POSTED: 10/3/11 8:24 PM

Antigua and Barbuda recorded the largest win so far in the 2011 NAGICO/Leeward Islands One Day Cricket Tournament with a 223 run win over the British Virgin Islands (BVI) on Sunday. The match was played at the Conaree Cricket Grounds in St. Kitts. Winning the toss and opting to bat first, the defending champs piled on 309 runs for 7 in its 50 overs with a handsome performance from Mali Richards with 84 runs from 96 balls and Raheem Cornwall 78 from 2 balls. Orlando Peters and Justin Athanaze rounded out the batting for Antigua with 45 and 41 runs respectively.

The BVI bowling seemed effective during the early part of the match but faltered midway in the Antiguan inning. Earl Prescott picked up 2 wickets for 46 runs for the BVI, Richard Fredricks 2 for 46, Neil Niles 1 for 35 and Dorian Auguiste 1 for 44.

In reply, the BVI could only muster 86 runs all out in 22 overs.  Montgomery Butler registered 43 runs. Bowling for Antigua & Barbuda Gavin Tonge nabbed 5 for 2 and Larry Joseph 3 for 34. Antigua & Barbuda’s next game will be October 5th vs Nevis at the Elquemedo Willet Park in Nevis.
