Lord’s (St David’s won toss): St David’s beat Willow Cuts by 204 runs

St David’s captain Derrick Brangman hammered an unbeaten century and claimed five wickets as St David’s bounced back from their first defeat of the season to beat Willow Cuts on Sunday.

A day after St David’s lost their unbeaten record against Somerset, Brangman thumped 118 from 130 balls with thirteen fours and a six as St David’s posted 293 for five after electing to bat.

The Bermuda and Somerset Cup Match all-rounder came to the crease upon the dismissal of Dean Stephens and added 67 with sibling Ricardo Brangman Jr for the fifth wicket and a further 179 in an unbroken sixth-wicket stand with fellow middle- order batter Makai Young to virtually bat Cuts out of the match.

“It was a good day with the bat,” Brangman told The Royal Gazette.

“I went to the wicket and we were 57 for four with eight overs gone, so it was a little challenging and the wicket was moving a little bit.

“I just put my head down and fought it out for the boys to get a good score.”

Young finished unbeaten on 77, with opening batter Okera Bascome (36), Ricardo Brangman Jr (21) and OJ Pitcher (17) the others in double figures.

First change Jayden Spencer was Cuts’ most effective bowler with two for 49.

Brangman took the new ball for St David’s and was virtually unplayable on the way to an outstanding haul of five for 28 from ten overs, which included one maiden.

“Guys said I might as well keep going, today is your day,” Brangman said.

“So I took the ball and did what I had to do. Picked up a couple of quick wickets and went from there. It was an excellent day with the bat and ball.”

Cuts fell well short of their target in reply as they were dismissed for a paltry 89 in 26.3 overs, with Shaquille Bean (31), fellow opener Ras Solomon Burrows (17) and middle-order batter Antonio Darrell (22) the only players to get starts.

Cuts were against the ropes at 61 for five and never recovered as their remaining wickets fell for the addition of 28 runs in ten overs.

First change and former captain Justin Pitcher was the remaining St David’s bowler taking multiple wickets with two for 19 from just 3.3 overs while there were two run outs.

After suffering their first loss of the season 24 hours earlier, Brangman was pleased to lead by example as his side returned to winning ways

“We just bounced back from Saturday’s game,” he said.

“Unfortunately the Bermuda Cricket Board made us play on Saturday and we had guys working, but that's the way it goes and we had to fill a team and push forward.

“I am just happy to get the boys back to winning ways and looking forward to next weekend against Bailey’s Bay and St George's. Two big games for us on Saturday and Sunday.”
