SPORTING ALERT – Match Day 2 of the 2016 NAGICO Super50 gets going on Saturday with four games across Trinidad and Tobago and St Kitts.
Viewers, according to WindiesCricket, will be able to watch three of the four matches live via the website’s streaming service, while the fourth match can be seen live on the ESPN 2 network.
The action gets going at 9:00 am ET, with Jamaica Scorpions taking on the ICC Americas at Sir Frank Worrell Memorial Ground in St. Augustine in Group A.
Both teams suffered defeats in their respective NAGICO Super50 tournament opener.
“They, like us, lost their opening match, but I had a look at the scorecard and noticed Barbados Pride lost six wickets to get the runs in 47 overs,” Scorpions captain John Campbell said in the Jamaica-Gleaner.
“It appears, therefore, that the (Americas) have a decent bowling attack, and as such, it should be a hard-fought game.”
He added that the 84 run defeat to Trinidad and Tobago at the Queen’s Park Oval in the opener was disappointing, but the team has already put that loss behind them and it only looking forward.
“Everybody appears to have put the defeat behind us and are ready,” Campbell told The Gleaner yesterday.
“We had a good training session this morning, and all the guys were in high spirits and looking for us posting our first win.”
Also at the same time, the Windwards Volcanoes and the Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners will square off at St Paul’s Sports Complex, at Basseterre, while defending champion Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and Barbados Pride meet in what should be an entertaining early tournament matchup in Group A.
Live ‘ball by ball’ radio commentary is also available throughout the Caribbean, with this year’s NAGICO Super50 tournament running from January 7 – 23.
