The Queens cricket all-stars defeated a team comprised of players from Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan to win the 2014 NYC Cricket Mayor’s Cup.


High School for Construction senior Keifer Phill lived in the shadow of the PSAL’s top batsman, Derick Narine of John Adams, during the 2014 cricket season. But Phill finally got his moment in the sun.

Phill, who recently competed with the USA national under-19 team, scored 28 runs including 4 fours to lead the Queens all-star team to victory in the Cricket Mayor’s Cup on Saturday, June 21 with a score of 94-91 against a team comprised of the best players from Brooklyn, the Bronx and Manhattan. Although they already knew it, Queens can now officially call itself the best borough for cricket.

Surprisingly, Narine, who lead the PSAL in runs (858) during the season and led John Adams to win the PSAL city championship, didn’t score a run in the game and went down quietly after being caught behind. This left Phill, who was third (302) in scoring during the season, to pick up the slack.

Phill won MVP honors for his batting and bowling performance, which included four catches and two wickets for 24 runs.
After Phill retired, Mohammed Hossin of Newcomers High School scored 23 runs and Nick Harripersaud of Hillcrest High School scored 14 runs for the win.
