Kumar scores 5 against Guyana and 24 versus T&T.

Leeward Islands playing Jamaica needing a win and some help to advance to the semi-finals. There seems to be a 5th place match so Nitish may get in another innings regardless of the outcome. Have to wonder whether a good showing down the stretch earns him another contract next Super 50 or this was a one-off.

Edit: Kumar scores a 51 against Jamaica

Kumar finishes his tournament for Leeward Islands with a 29 in the 5th place match against a Barbados squad not fielding the disappointing Mr Kirton. Overall Nitish can be pleased with his Super-50. He showed he was not out of place playing with and against West Indies pros - top scorer in the round-robin portion, albeit on a poor Hurricanes squad. Time will tell whether this performance opens the door to further contracts (perhaps CPL).

It looks like there are no Canadians in this year’s CPL.

I’m just reading up on Joshua da Silva who has played tests and ODIs for the West Indies. He’s 22yrs old. According to Wikipedia, his mother and maternal grandfather are Portugese CANADIAN! He could be playing for Canada! Maybe later in his career?
