Xavier Cornelius and Kejel Tyson teamed up in an exhilarating partnership, to take the wind out of the sail of the St. Kitts Senior Cricket team.
Tyson who opened the innings, played well throughout but Cornelius on debut, after starting with some degree of uncertainty, blossomed into playing some superlative shots to close out the innings.
A straight hit into the Villa Grounds, was a special gem. The occasion was the Culturama -40 special T-20 match between the two Federation teams. The match was played at the ET Willet Park on Saturday, July 26, 2014.
The St. Kitts team won the toss and elected to bat first and managed a competitive 136 for 6 at the end of the allotted 20 overs. Nevis in response, took just 18.3 overs to overhaul the target.
