Willow Cuts v Warwick Workmens

Dexter Basden banged 103 as Cuts thrashed Warwick by 164 runs in this lopsided First Division affair at Southampton Oval.

Former Devonshire and Somerset bowler Joshua Butler took three for 84 to lead the Warwick attack.

In pursuit of the visitor's massive total Warwick fell well short with Kion Butterfield top scoring with 62.

Promising young all rounder Duentay Darrell again came up trumps with the ball, claiming three for 31 off ten overs to spearhead the Cuts attack.

Bailey's Bay v Devonshire Rec.

Christino Smith hit 69 and Bermuda skipper Irving Romaine seized five for 16 as Bailey's Bay edged First Division rivals Devonshire by nine runs in a nail-biter at Devonshire Recreation Club grounds on Saturday.

Smith smashed 12 fours and Jim West chipped in with 30 off 42 balls to help the visitors post a respectable total.

Lamont Brangman was the pick of the Devonshire bowling with impressive figures of three for 30 while seamers Dennis Williams, skipper Dean Stephens and Jodi Maronie who was later hit in the head by a beamer all claimed two wickets apiece.

In reply, Devonshire seemed well on track at one stage but eventually came undone and fell agonisingly shy of the mark.

Skipper Stephens cracked 46 off 51 balls, veteran campaigner Allen Richardson added a valuable 43 off 71 balls while Lovintz Tota hit a stubborn 21.

Romaine, by far the best Bay bowler, had outstanding figures of five for 16 off ten overs, including five maidens.

Leg Trappers v Police

Skipper Garvin Apricio hit a half century (66) and Anderson Cumberbatch grabbed five for 27 to spur Police to a three-wicket win over Leg Trappers in this First Division encounter at Sea Breeze Oval.

Stephen Drake led the Trappers bats with 57 while World Cup all rounder Saleem Mukuddem took two for 26 off ten overs with two maidens.

The remaining First Division match between Somerset Bridge and PHC scheduled for White Hill Field was postponed due to another event being staged on the same day at the West End venue.
