Cricket : Highlights Edge Empire in Thrilling Super Over Contest

It was a rare happening and certainly one of the most exciting games so far, in the ongoing T-10 tournament, being hosted by the Nevis Cricket Association and sponsored by the St.Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla National Bank.

Empire faced off with Highlights, at the VOJN grounds, on Sunday, March 28th.

Empire won the toss and batted first and scored a formidable 95 for 4 in their allotted 10 overs.  Believe it or not, Highlights scored 95 for 3 when their 10 overs ran out!  That led to the super over.

Highlights batted first and only managed 11, with T’jarie Clarke exciting the crowd, with some innovations.  Batting second, Empire could only manage 7, from the one over bowled by Tariq Newman

Summarized scores:

Empire 95 for 4 from 10 overs: Adelvin Phillip 36; Nelson Boland 17
Mikyle Louis 2 for 23; Adrian Williams 1 for 10; Tariq Newman 1 for 16

Highlights 95 for 3 from 10 overs: Theron Bussue 54*; Patrice Nisbett 20
