The group called FICO which made a generous donation of US $2,000.00 to the Nevis Sports Department on Friday 23rd January, was thoroughly entertained by the members of the Nevis under 13 Cricket squad, that same day.
The group which spent over a week at the prestigious Four Seasons Resort, made the donation towards the development of the youths of Nevis, with specific emphasis on the further development of the game of Cricket.
Immediately after the presentation ceremony, the youngsters were divided into two teams and engaged in an eight overs contest which proved to be very competitive.
Some of the players included young Barrett; Simon, Sharma, Patrice Nisbett, James Swanston and Carlon Tuckett.
Team one managed a total of 63 runs from their allotted 8 overs.
Team two in response needed four runs from the final delivery with Carlon Tuckett on strike.
He pulled the ball to midwicket where it was brilliantly fielded and the batsmen were restricted to a mere single. Team two getting to 60 from their eight overs.
Team one celebrated and the guests were happy with the result.
