Cricket : Youths of Nevis Dance on Calypso

The action in the ongoing T-20 tournament, hosted by the Nevis Cricket Association, shifted to the ET Willet Park, on Sunday 29th November, with a doubleheader.

In-game one, Youths of Nevis engaged the Calypso team.

Youths of Nevis batted first and got to an imposing 179 for 3 in their allotted 20 overs, on the back of stunning half-centuries by Akeem Saunders and Javani Tyson.  In their amazing 145 runs partnership, it literally rained sixes and fours at the ET Willet Park!
