They lost last editions’ summit clash to Combined Campuses and Colleges but come their tournamnet opener this time around and Leeward Islands were quick to avenge that difficult with a trouncing of their opponents. In what was a comprehensive and clinical display by the side, they ended up thumping CCC by a mammoth 198 runs to begin their season in resounding fashion.
Batting first to score 292 runs, Leeward Islands returned with an equally riveting display with the ball as well to send their opponents packing for a meagre 94 runs and stamp their authority all over the tournamnet. In what was a pleasing to the eye display, the side lay down their marker for challenging for the coveted trophy once again, a display they’ll be looking to emulate come today’s clash against Canada.
However, the side will be well versed with the staunch identity of this Canada side, one which comes lined up with some stellar international names who have seen the country be on an uprise in the cricketing frontier.
