The National Bank sponsored T-10 tournament, being hosted by the Nevis Cricket Association, continued at the ET Willet Park with here matches, on Sunday 14th March.
In match one, Youths of Nevis engaged Pioneers.
Youths of Nevis, batting first, could only manage 57 for 5 from their allotted 10 overs. They, however, to their credit, did not just roll over and play dead. They kept believing that they could restrict the Pioneers batsmen.
However, Duan Webbe and Jamoy Pemberton ensured that the Pioneers team got to the target in just 7.4 overs.
Youths of Nevis 57 for 5 from 10 overs: Anan Bhim 15; Elroy David 12

Meanwhile, in match two of the T-10 tournament, played on Sunday 14th March, Empire engaged SDA Jets.
Jets won the toss and sent the Empire team into bat first.
The early wicket of Adelvin Phillip, brilliantly caught by Curtis Morton Sr, off Melissa Clarke, sent early shock waves into the Empire camp and they struggled during the first six overs. However, Nelson Bolan came to the crease and totally changed the game, with a whirlwind cameo of 68 from just 22 balls, which included 4 fours and 6 sixes.
In response, Curtis Morton started with 13 off the first over and then the second ball up in the second over, tried to go over long-on and was caught. Elroy Kelly and Saneldo Willet played steady hands towards the end, but the Jets were never in the run chase.
Empire 129 for 3 in 10 overs: Nelson Bolan 68*; Jelani Manners 26; Andre Browne 21
Melissa Clarke 1 for 13; Elroy Kelly 1 for 17; Curtis Morton Sr 1 for 23
SDA Jets 58 for 5 in 10 overs: Elroy Kelly 17*; Curtis Morton Sr 13; Saneldo Willet 10
Empire won by 71 runs
Man of the match – Nelson Bolan
