Pacer Geevan Shultzs was the pick of the bowlers for BEI, with 3-15 off six overs. Randy Ramnauth also had a 3-wicket haul to finish with 3-16.BEI in response required a match-winning ninth-wicket partnership of 20 to get them across the line in the 27th over.Andrew Southwell and Isiah Anderson came together with the team precariously placed at 68-8, and batted sensibly, with Southwell ending unbeaten on 24.Haywood (2-21) and Steffon Peters (2-19) were the best bowlers in a losing effort.BEI now join an elite group of Zone winners and will be eagerly awaiting the resumption of the League, which is scheduled for early January 2017.last_img
