Orlando Peters’ 98 ball 75 helped pilot Antigua and Barbuda to the winning total of 244 all out and secure a 28 run victory against Anguilla.

After being asked to bat by Anguilla who won the toss, Antigua and Barbuda started shakily, immediately losing the wicket of Kofi James in the first over to Kelbert Walters for a duck. However the innings continued briskly until the end of the eleventh over when Damien Lowenfield was run out for 20 runs after a 62 run partnership with Karima Gore. The wickets of Gore (40 runs) and Rahkeem Cornwall (1) followed before a 99 run partnership between Orlando Peters and Shane Burton (28) consolidated the innings. Burton’s 44 ball knock came to an end in the 37th over when he was bowled by Yannick Leonard and was followed immediately after by Peters in the next over. Useful knocks by Kenrick Scott, 25 from 26 balls and an unbeaten 19 by Shavon Moore from 16 balls helped to propel the score to 244 all out in 47 overs.

Bowling for Anguilla, Walters ended with 2 wickets for 32 runs from 7 overs, Leonard had 2 for 47 from 10 overs and Chesney Hughes 2 for 48 from 9 overs.

Anguilla started steadily in its reply before losing their first wicket in the ninth over when Montcin Hodge was stumped by Michael Haynes-Dover for 15 runs off 31 balls. After that, Anguilla lost wickets steadily around the batting of Deon Burton who scored an unbeaten 48 ball 50 before Anguilla was bowled out for 212 in 47 overs.

Antigua began looking shaky; and with just over 3 overs (18 balls) to go and needing 32, the way Anguilla was batting must have caused some jitters, but for a careless run out, the match dwindled to an eventual easy win.

Asharn Hodge contributed 28 runs from 53 balls and Jadell Richardson contributed a 30 ball 21 in support of Burton’s efforts.

Nino Henry took 3 wickets for 53 runs from 9 overs, Gore took 2 for 16 from 7 overs and Kofi James’ 9 overs conceeded 27 runs while taking 2 wickets.

Peters’ efforts earned him the Man-of-the-Match – Little Bay

Montserrat also had a scare at Little Bay, where Jaison Peters’ with an unbeaten 71 helped steer Montserrat to victory over Nevis by 3 wickets in a somewhat close encounter.

Chasing 167 for victory, Montserrat started shakily at 15 runs for the loss of 2 wickets (Joshua Grant and captain Shernyl Burns) by the fifth over, both batsmen bowled by Nelson Boland. Peters joined Shawin Tuitt to feature in a 62 run partnership in 59 balls before Tuitt was stumped by Jason Campbell for a 37 ball 38. Wickets fell steadily thereafter taking the score to 88 for the loss of 6 wickets before a needed 38 run partnership between Peters and Damion Jacobs (20 form 45 balls), staved off another sccare. McPherson Meade then joined Peters, needing 41 runs with 18.3 overs (111 balls) to take Montserrat to victory in the 46th of 50 overs (28 balls to spare).

Boland took 2 overs for 31 runs form his 10 over allotment and was assisted by Jason Campbell’s 2 for 28 from 10 overs and Tonito Willet’s 2 for 22 form 4.2 overs.

Earlier, Nevis reached 166 runs in 44.4 overs with the main contribution coming from Tonito Willet who scored 49 runs off 78 deliveries. Adelvin Phillip scored 30 runs in support of Willet.

The two Damions led the bowling for Montserrat.  Willams took 3 wickets for 35 runs from 7.4 overs while Jacobs took 3 wickets for 31 runs; while Quinton Boatswain took 2 wickets for 23 runs from 7 overs.

Peters’ heroic knock earned him the Man-of-the-Match award.
