Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Sport 2 -

Gib­bons rocked Half Moon Fort with a fine dis­play of off-spin bowl­ing on Tues­day at Low­lands, St Lucy.

Forde took a rare hat­trick while re­turn­ing the ex­cel­lent fig­ures of seven for 19 as Hilda Skeene de­feated St Mark’s by nine wick­ets at King’s Park on Mon­day.

Mean­while, reign­ing cham­pi­ons Bay­ley’s, Wes­ley Hall, Eden Lodge, Mil­ton Lynch, St Matthews and Charles F. Broome have qual­i­fied for the Round of 16.

Bay­ley’s and Charles F Broomes also ad­vanced to the knock­out phase af­ter com­plet­ing vic­to­ries yes­ter­day.
