A disappointing innings from the US Virgin Islands and one that they might have to look back at the two silly run outs that may have cost them a good chance in this match. They have 92 on the board and will have to keep it very tight against what appears to be a very determined St Vincent outfit. They bowled well and if the batting department backs up the bowlers then they should not have too many problems, but then this is cricket and anything can still happen. The crowd has started to grow as well maybe in expectation of the Barbados Anguilla match scheduled to start at 19:00 this evening. The main stand is about half full while the grass banks are starting to fill up.
