Nevis Franchise Tournament underway

Despite, the inclement weather, a fair sized crowd showed up at the ET Willet Park for the commencement of the Nevis Cricket Association Franchise league on the evening of Saturday 10th May.

In the first game, Oualie Pelicans soared over South Warriors with Marvin Hamilton and Stuart Williams getting among the runs and Akito Willet and Elroy David getting among the wickets.

In match two which was set up for an exciting finish before it was unfortunately rained out, Nelson Boland slammed an undefeated half century for the Bath Hotel Blazers and Carlon Smithen seemed set to respond in kind for the Saddle Rangers until he was outfoxed by a Tonito Willet slower ball.
