Barbados Advocate article.

Bridgetown, Barbados - ATC recorded a massive 97 run victory over FedEx when the Grantley Adams International Airport T20 Night Cricket Competition continued on Tuesday night at the Rices Ground.

ATC batted first and racked up a massive 196-5 in its 20 overs, while FedEx was bowled out for 99.

At one point, the massive total looked a bit of reach for ATC as they were struggling at one stage on 54-3. Andre Roach was the first batsman back in the pavilion when he was trapped leg before by Kishmar Holligan while Rommel Chase followed suit in the very next over when he was run out for six to leave the score on 21-2. Adio Catwell combined with Rommel Hall to push on the scoring but he fell for 12 and the score was now 54-3.

However a fourth wicket partnership of 141 between JaiBari Yarde and Hall set ATC on course for the tournament’s highest total. Yarde stroked 83 off 36 balls inclusive of five boundaries and seven sixes, while Hall made 31 off 37 balls. Both batsmen would fall to Bryan Carrington in the final over of the innings, but by that time the damage was already done as ATC ended on 196-5 in 20 overs.

FedEx in reply were bundled out for 99 in just 16 overs with Holligan topscoring with 26, while Wayne Squires and Christopher Holder both made 21 each. Hall took 4-17 and Yarde 2-11 for ATC.

In the other match played on Tuesday, CAH Ramp defeated Four Roads by 44 runs. CAH Ramp made 135-9 in 20 overs while Four Roads made 91-8 in reply.
