Middlesex join in on BCL semis

Middlesex became the last of the lot to make it to the semi-finals of the Brooklyn Cricket League’s 35-over competition.

Their two attempts last weekend put them in the last four, where they will meet another Vincentian outfit – Imperial.{{more}}

The first play-off on Saturday was rained out. At that point Middlesex was 119 for 4 against Cavaliers, another Vincentian team.

But when the clouds cleared on Sunday, Middlesex again batted first and made 159 for 9 in the allotted 35 overs.

Mark Audain struck 36; Tyson Crawford 19 and Treldon McMillan 16 were the only scorers who reached double figures.

Bowling for Cavaliers, leg-spinner Ephraim Bacchus took 2 for 20 and off spinner Ezekiel Williams 2 for 24.

Cavalier’s reply offered many anxious moments, which included a 36 from Cameron Cuffy and Andrew Marsh’s 27; but they fell for 150 all out, nine runs short of the target.

Bowling for Middlesex, medium pacer Leon Hyde had 2 for 23, Mark Audain – 2 for 24 and leg spinner Jawanza Young – 2 for 26.

The other semi-final match-up this Saturday features Queensbury, also of Vincentian origin, taking on St Lucia.

The winners of both semis meet on Sunday, also at Marine Park.(RT)
