Playing for the Cavalier Sport Club, a Vincentian team, Martin two weekends ago at Marine Park smashed a brilliant century to set up his team’s victory bid for another shot at the Knock out Championship or more so the League title.

Martin scored 114 of Cavalier’s 267 for 7 off 35 overs.

This along with other scores of 37 by Che Loyie, 27 by Mc Neil Morgan and 25 by Augustine Victory, both former St. Vincent and the Grenadines players, which set the pace to Cavalier cruising home to an easy 192-run victory against Carriacou.

The 2006 Knock out champs Cavalier were still basking in a three-wicket win against archrival Imperial, another team of Vincentian origin.

It took 16 overs for Cavaliers to wrap up the game with Carriacou making 75. The father and son combination of Mark and Dominic Audain swept their opponents taking seven wickets for 32 runs between them.

It’s an all clear for all 12 teams in the competition this year with 2006 league champs Roraima of Guyana out.

Cavalier fortified their position with a win last weekend against Diplomats.

The Vincentian club, which for many years has been part of the cricket scene in Brooklyn, USA, is aiming at this year doing the double of league and knock out champs.

Running concurrent with the Brooklyn League is the Caribbean Cup that features Barbados, the Leewards, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, the Windwards and Pakistan.

Martin, Mark Audain and Morgan are the three Vincentians representing the Windwards in the Caribbean Cup.
