ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Vikings have landed right in the LIME Superfast T20 League Premier Division relegation battle after suffering a 6 wicket defeat to Grenada on Sunday March 27, 2016.

The defeat to the unbeaten Grenada team means the Vikings now have just 3 points, the same as Cavaliers and the Vincy, who clash next Sunday, but the Vikings have the worst net run rate currently of the three teams.

The bottom of the table team will go down to Division One.

Grenada won the toss and having asked Vikings to bat, made steady inroads into their opponents’ batting line up until Johnny Bailey (48) put up some stern resistance.

Aided by Ronan Hushman (26) and Ashworth Richmond (20), the score was boosted to 178.

Trent Belfon picked up 3 for 27, Irwin Lewis 2 for 18 and Bryan Daley 2 for 29.

In reply, Denron Frederick and David Johnson put on 89 for the first wicket, with both taking advantage of some sloppy fielding by the Vikings.

Frederick finally fell for 46, which included 5 sixes and Johnson for 40 with 4 sixes, but then Rodney Marryshow batted sensibly for an unbeaten 33 and he found the ideal partner in Daley, who rounded out his Man of the Match performance with 30 not out, as the target was reached in the 16th over.

Grenada cemented top spot in the standings and whilst there are still a round of games to go, they look likely to face Royal Knights in the play offs, in which the top two teams face off.

The winner of that game would reach the final, whilst the loser gets a second chance to join them, as they would play the winner of the third and fourth placed teams.

Wolues chase down 223!

In Division One the Wolues gave themselves a chance of reaching their division play offs, winning their last game of the regular season against Virgin Gorda C.C. by 4 wickets.

Having asked VG to bat, it looked like a long day in the office for the Wolues, as 30 runs came off the first two overs, mainly from the swashbuckling Denis Alister who survived a loud appeal for caught behind early in his innings.

He went on to smash 95, including 8 fours and 9 sixes, but the Wolues hauled themselves back into the contest, restricting the final score to 223-8, with Michael Castillo making the only other significant contribution of 26.

Reuben J. A. Stoby picked up 3 for 37 and Charlie E. Jackson 2 for 14.

Man of the Match, Daniel Singh (74, with 10 fours and 3 sixes) and Jerome Perrera (50, with 6 fours and 3 sixes), then led the Wolues charge for victory, putting on 93 for the third wicket, before both fell in quick succession.

Stoby and Anil Kumar then saw the Wolues home, with an over to spare.

Jeffrey Demming was the pick of the VG bowlers with 2 for 28.
