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.
