Arnos Vale, St. Vincent – This weekend, January 25 and 26 will see some big battles in the national cricket championships.
Hot off of an impressive start to the 2020 championship, the Flow duo of teams are at it again this coming weekend, in the two Premier Division matches that are down for decision. Flow Rivals will do battle against Guardian General Saints at the Arnos Vale Playing field and will be hoping to emulate their brothers success against the same opponents of last weekend. Flow Rivals will depend heavily on Hyron Shallow who notched up the season’s first century on the opening weekend, 135 from 119 balls. Shallow was elated to be the first centurion of the new season and “has his sights set on scoring over one thousand runs in the eight matches to be played”. Romel Currency and the young players of the Guardian General Saints, who are smarting after their first match scolding, would do well to hold off the Flow Rivals unit who has their tails up.
Also down for decision this coming weekend in the Premier Division, Flow Radcliffe square off against Police Two. This is expected to be an enthralling battle between the web weavers of Flow Radcliffe and the law enforcers of Police Two, who are always up for any challenge; an encounter that will take place at the Sion Hill playing field.
In the National Lotteries fifty overs, First Division competition on Sunday, the lads from the Island of clouds, Keegan’s Bequia XI will look forward to more sunshine on their campaign, after downing the defending champions last Sunday, when they take on Victors Two at Buccament.
The 2019 champions C.J Jules Anthony MSDA Northern Stars will look to bounce back after their game one loss, when they meet Coreas Distribution Belfongo on their home turf in Cumberland. Dorson Cottle who returned the most impressive figures so for the season, 7 for 18, is “looking to replicate the feat, only this time in hope of it being in a winning cause”.
The First Division fixtures will also feature North Windward Combine against Radcliffe Two at London,
Vee Jay Roof top and Bar North Windward locking horns with Strike Eagles at Stubbs and Police One coming up against French Verandah SVG Community College at Arnos Vale 2.
