Federation Teams into Semis of Leewards Masters Tournament

The ongoing Leewards Islands Masters Cricket tournament, continue to create much excitement in Antigua.
After two days of intense competition, it has come down to the four top teams and the semifinals will be played at the two grounds of choice in Liberta and All Saints, starting at 9 am today.
Nevis will engage St. Thomas
St. Kitts will take on Antigua and Barbuda
Some of the outstanding features of the tournament so far, include the following:
Nevis has officially recorded the largest contingent to ever attend the tournament in its 22 year history.
The contingent comprises of some 43 individuals, which includes players and supporters.
You can well imagine the headache that the selectors experienced in selecting the eleven for the first match on Friday.
Subsequent selections would become easier due to the usual injuries and failures etc.
Also of note, is that in the case of Antigua and Barbuda and St. Kitts especially, they have opted for a much younger crop of Masters’ cricketers this year and are certainly making a stronger bid for championship honours.
In the case of St. Kitts, they are fielding players of the caliber of Junie Mitchum; Jason Saddler; Greg Stanley, among others and in the case of the host country, Wilden Cornwall, Sylvester Joseph, Greg Skepple and Anthony Lake, are some of the more recent national players who are making their impact in the tournament.
