Match against Isolation Cavaliers

Commentary Isolation Cavaliers


Friday 30 November

The standard of cricket in Barbados is absolutely awesome. Cricket is the national sport and the facilities are first class.



The wicket at the ground was in A1 condition. Many thanks to a very diligent groundsman.

Craig Paice was Captain for the match. He ton the toss and elected to bowl. The Falkland Islands have now won the toss on each occasion on this tour (a little bit of trivia for you statos). Wendell Coppin, the ICC Cricket Development Officer for Barbados made a guest appearance for the Falklands

David Hewitt opened the bowling with Andy Brownlee supporting from the other end. The bowlers and fielders had a busy day in the field. The Isolation Cavaliers amassed a score of 248-4 off 30 overs.

Wendell took two wickets with Andy Brownlee & David Hewitt getting one apiece.




Toby Poole took a brilliant catch on the boundary and if I had not been sitting in the direct line of the ball and had to dive out of the way I wuld have got a great photo of the dismissal.

The Falkland Islands Team managed to score 50 all out, Craig Paice top scored with 12 runs.
I can honestly say that I have never faced bowling as quick as the opening bowler. Just incredibly quick.

The Isolation Cavaliers were gracious guests and we must thank the ladies for the excellent fishcakes in particular provided over lunch.



After the game the team attended a reception on board the Royal Fleet Auxillary Vessel Argus. Craig Paice gave a wonderful speech, presented the Captain of the vessel with a plaque and tie.
