Tremors Shake New Stadium!

The Desiderata Tremors bowled and batted their way to the Championship of Dominica’s 20/20 Cricket League in the finals held last night at the new Windsor Park Stadium. Spurred on by the first ever half-century in the new stadium from Kirsten Casimir, along with some brilliant wicket-keeping, the Tremours earned their title by a score of 124 to 111 runs over the defending champions, Grand Bazaar Dublanc United.

A few highlights: the Tremors’ Vivian Titre took 2 wickets for 14 runs, while Mervin Mathew got 1 wicket for 17 runs. Dublanc’s Shane Shillingford had 31 runs, but the rest of the team could not deliver.

Here are some “Firsts” in the new Stadium:

  • Kirsten Casimir – First player to hit a 6 & First half century
  • Tyrone Toussaint – First player to hit a 4 & First to get double digits
  • Ray Casimir – First wicket taker

Hundreds of Dominicans turned out to celebrate the re-birth of cricket events in their brand new stadium.

  1. thats really good that you are promoting the local cricket too!

  2. Tremors are the best team on the island and should be made the national squad if it weren’t for constant bickering at the selector level.
