ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The British Virgin Islands Cricket Association (BVICA) got its Corporate Tape Ball Cricket League underway at the Softball Field in Road Town on Thursday October 4, 2015 with big wins for Delta Petroleum and Nagico/Terminex.

In Game 1, the Delta Petroleum team announced itself as one of the tournament favourites with a resounding victory over the Harneys team.

Christianand Dhanpaul scored the first 50 of the tournament and retired, however, the batting depth of the Delta team continued with Mikhail Mohamed 33, Lennon Debreo 12 and Andrew Vasconcellos 9 taking the Delta team to a huge total of 132 in 10 overs.

The Harneys' bowling revealed the talented left arm medium pace of Mungo Lowe who was the sole wicket taker for Harneys with figures of 2-0-28-1.

The reply by Harneys started confidently with Fergal McLoughlin blasting the first ball over the square leg boundary for 6. The fight back ebbed away, however, as Delta showed their talent was not restricted to their male players as Loleta Sandy took 2 quick wickets.

The remaining wickets were shared between Bashir Hidar, Jagnarine Persaud and Debreo and Harneys were bowled out for 42 - which will be a respectable score against any other opposition.

Easier matches will come for Harneys but all other teams will be weary of Delta's depth of batting and bowling.

Nagico/Terminex defeat Conyers

In Game 2, the merged Nagico Insurances/Terminex team took on Conyers. The Conyers batting lineup sustained an early loss - Adam Hinks powered an adventurous lofted drive off Simon Cross's fourth delivery towards long off which seemed certain to be a 6 only to be nabbed by Jon Barnard right up against the boundary.

It was left to Murray Laing and Illette Weeks to steady the ship for Conyers, however, the team only managed 37.

David Foot and Vance Lewis then made a patient start to their innings for Nagico/Terminex but started opening up once they got a read of the pitch and made the total with 2 overs to spare.

According to the organisers, “It was an enjoyable start to the BVICA Corporate Cricket League with plenty of female players involved and some exciting matches coming up this Thursday evening Oct 8, 2015 when Maples take on RTW in Game 1 and KPMG take on the merged team of Antarcticaam/BCQS.”
