3bd50dd1-5894-4dda-9075-3710ba36cdbdJohn Eugene turns 46 in 2016, which is kind of cool, since he once hit 100 not out from just 46 balls.

At the time, it was the second-fastest century ever scored by a West Indian in Twenty20 cricket, and it was the first century ever scored in the Stanford 20/20.

These days known more for coaching, John turned back the years in the latest round of the Masters Cricket Festival, Sunday at Monchy. Playing for New Park, and coming in one down, the former West Indies A captain blitzed Babonneau for 54, facing just 27 balls, five of which he hit for six. That easily carried NEw Park past the target of 97, Babonneau having compiled 96 in 17.5 overs.


The featured game, Islanders against Castries, saw Islanders ringing up an impressive total of 202/2. Atomic led the way with a quickfire 35, whilst there were solid contributions from Rafeek Ali, Awalie and Mitchell.

As Castries began their reply, Hermangild Francis fell victim to Vincent Mitchell first ball. After eight overs, Castries were 53/4, but Greg Wilson helped rebuild the innings. He scored 77 and teamed up with Big George, coming in at number nine (and adding 46) to overhaul the target of 203 in the 19th over.

Mitchell had a good game scoring 28 off 14 balls and taking 3-25 in his 4 overs, but Islanders managed to steal defeat from the jaws of victory.
