Caribbean Premier League, St Lucia Zouks v Antigua Hawksbills at Gros Islet, Aug 6, 2013
Antigua Hawksbills won by 33 runs
6 August 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Best to Thomas, 1 run, short of length ball on off stump, 142.8kph, hit towards sweeper cover for a single


Best to Thomas, 2 runs, drops it short, looks to pull that away but the timing is awful, the ball goes towards midwicket


Best to Thomas, no run, full ball on the stumps, 145kph, Thomas pretends to back away before the bowler delivers and then stands his ground, thumps the ball towards mid-off


Best to Thomas, FOUR, short ball angling into the body, batsman does superbly to get on top of that as he pulls it away to the midwicket boundary, not an easy shot to play against this sort of pace, the stocky Sebsatien has a horrible time fielding that, he had no real chance of getting across in time to cut that off, and he didn't put the brakes on early enough and tumbles into the advertising hoardings

Antigua Hawksbills 108/3   DC Thomas 7* (4b 1x4)

Sammy to Thomas, OUT, Marlon Samuels falls to an unlucky dismissal, a full-blooded drive from Thomas, Sammy does well to get a hand on it, deflected onto the stumps, Samuels was backing up, just out of his crease, he's on his way, and the Hawksbills losing steam here

MN Samuels run out 12 (13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 92.30


Sammy to Thomas, 2 runs, short of length ball is eased towards deep backward point, Kemp was slow to turn for the second, but manages to lumber through for the second


Sammy to Thomas, 1 run, length ball, a mistimed hit towards long-on for a single

Antigua Hawksbills 116/4   DC Thomas 10* (7b 1x4)

Mathurin to Thomas, no run, length ball is punched back towards the bowler


Mathurin to Thomas, no run, length ball outside off, flat and quick from Mathurin, slaps it towards backward point


Mathurin to Thomas, SIX, moves across the stumps even before the bowler released, a touch of flight and a brutal hit from Thomas sends that over the bowler's head for six, powerfully struck


Mathurin to Thomas, FOUR, a touch short and just outside off, looking to launch that through the off side, a thick edge sends the ball between keeper and short third man for four


Mathurin to Thomas, 1 run, bowled from wide of the crease, Thomas skips down and thumps this towards long-on

Antigua Hawksbills 127/4   DC Thomas 21* (12b 2x4 1x6)

Best to Thomas, 1 run, starts the over with a 143.3kph yorker, dug out towards point for a single, good start from El Tino


Best to Thomas, FOUR, pitched up and angling in, Thomas makes use of the angle of the delivery as he slugs it towards cow corner for four more


Best to Thomas, no run, Tino thinks that a caught-behind chance, but more likely came off the pad, Fletcher puts it down, it was a back of length ball slanting down leg that the ball wanted to work away towards square leg

Antigua Hawksbills 139/4   DC Thomas 26* (15b 3x4 1x6)

Shillingford to Thomas, 2 leg byes, skips down the track and Shillingford fires it into the leg, on the pads and down towards fine leg


Shillingford to Thomas, SIX, great hit from Thomas, who is looking in terrific touch, this was pitched up, he gets on one knee and launches that one over wide long-on for a big six


Shillingford to Thomas, OUT, goes for another big hit, gets a thick outside edge as the ball spins away from him, great use of the variation there, the ball loops high towards short third man, Devon Smith pouches his third catch of the match

DC Thomas c Smith b Shillingford 32 (18b 3x4 2x6) SR: 177.77

Antigua Hawksbills 148/5   DC Thomas 32 (18b 3x4 2x6)
