St. Vincent 96 for 5 (Martin 21*) beat United States Virgin Islands 92 (Martin 3-6, Nixon McLean 3-14) by five wickets
Earlier, Martin and Nixon McLean, the former West Indies fast bowler, combined to dismiss Virgin Islands for a disappointing 92, sharing six wickets between them. McLean struck early, dismissing Terrance Webbe in the second ball of the match. Most of the batsmen succumbed while attempting big hits, and Martin exploited this by varying his pace regularly. Former Leeward Islands batsman Clifford Walwyn was the top scorer for the Virgin Islands, scoring 40 off 33 balls. Virgin Islands sensed an opportunity for a win with St. Vincent at 69 for 5, but Kissinger McLean and Martin guided the team through to the target with a 27-run stand.
Barbados 141 for 6 (Nurse 35, Haynes 38) beat Anguilla 103 for 7 (Hughes 20, Collins 3-13) by 38 runs
Barbados got off to a good start in their first match in the Stanford 20/20 tournament, with a 38-run win over Anguilla. The Barbados attack, loaded with four internationals, never allowed the opposition to get near the required run-rate, wrapping up Anguilla for 103. Pedro Collins got the early breakthroughs and finished with three wickets for 13 runs off four overs. Barbados batted first and finished with 141 for 6, with contributions from Martin Nurse (35) and Jason Haynes (38).
