Vincy Premier T10 League Highlights: Desron Maloney’s 19-ball 41* was the highlight of the day as cricket returned — at least in some form — from the Covid-19-induced wilderness on Friday with the Vincy Premier League. The first match on Friday — the first-ever match in the Vincy Premier League — was won by Salt Pond Breakers by three wickets. In the second match, La Soufriere Hikers skipper Desron Maloney powered his team with a nine-wicket win with 4.2 overs to spare. In the final match, Dark View Explorers eased past their opposition to win by eight wickets.
The Vincy Premier League is a T10 tournament that will roll on for 10 days in the tiny and picturesque East Caribbean island of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This league, if one discounts the Vanuatu Premier League, is the only instance of competitive cricket since the pandemic outbreak. The big draws in this league are capped West Indies players like exuberant opening batsman Sunil Ambris, pacer Kesrick Williams, up-and-coming left-arm seamer Obey McCoy, and highly-raved batsman Gidron Pope.
