BOURNEMOUTH’S Dom Clutterbuck emerged the leading wicket-taker in the inaugural World University T20 in Trinidad & Tobago.

Playing for Oxford MCCU, the Lions left-arm spinner finished with 11 wickets and an economy rate of 6.2.

His team reached the final, where they were beaten by a powerful Combined Colleges and Campuses side, which included players from the Caribbean Premier League.

Clutterbuck found himself up against university sides from India, Pakistan, the United States and the West Indies.

He said: “The tournament was designed to engage young aspiring international cricketers, first-class players and students of the game, providing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them to compete among their peers on a global platform.

“I thought the T20 Tournament was a great success. I was pleased with my 11 wickets and Oxford also had the highest run-scorer.

“Every game was streamed live, with commentators and was very professionally organised by Daren Ganga, the former West Indies Test batsman.”

Clutterbuck will again travel back from Oxford to play for promoted Bournemouth in the Southern Premier League this season.
