Persaud was presented with three trophies for being the tournament’s most valuable player, the batsman with the most runs and for scoring the most runs in one innings while his team mate Dick was adjudged the tournament’s best bowler, Paul Thomas the best fielder and Barlow the man of the match in the final.
