GREENLAND, Tortola, VI - Last Sunday, March 11, 2017 the field at Greenland on the eastern end of Tortola was awash with action packed cricket as the FLOW Superfast LTE 20/20 Cricket Tournament began to see teams wilt under the pressure of the looming play offs.

There are just 3 weeks left of regulation matches before the knockout stages are reached, but already the Royal Knights are in a nail biting finale, as they suffered another defeat in what was their final match.

They managed to take a wicket with the first ball of the game against RTW, but from that moment on were on the back foot and ultimately capitulated as RTW amassed 284-2.

Curtis Jack fell for 99 in a partnership of 189 with Austin McDowall, who finished unbeaten on 119 and added a further 95 runs with Joel Williams, who finished unbeaten on 37.

In reply, Royal Knights, whose Premiership future lies outside their control, were soon 90-5 and so far behind the asking rate that even talisman Antony Slowly could do little to alter the course of a disastrous season.

He did at least reach 58 before falling to Williams and Joel LaFleur scorched a brave 50, but now the Knights who were 204-9 at the close of the innings, must hope that the Vincy don’t win another game, in order to stay in the top flight.

The Vincy have to play the Cavaliers and also Grenada, so anyone of the Knights, Vincy or even Grenada can face the dreaded drop to the lower flight.

None of that matters, of course, to those teams in Division One, who are looking for promotion.

Victory for Vikings

The Vikings went to the top of the standings, albeit on Run Rate from Under the Tree, with a comprehensive victory over the Island Stars.

Ken Alphonso helped himself to an unbeaten 115 and both Sam Malpass and Roshan Hushman scored half centuries as the Vikings smashed their way to 278-4.

In reply, the Island Stars got useful contributions from Keelan Robin and Wayne Phillip, who both scored 41, but the left arm spin of Johnny Bailey restricted the chase as he picked up 3 -25 and the Stars ended on 186-8.

      Not this. Which one of these guys go to college, or professional. Simply a recreational league; calm down.

        To TOTAL- You are incorrect.
        BTW- What does going to college have to do with sports?
        FYI- There are lawyers, CEOs, and other professionals playing the sport...for fun and love of the game.
        Why people have to be hating when they see others staying fit and having some fun..common on man. Enjoy life and stop the hating. Be nice and open minded.

        Since when you have to go to college to play a sport?
        What is the national sport? Softball which is an American Sport...
        Cricket is a world wide sports and if you take some time to see the benefits one country can gain from it Keep Calm.

Fact is lawyers, architects accountants college students n graduates playing in this currant league. Why hate on this sport? Last time i checked cricket originated from England. Last time i check the British Virgin islands is a British territory. Accessibility to the U.S and the U.S. dollar has really brain wash the citizens of this land. What if trump deny bvilanders entry to the us? How will you survive? What culture will u adopt? I hope u read this n reply?
