Cayman Island crush
Bermuda by 64 runs
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina—Cayman Islands de-
feated Bermuda in the battle of the British Over-
seas Territories in this South American capital, as
they stormed to an emphatic 64-run victory over
their rivals in the third match of the ICC World
T20 Americas Sub Regional Qualifier tri-series on
Both teams—each drawn from matching popu-
lations of around 64,000—went into the crunch
fixture with a victory apiece under their belts after
both defeated hosts Argentina in their opening
games, but Bermuda never threatened to chal-
lenge Cayman Islands’ 165 for five and crumbled
to 103 all out in the penultimate over.
All-rounder Troy Taylor, 34, took the honours
for Cayman Islands with three wickets and a top
score of 35.
The tournament is the first step towards qualifi-
cation for the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2020.
The three teams will face each other twice in Ar-
gentina, with the top two advancing to regional
finals next year. (CMC)

Windies down UAE
but questions remain
HARARE, Zimbabwe—An unconvincing West In-
dies needed left-arm spinner Nikita Miller’s five-
wicket haul to beat minnows United Arab Emirates
by 32 runs, as their dodgy start to the ICC World
Cup Qualifiers continued yesterday.
Embarrassingly bundled out for 115 in the 34th
over at the at Harare Sports Club, the Caribbean
side rebounded to rout UAE for 83 off 29 overs, and
claim victory in their last of their official warm-up
matches before their Group A campaign gets un-
derway next Tuesday against the same opponents.
The 35-year-old Miller bagged five for 20 and
seamer Kemar Roach, three for 15, as West Indies
avoided another potential disaster following on
from Tuesday’s shock defeat to Afghanistan.
Sent in, there was no sign of what was to unfold
when the Caribbean side reached 81 for three in
the 18th over.
Veteran Chris Gayle (16) and rookie Evin Lewis
(10) put on 31 for the first wicket before Shimron
Hetmyer, who top-scored with 20, added 34 with
Marlon Samuels (15) for the second wicket.
The left-handed Hetmyer was bowled by off-spin-
ner Rohan Mustafa (2-10) in the 16th over after fac-
ing 28 balls and counting a single four and Samuels
followed 13 deliveries later, caught at the wicket off
leg-spinner Imran Haider who was the best bowler
with four for 16.
West Indies then capitulated, losing their last
seven wickets for just 34 runs as Haider and left-
arm spinner Ahmed Raza (2-14) ran through the
middle and lower order.
Seamer Mohammed Naveed accounted for both
openers to finish with two for 27.
In reply, UAE were tottering early when Roach
claimed the first three wickets to fall to leave the
World Cricket League Division 2 champions on 36
for three in the 10th over.
With a run added, Miller knocked over Chirag
Suri for one and the Jamaican then combined with
off-spinner Ashley Nurse (2-21) to wreck the UAE
Rain halted play with UAE on 58 for seven and
the Windies clinically wiped out the tail once play
Despite the victory, the performance will raise
even more questions for West Indies, especially
about their batting, especially after they were
dismissed for 110 in pursuit of a revised 140 in a
rain-hit encounter against Afghanistan.
West Indies will also face Papua New Guinea,
Ireland and the Netherlands in the preliminaries
as they bid for a spot in the Super Six second
stage of the qualifiers.
The top two teams will qualify for the final
and also secure the remaining spots at next
year’s ICC World Cup in England. (CMC)
