The five day tour saw the Windies side pull off three consecutive wins to start the tour, which took away demotion worries. The final two fixtures unfortunately saw West Indies lose two humdingers as the Irish and the Aussies pulled off final over chases, with just one and two wickets apiece spared.

Amongst the bats, Michael Allflatt added to his repertoire with his second century and first fifty in just six games finishing as the most successful Windies bat. Young gun Zahir ad-din Tughtikin also impressed with seven wickets, putting a fine display of potentially leading this attack in the seasons to come.

Up next would be a Division 3 Twenty-20 Tour, which after a disappointing failure to qualify for the T20 World Cup this season, implies that the Windies will be heading in desperate into the new cycle.

In a commanding display, West Indies triumphed over Sri Lanka by 9 wickets. Winning the toss, West Indies opted to bowl, a decision that paid off handsomely. Sri Lanka's innings was fraught with difficulties, culminating in a total of 129 runs in 18.5 overs. I. Andrahennadee was the top scorer for Sri Lanka, contributing 34 runs off 27 balls, while A. Kelly managed 27 runs off 26 balls. M. Kudavidanage added a brisk 23 off 17 balls. However, consistent breakthroughs from the West Indies bowlers kept Sri Lanka from building any substantial partnerships.

Andy Hampson was exceptional, taking 4 wickets for 27 runs in his 3.5 overs. Lloyd Verwayen was also effective, claiming 3 wickets for just 14 runs in his 3 overs. J. Wight and L. Phillips chipped in with a wicket each, ensuring that Sri Lanka could not stabilize their innings at any point.

In response, West Indies made light work of the chase, reaching the target in just 12 overs. G. John provided a rapid start, scoring 47 runs off 26 balls before being run out. N. Allflatt and G. Maris continued the assault, remaining unbeaten with 41 and 42 runs respectively. Allflatt's 41 came off 25 balls, while Maris blasted his way to 42 off just 21 balls. Their aggressive batting ensured that West Indies maintained a high run rate throughout, ultimately finishing at 130 for 1.

Sri Lanka's bowlers were ineffective against the onslaught, with U. Etienne conceding 47 runs in his 4 overs and S. Cummings giving away 39 runs in his 4 overs. A. Ranasinghe and W. Gnonto also struggled, each going for 22 runs in their 2 overs. None of the bowlers could make significant inroads into the West Indies batting lineup.

Overall, West Indies' comprehensive performance, marked by sharp bowling and powerful batting, led to a thoroughly deserved victory. Andy Hampson was rightfully named Man of the Match for his impactful bowling, supported by notable contributions from Lloyd Verwayen and George Maris. This victory highlighted West Indies' dominance and set a high bar for their subsequent matches.

Day 2 of Nat Twenty20 3

our team showcased exceptional resilience and skill in securing a hard-fought victory over Zimbabwe by 10 runs. Winning the toss, Zimbabwe elected to bowl, putting early pressure on us. Despite the initial setbacks with M. Francis and captain V. Richards falling cheaply to K. Vyress, our batsmen displayed remarkable tenacity. Lakka Teepee played a crucial innings, scoring 59 off 47 balls, providing the stability needed at the top. His efforts were well complemented by T. Hoad's 27 off 23 balls and a vital 43 off 27 balls from Ronald Roberts, which significantly accelerated our scoring rate in the middle overs. W. Lewis's unbeaten 17 off 10 balls and P. Biley's 12 off 9 balls further bolstered our total to a competitive 162 for 5.

Our bowlers then rose to the occasion, defending the target with commendable grit. Zimbabwe's innings began strongly, but our bowlers maintained their composure and executed their plans effectively. Zahir ad-Din Tughtikin was outstanding, taking 3 crucial wickets for 32 runs, demonstrating his match-winning capabilities. P. Biley also delivered under pressure, claiming 2 wickets for 19 runs, while the rest of our bowlers chipped in to restrict Zimbabwe's scoring.

The match witnessed a few tense moments, especially with Zimbabwe's C. Coen and M. Perrin batting aggressively. However, our fielders and bowlers held their nerve, securing crucial wickets at pivotal junctures. The disciplined bowling and sharp fielding eventually led to Zimbabwe being bowled out for 152 in 19.3 overs, ensuring our victory.

This win, following our previous triumph against Sri Lanka, reflects the strong form and determination of our team. Our collective efforts have significantly boosted our net run rate and reinforced our standing in the tournament. The team's performance against Zimbabwe highlighted not only our skill but also our ability to perform under pressure, a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved. We look forward to continuing this momentum and achieving further success as the tournament progresses.

Day 3 of Nat Twenty20 3

Today's match against Bermuda was a challenging encounter that tested our mettle. We won the toss and elected to bowl first, aiming to capitalize on our strong bowling lineup. Dinanath Challenger led our attack brilliantly, taking three crucial wickets and keeping the opposition under pressure. He was well-supported by Zahir ad-Din Tughtikin, who claimed two wickets. However, Bermuda's batting, particularly A. Boy's 50 off 33 balls and J. Finlayson's aggressive 36 not out off 19 balls, propelled them to a formidable total of 183 for 6 in their 20 overs.

Chasing 184, our innings started with promise but soon encountered setbacks. G. John provided a solid start with 33 off 21 balls, but quick wickets followed, disrupting our momentum. Despite the early losses, Ronald Roberts played a magnificent innings, remaining unbeaten with 70 off 45 balls, displaying superb skill and determination. Unfortunately, he lacked sufficient support from the rest of the batting order, with key players like G. Maris and L. Teepee falling cheaply.

The Bermuda bowlers, particularly G. Williams with his three wickets, consistently applied pressure and restricted our scoring opportunities. Although we fought valiantly and kept the run rate within reach, we fell short by 16 runs, finishing at 167 for 8 in our 20 overs.

Today's result was disappointing, but it highlighted areas for improvement. We need to strengthen our batting partnerships and maintain composure under pressure. The contributions from Ronald Roberts and our bowlers, especially Challenger and Tughtikin, were commendable and will be crucial as we move forward in the tournament. We remain committed to learning from this match and bouncing back stronger in our upcoming games.
