Wasim Mintos was once again the ultimate star as the Empire Cricket club defeated the hitherto undefeated Pennyless All Stars in a much anticipated match up in the Keith Arthurton Windsor Nagico t-20 tournament, being played in St. Kitts.
The match was played on Sunday 18th September at the Conaree grounds.
Pennyless All-stars batted first and struggled to 115 for 6 from their 20 overs.
Young Saeed Williams batted superbly for his top score of 44; Ross Powell scored 25 and Akito Willet 25.
For the Empire Cricket club, Trevier Smithen was the main bowler with his 3 for 20; Wasim Mintos got 2 for 19; and Nelson Boland 1 for 10.
The Empire team had a shaky start in their response to the total, losing some early wickets, with Kejel Tyson 2; Adelvin Phillip a duck and Theron Bussue another duck, they seemed in dire straits. However, Wasim Mintos took control in his usual aggressive style and he slammed 77 not out, ably assisted by Justin Athanaze, who was 21 not out at the end.
Empire won by 7 wickets.
Quinton Boatswain got 2 for 36 from 3 overs and young Kian Pemberton got 1 for 14 from his 4.
