA)Week 4 Announced

Hamilton, Bermuda, Friday, June 20 - Today the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) and Chivas Regal, the leader in quality blended scotch, are delighted to announce the winner of the weekly Chivas Cricket Sportsman Award (CCSA). The winner of the award for week 4 is Sinclair Gibbons of St. Georges Cricket Club.

 

Somerset bowler, Jacobi Robinson injured himself during his first over while attempting to field a ball struck by Sinclair Gibbons. After receiving treatment, Mr. Robinson bowled another 4 overs before he was forced to retire from the field due to the pain. Mr. Gibbons, as the batsman at the crease deputizing for the St. Georges captain, allowed a substitute player to replace Mr. Robinson despite the fact that the Somerset team had not named any reserve players in their nominated team. With Mr. Robinson’s retirement, Somerset would have been forced to continue the match with only 10 men. By allowing the substitute player to take the field, Mr. Gibbons exhibited a superior standard of fair play and showed the true Spirit of Cricket.

 

The Chivas motto is ‘Live with Chivalry,’ and cricket is renowned for being a gentleman’s sport.

 

Only the best for the best, Chivas 18 is a uniquely rich and multi-layered blend that includes over twenty of Scotland's rarest single malt Scotch whiskies.
