Stanford 20/20 - 7th match

Anguilla v Barbados

Barbados won by 38 runs

The second match of the evening and Match 7 will see David taking on Goliath as the small territory of Anguilla, only 35 sq miles in size and a population of 13,000 take on the might of Barbados, which is nearly five times bigger (166 sq miles) and has a population of 278,000. Barbados can nearly list the who’s who of West Indies Cricket with names like Sir Garfield Sobers, The Three W’s (Worrell, Weeks, and Walcott), Malcolm Marshall, Joel Garner and a host of others. Anguilla has the services of some up coming youngsters who have the talent to swing it for the minnows.

This game is scheduled to start at 19:00 local (30 minutes)

The news from the middle is that Barbados has won the toss and are going to bat first.
