Eve the destroyer for Rangers

Champions Southampton Rangers thrashed relegated Flatts Victoria by nine wickets in a lopsided One Premier Division match at Lord's on Saturday.

Vernon Eve, the former Flatts slow left-arm bowler, claimed seven for 20 as the home side were dismissed for a paltry 85 off 22.2 overs after winning the toss and electing to bat.

Malachi Jones took two for 11 to offer Eve fine support in the bowling attack. Ricardo Brangman, the Rangers wicketkeeper, had a catch and two stumpings, including one to dismiss opposite number Coefield Robinson, the Flatts captain.

Opener Dajon Carey, who stroked 14, and Logan Phillips, 34 not out, were the only Flatts batsmen in double figures.

Rangers replied with 86 for one, reaching their target in 14.4 overs with Charles Trott and Ricardo Brangman leading the run chase. Trott struck an unbeaten 38 from 39 balls.

He also shared in a match winning 73-run partnership with Brangman, whose unbeaten 34 from 35 balls included four fours and a six.

The match between returning champions Southampton Rangers and home team Bailey's Bay at Sea Breeze Oval was not played when no umpires showed up.
