KINGSTOWN – Former Windward Islands batsman Donwell Hector saved his best innings for last, as he helped Salt Pond Breakers beat La Soufriere Hikers by 19 runs and lift the inaugural T10 Vincy Premier League title here Sunday.
Until Sunday’s final, the 31-year-old Hector had managed just 28 runs from seven innings, with a highest score of 10. In Saturday’s semi-final, he suffered the ignominy of being run out before he had faced a single ball.
However, the experienced right-hander put his woes behind him to top score with a crucial 28 off 17 balls as Breakers, sent in at Arnos Vale Stadium, rallied to 100 for six off their allotted 10 overs.
Breakers lost Test batsman and leading scorer Sunil Ambris cheaply for 15 and were struggling at 30 for three, but Hector put on 35 for the fourth wicket with Urnel Thomas (13) to revive the innings. (CMC)
