ST JOHN'S, ANTIGUA - A first ball strike of the timber by Charles YELLOW MAN Hendrickson served to get the Nevis Masters’ team buzzing, as they faced off against arch rivals St.Kitts in the proverbial ‘battle of the narrows,’ in the grand finals of  2013 edition of the Leeward islands Masters’ Cricket tournament.

To make it even better, the wicket was the coveted wicket of the renowned Luther SHOTGUN Kelly.

The action was held at the Conaree Cricket grounds in St.Kitts on Sunday 19th May.

Nevis won the toss and Nevis’ captain and former West Indies all rounder, Carl Tuckett, immediately decided to send in the opposition. He reasoned that his team had chased well during the tournament and backed them to do it again on the big day. Opposing skipper Junie Mitchum indicated that had he won the toss, he would have batted anyway.

Hendrickson was to find the lumber yard two more times before his spell was completed. He bowled Colin Saddler as he completely missed an attempted pull and then got the prized scalp of the top batsman of the tournament, Junie Mitchum. As he dragged on an attempted cut shot.

Charles Hendrickson 3 for 14 from 4 overs; Merlin Liburd 2 for 4 from 1 over; Gerard Charles 1 for 16; frank Monzac 1 for 24
