Undermanned Castries outguns Babonneau In Master League Cricket

05c349a2-55a5-4647-bf0a-b9275e31e7faPRESS RELEASE – Central Castries continued their defense of the Twenty20 Masters Cricket League competition, with an eight-wicket win over Babonneau at the Monchy Playing Field on Sunday.

Central Castries, playing with just eight players, won the toss and asked Babonneau to take first knock, in a match reduced to 12 overs per side. Babonneau limped to 107/7, bating out their overs but losing wickets at regular intervals. J. John top scored with 33, M. Jacobie added 25. Bowling for Central Castries, Joseph St. Marthe took 2-16, Keith Charlery 2-26, whilst Carol Henry and Sheldon Thorpe took one apiece.

When Central Castries replied, they batted steadily without dominating the Babonneau attack. When the last over began, Central Castries needed 10 runs for victory, but could only muster two runs off the first four deliveries. The fifth ball went for two, leaving them requiring a six off the final delivery.

Greg Wilson obliged in dramatic fashion, carting A. Antoine for a huge six over over mid wicket to bring victory to the City Lads. Batting for Central Castries, Julian Charles top scored with 29 not out, Sheldon Thorpe 26, Greg Wilson 24 not out and Carol Henry 22. Bowling for Babonneau Robertson Philgence and John Estaphane too a wicket each.
