Cricket : St. Maarten Draws Game by A Thread Versus Nevis

The St. Maarten Cricket team managed to hold on to draw versus Nevis, by a mere thread, at the ET Willet Park, on Saturday.

This, was as the Leeward Islands Cricket tournament, continued.

Set an unlikely victory target of 262 runs, the visitors found themselves on the back foot versus the Nevisian spin twins of Onaje Amory and Jaden Carmichael.

However, with the overs running out, the two last batsmen at the crease just managed to hold out, until the umpires called play.
