On Saturday at the Arnos Vale Playing Field, New York Vincy Masters opposed RSVG Police in their opening fixture.

Police batted first and posted 133 for 8 from their 20 overs. Gosnel Cupid made a top score of 46; Renford Jack struck 26 and Allan John contributed 22.

Selwyn Caine, Ezekiel Williams and Treldon Mc Millan all had two wickets apiece.

It was high drama as New York Masters responded with 117 for 7 at the 17th over mark, as bad light stopped play. Bert Andrews and Orlando Mofford both struck 22.

Bowling for RSVG Police, Parnell Browne and Renford Jack both picked up two wickets each.

Police were awarded the match, as they had lost fewer wickets at the 17th over mark.

Police were at that point 117 for 6.

But on Sunday, the visiting team made amends when they saw off London Masters Combined by 47 runs at the London Playing Field in Sandy Bay.

Former St Vincent and the Grenadines, Windwards and Combined Islands left-handed middle order batsman Albert Tesheira lashed 85, as New York Vincy Masters reached 157 for 4 from their 20 overs.

London Masters Combined replied with 110 all out, off 16.3 overs. Christopher Campbell hit 36 and Leon Samuel 25.

Ephraim Bacchus was the pick of the New York Vincy Masters bowlers, as he snared a hat trick and finished with 3 for 0.

The New York Vincy Masters next oppose Kingstown Combined at Arnos Vale One on Wednesday from 1:30 p.m. and the Neil Williams Academy on Friday, also at the Arnos Vale venue, from 1:30 p.m. (RT)
