Vital victory for YMPC

Social Share

YMPC clinched a vital victory by five runs under the Duckworth/Lewis method over Barbados Defence Sports Programme (BDFSP) to record the only win in zone B of the Sagicor T20 competition on a rain- affected day yesterday.
Chasing a meagre 89 from their allotted 20 overs, the host reached 48 for one from 11.2 overs when a very heavy shower around 3:23 p.m. ended play for the day.  The game was called off at 4:20 p.m.
Nekoli Parris was unbeaten on 20 and Steve Blackett ten. The pair came together with the total on 19 in the three over, when West Indies ‘A’ Twenty/20 captain Dwayne Smith fell for 14.
Smith returned from St Lucia earlier in the day, after making a splendid undefeated 71 for West Indies against Bangladesh ‘A’. West Indies ‘A’ won by 55 runs to level the two-match series.
Earlier, BDFSP were restricted to 88 for nine after they elected to bat. Fast bowler Christopher Jordan, who plays for Surrey in the English County championship, started the mayhem byremoving Renaldo Brathwaite for 12.  Renaldo Griffith with 18 was the only other batsman in double figures. There were two wickets each for Ryan Wiggins (2-10), Smith (2- 13), Kayode Pantophlet (2- 15) and Jed Yearwood (2- 23) as BDFSP gave a spineless display of batting. (EDH).
