ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI -As the FLOW Superfast LTE 20/20 Cricket Tournament continued at Greenlands on Sunday March 5, 2017 Grenada kept their playoff hopes alive with a victory over the Royal Knights in the Premier Division, whilst the VG Spartans took care of business against the BVICA Youth team.

Grenada, having lost both their previous matches, had no choice but to win the game and having won the toss decided to ask the Royal Knights to bat first.

The move paid dividends as, from the relative calm of 39 without loss, the Knights had their line up ripped apart by a combination of Bryan Daley (2-21), Irwin Lewis (3-13) and Kitason Francis (2-38) to be 59 for 6.

Anthony Slowly staged a mini revival for his team with a patient knock of 52, but the final total of 159 was well below testing for Grenada who had their mojo well and truly back.

And once Trent Belfon, batting up the order in the absence of Derol Redhead and Raymond Charles, had belted his way to 48, the result was in little doubt.

Jamal Innis completed the run chase with an undefeated 30 and Julian Sinclair picked up 4 for 29.

VG Spartans breeze past BVICA Youth Team

In the Division One encounter, VG Spartans made light work of the BVICA Youth team, who were missing a couple of key players, in posting a formidable 282 for 5, thanks to half centuries from Terry Nanton (54), Shane Sinclair (88) and Stanley (62).

The pick of the bowlers for the Youth team was Kadesh Talla with 3 for 33.

Nathan Francis smashed two sixes from the first over on his way to a merry 16, but the only other batsman to reach double figures was Trent Olive, pushed up to open in the absence of Marcus Butler.

Akeem Hendrikson picked up 3 for 29 and Kevin Silchand 3 for 31.

Next Sunday, March 12, 2017 Vikings face Island Stars at 10.00 AM in Division One, whilst the Premier Division game at 2:00 PM sees RTW take on Royal Knights.
