St Lucia 106 for 3 (Mathurin 28*) beat British Virgin Islands 105 for 9 (Pipe 39, Prospere 2-13) by 7 wickets
St. Lucia had an easy outing against British Virgin Islands, winning by seven wickets in the Stanford 20/20 tournament. St. Lucia put in a tight performance in the field, effecting three run-outs and restricting the opposition to a disappointing 105 for 9 in the allotted 20 overs. Darren Sammy, Garey Mathurin and Alleyne Prospere bowled economically and shared five wickets between them as the batsmen struggled to force the pace. Maxford Pipe was the only batsman who looked comfortable in the middle, top-scoring with 39 but lacked support from the other end. Mathurin played his part with the bat, scoring an unbeaten 28 to guide St. Lucia to the target with over five overs to spare.
