Unfortunately, Dominica’s top order batsman and Vice-Captain of the Windward Islands Volcanoes, Alick Athanaze, was not among the runs.
At the post match interview, Athanaze expressed, “I think it’s about seizing the key moments. If we are doing well we must continue to do well. If some of us are not doing well the rest of us should carry that person. We just have to stick to the basics and things will come out good for us.”
Notably, at the end of five games both Kavem Hodge and Alick Athanaze are among the top performers at the 2022 CG United Super 50 Tournament. Athanaze holds the cap of most runs in the tournament with 279 runs while Hodge secures second place with 259 runs.
