Set 128 to stay in the competition, the defending champions meekly succumbed for 80 in 18 overs.

Travis Peters snared 4 for 10, creaming off the top of Novice’s batting, as Smashers won by 47 runs.

Also on Sunday, Owia Young Strikers overpowered RSVG Police by six wickets.

Police, who were inserted, could only make 38, shackled by the bowling of Zimroy Roberts – 4 for 3; Randel Munroe – 3 for 5 and Denson Lavia – 2 for 1.

Owia Young Strikers then rushed to 39 for 4 in 7.2 overs.

Osrick James threatened with 4 for 11, but the RSVG Police could not detain the Young Strikers’ batting with any force.(RT)
