The heat is turning up in the Division 2 T20. It looked like UCCI/WB had it dusted and bagged up but then again it only looked like that.
Having scored 113 and then reducing JJ’S to 65 for 7, UCCI/WB must have felt at that point very comfortable. But it was JJ’S heroic batsmen Nigel Strough and Franklin Hinds who combined well in an unbeaten 8 wicket partnership of 49 runs producing an outstanding victory by 3 wickets with 8 balls to spare.
Aims Consultants continued their march towards a semi-final spot in Division 2 T20 with a 6 wickets victory over Schools.
Batting first Schools were limited to 74 for 7 wickets with Paul Laidlaw 21 and Joeniel Bent 13 the main contributors. Aims Consultants easily controlled their victory losing only 4 wickets.
Greenies Too showed their superior team strength in Division 2 by brushing aside Chillies in a Sunday fixture. Greenies Too had a surprisingly small score of 113 but their bowling was as usual very difficult to handle and Chillies were bowled out for 89. Greenies Too won by 24 runs.
It is the first of two big cricket weekends as the Challenge Trophy reaches the semi-final stage. Cayman Islands, Jamaica, World Stars and India will battle it out for the big spots in the closely contested tournament.
