That brings a great day of cricket to an end. Important wins to kick things off for Dark View Explorers, La Soufriere Hikers, and the Salt Pond Breakers. It's been a lovely return to the sport for the world at the end of the day. And Prasen Moudgal and I, Habil Ahmed, have enjoyed being your eyes for some exciting cricket. We hope to see you again for our coverage of the Vincy Premier League tomorrow at 6 PM. Before that, of course, we will also be covering the Vanuatu T10 Blast starting at 7:30 AM.
...
That's that. Easy win for Dark View Explorers in the end. Congratulations to the winning team. They've chased the target down without breaking a sweat. Well assisted, of course, by some undisciplined bowling from the Fort Charlotte Strikers.
...
8.3 Gidron Pope to Lindon James, FOUR to finish from captain Lindon James! Quicker delivery on the pads, James threads the leg-side gap to precision and bring about a comfortable win for the Explorers. 
...
8.2 Gidron Pope to Lindon James, short and outside off again, James hits it back to the bowler. 
...
8.1 Gidron Pope to Lindon James, quicker ball outside off, James looks for a swipe over mid-wicket but misses. 
...
8.1 Gidron Pope to Andrew Thomas, extras, extras and more extras. Wide and an extra run on Pope's first ball. Scores are tied.
...
Only 3 more to win in the last two overs. Pretty easy for the Explorers. Unless something catastrophic happens, of course. Fort Charlotte Strikers are socially distancing themselves from victory now.
...
7.6 Ray Jordan to Andrew Thomas, short ball angling away from Thomas, the southpaw looks to drive the ball but an edge goes to the third man fielder. 
...
7.5 Ray Jordan to Andrew Thomas, quick and short, Thomas is happy to defend it towards the point.
...
7.4 Ray Jordan to Lindon James, short and on the hips, James plays it down to fine leg, yet another single added to the total. 
...
7.3 Ray Jordan to Andrew Thomas, quicker ball on the stumps, Thomas was beaten for pace but somehow got some bat on that. 
...
7.2 Ray Jordan to Andrew Thomas, length ball flicked straight to the man at short mid-wicket. 
...
7.1 Ray Jordan to Lindon James, full and sliding down leg, James flicks to fine leg for a single. The Explorers are literally one hit away now.
...
The Explorers need just the 7 runs off the last 3 overs. They are cruising at the moment.

Reminder: Discipline, Strikers. Discipline. 17 runs in extras so far.
...
6.6 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, yet another ball that goes away from the grasp of the keeper. Two more runs to the total.
...
6.5 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, quicker one from Rasheed outside the off stump, James gets an inside edge for a single to third man. 
...
6.4 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, shorter and on the stumps, James flicks it to deep mid-wicket for a couple.
...
6.3 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, FOUR! Full and outside leg yet again, this is too predictable from Rasheed. James bends down and sweeps it fine for a boundary. 12 to win off 21. Starting to look too easy for the Explorers here today.
...
6.2 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, Thomas tucks it down to fine leg for a single.
...
6.1 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, better from Rasheed. Length ball outside off, played to the point fielder.
...
6.1 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, poor bowling from Rasheed. He's giving away too many freebies. Almost gifting what is left of this game to the Dark View Explorers.
...
6.1 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, Rasheed sprays it down the leg side, Williams fails to collect and batsmen collect a single to short third man. 
...
That six early in the over allowed the batsmen to relax a little bit. 20 to win from 24. Looks fairly simple but you can never say never in a game of cricket.
...
5.6 Sealroy Williams to Lindon James, shorter length from Williams, James rocks backs and punches it down the ground for a single. 
...
5.5 Sealroy Williams to Lindon James, full and angling into the stumps, James defends. 
...
5.4 Sealroy Williams to Lindon James, short ball outside off, one that keeps low, James bunts it to covers. 
...
5.3 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, driven down to mid-wicket for a single. 
...
5.2 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, ball trickles away to short third man, no run.
...
5.1 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, SIX! Short and asking to be punished, Thomas swivelled on his hips and thrashed it away to fine leg for a six!
...
Sensible cricket from Thomas and James. Just knocking it around and rotating the strike. No need to do anything silly at the moment. 28 to win from 30.
...
4.6 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, a single down to third man to retain strike for Thomas. 
...
4.6 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, quicker delivery outside leg, Thomas lets it go.
...
4.5 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, change in line from Rasheed who slides it away from James, a single to covers.
...
4.4 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, fuller and at the stumps, James plays it with soft hands onto the leg side and collects a brace. 
...
4.3 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, length ball outside leg again, James turns it away fine for a couple.
...
4.2 Rasheed Frederick to Lindon James, full and outside leg, a deflection off the pad is collected by the keeper. A loud appeal from the bowler but the umpire could not care less.
...
4.1 Rasheed Frederick to Andrew Thomas, quicker ball on middle and leg, Thomas fends it to square leg for a single.
...
Dark View Explorers need to keep their heads here. They seem to be self-destructing. They only need 36 more at a run-a-ball. Rasheed Frederick comes into the attack.
...
3.6 Sealroy Williams to Lindon James, length ball outside off, James dabbed it to cover and set off for a single but was rightfully sent back by Thomas.
...
3.5 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, short ball outside off stump, Thomas gets enough bat to take it all the way to square leg for a single.
...
3.4 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, no run. 
...
3.3 Sealroy Williams to Andrew Thomas, Phew! That was close! Thomas almost chopped onto his stumps!
...
Both openers are now back in the pavilion. Andrew Thomas replaces Deron Greaves.
...
3.2 Sealroy Williams to Deron Greaves, OUT! Bowled! Greaves chops it back on to the stumps. The Fort Charlotte Strikers are back in the game.
...
3.1 Sealroy Williams to Deron Greaves, no run.
...
37 for one in three overs. 20 off that over. Probably the most expensive one we've seen so far today. 39 to win from 42 balls, and skipper Lindon James walks out.
...
2.6 Kirton Lavia to Kensley Joseph, OUT! Lavia strikes! A pacy delivery that climbed onto Joseph, the right-hander could not get enough bat on the pull shot and the edge was pouched safely by the short fine leg fielder.  
...
2.5 Kirton Lavia to Deron Greaves, better from Lavia. Short and closer to the batsman, Greaves punches it down the ground for a single.
