Nero stands out


St. Vincent and the Grenadines and West Indies female cricketer Juliana Nero stood tall among other female cricketers, at the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Cricket Association Presentation and Awards Ceremony, last Saturday evening at the Methodist Church Hall in Kingstown.{{more}}

Nero has recently returned from a tour of Bangladesh with the regional side, at the ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifiers, where she recorded her first international One Day century.

Her recognition last Saturday night was not for her exploits with the West Indies, but performance in the 2011 local women’s Cricket season.

Nero scored the most runs, 126, and recorded the Best Batting Average, that of 63.00 per innings.

This all-round effort saw her securing the Best All Rounder award, as she captured eight wickets for 41 runs and an average of five runs per wicket.

Despite her outstanding efforts, her team Garifuna Stars had to settle for second place, behind perennial winners, United Survivors.

Nero crowned off the night, as she was named among the Five Cricketers of the Year.

Nero’s teammate, Terisha Lavia, had the Best Bowling Average of 2.00 runs per wicket.

The other major award among the women was taken by St. Vincent and the Grenadines Captain and out of favour West Indies player Cordell Jack, who snared the most wickets.

Jack, who led United Survivors to another title, raked in ten wickets.(RT)
