However, due to good transfer politics and emergence of own youth team (Academy), WI started to reduce the backlog and catch up with rivals by 10 tour. Then, Freblick team started their winning series from 17 matches (it continued in 2014) and easily won the tournament with advantage of 13 points. Eugene Smagin got the award as Best Player again.

International Challenge

In 2014, VCL started a new tournament- International Challenge for 5 best teams of SLK. They played 8 matches against each other. West Indies started confidently, but sensationally lost KNK in first match and needed only wins in last tours against Saphir, Academy and KNK. Match against KNK was especially hard and ended in superover. Due to fielding mistake from KNK's wicketkeeper and leader Igor Moshkov, Freblickan team won that trophy.
