The Nevis Masters Cricket team continues serious training and practice for the upcoming Leeward Islands Masters tournament, slated for Antigua from June 7th to 9th.

In a simulation match played on Sunday 19th May at Cotton Ground, Ardie Liburd, MVP of the last Leeward Islands tournament, looked especially good for his 85 not out and Gavin BULF Wattley struck 45.
The Masters are set to engage the Nevis under 19 team at the ET Willet Park at 4.30 today-Tuesday 21st May and would be hoping for a win on this occasion.
