Santokie hat-trick books semi-final slot for Jamaica

ESPNcricinfo staff

A hat-trick by Krishmar Santokie helped Jamaica roll over Netherlands at the Kensington Oval and book their place in the semi-finals of the Caribbean T20. Santokie took 4 for 13 to dismiss Netherlands for a paltry 116, before Jamaica coasted home by eight wickets.

The Netherlands scorecard was dotted with single-digit scores, with only Stephan Myburgh (31) and Eric Szwarczynski (44) showing resistance. Nikita Miller, the left-arm spinner, made early inroads with three wickets before Santokie took over. He removed Szwarcynski with the final ball of his third over and bowled Mudassar Bukhari and Timm van der Gugten with the first two balls of his fourth. Netherlands lost their last six wickets for only six runs.

Nkrumah Bonner top scored with 35 for Jamaica and put his team on course for victory, sharing an opening stand of 49 with Danza Hyatt. Marlon Samuels and Shawn Findlay knocked off the remaining runs with ease to seal the win with more than two overs to spare.

It was another one-sided affair at the same venue as Combined Campuses and Colleges (CCC) slumped to 76 all out against Barbados, who had already booked their spot in the semi-finals. Floyd Reifer and Yannick Ottley were the only two players to pass double figures for CCC. The wickets were shared among all the Barbados bowlers, with Suliemann Benn finishing with figures of 1 for 9 from four miserly overs. Kirk Edwards and Kevin Stoute hit unbeaten 30s to knock off the required runs in ten overs.

    The Windwards and Jamaica match can also go either way .,however,if I had to pick a winner,I would pick the Windwards.The Jamaican batting is poor,but they experience bowlers might save them in the long run with Samuels being the only player likely to control the batting .Intelligent bowling can control players like Russell.Jamaica needs some agressive openers...without them,they would not make a decent score.Captaincy and tactics are the key,and a score of 150 plus,would ensure a win for any of the 4 teams.

    Well done Bdos ! Now you have to get rid of TnT...won't be that easy though,but I have every confidence in my team.Carlos Brathwaithe's injury might be seen to be a big blow, might also turn out to be a blessing in disguise.Hope the Bajan selectors replace him with Carter and not Searles as some people have been suggesting. People like Dujon and Mohammed keep on saying that the Bdos lineup is yet to be tested,and seem to be implying that it is likely to crumble if Smith goes early...totally agree,however,it is ALSO likely that having not been tested as they say,the batting can also messrs Dujon and Mohammed,don't just look at one side of the pendulum...Last night Stoute and Edwards scored at 8 runs an over.TnT has the strongest batting lineup in the competition.,and Bdos the strongest bowling attack..had D.Ganga been the capt. of that team,I would have given TnT a slight edge,since they have more experience in this form of competition.Right now it is' even stevens'!
