Malteenoes reap success on Barbados tour

Marcus Watkins impressed with both bat and ball

On Sunday, they played Passage Road and posted 232-3 in their 20 overs, led by Hinds’s belligerent knock of 76 (9x4s; 5x4s) from 35 balls.

Skipper Shaquille Williams supported with an unbeaten 50 from 25 balls, while Anthony Lim slammed 30 off 13. Watkins was in the runs again, finishing the innings with 36 off 25 balls.

In response, the hosts started solidly before losing their first wicket for 34 runs in the third over, but only Zaria Trotman with 42 (9x4s) off 22 balls and Fletcher (41  off 21 balls) provided any resistance for the Passage Road side.

Watkins ran through the lineup, grabbing four wickets for 24 runs with his mixture of spin and deceptive slower balls.

Williams and LaRose took two wickets to ensure the Guyanese unit remained unbeaten by sealing a 78-run lead.

The tour continues on Tuesday with a clash against Spartans.
