Grenada 84 for 4 (Fletcher 47*) beat Dominica 83 (Thomas 22, Pascal 2-15) by six wickets
Grenada have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Stanford 20/20 tournament after their comprehensive six-wicket win against Dominica. Andre Fletcher, the Grenada opener, scored an unbeaten 47 as his side reached the target of 84 with ease. Earlier, Dominica failed to bat out their allotted 20 overs and were bowled out for a paltry 83, largely due to an impressive performance in the field by Grenada. Dominica got off to a disastrous start, losing three wickets before the fifth over, and their reckless running between the wickets didn't help matters, with three run-outs in the innings. Fletcher got his team off to a good start, and held the innings together after his side lost four wickets relatively quickly.
Nevis 104 for 3 (Woodley 56*) beat St. Kitts 100 (Taylor 41, Maynard 4-9) by seven wickets
Nevis recorded a thumping win over St. Kitts by seven wickets with nine overs to spare in their Stanford 20/20 match under lights. Chasing 101, opener Sherwin Woodley led the charge with an unbeaten 56, and his second-wicket stand of 67 with Kieran Powell (26) sealed the deal. Earlier, St. Kitts never recovered after paceman John Maynard ran through the top order with four wickets for only nine runs off his four overs. Opening bowlers Tonito Willet and Maynard left the opposition in tatters at 29 for 6, and the only resistance came from Jacques Taylor (41) and Colin Cannonier (16) taking the score to 90.
The more established teams will play in the upcoming round of matches in order to secure the remaining quarter final spots. Barbados face Anguilla on July 18 while in a much anticipated double header on July 21, Guyana will take on Montserrat while Jamaica will play Bermuda. A depleted Trinidad and Tobago squad will play a confident Cayman Islands unit on July 25.
