Nurse plunders century in domestic T20 League

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Out-of-favour West Indies Twenty20 off-spinner Ashley Nurse lashed an aggressive hundred to inspire LIME to a 64-run victory over Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme in the opening series of the domestic T20 League here Saturday.

The Barbadian struck an unbeaten 106 from just 51 balls as LIME piled up 181 for two from their 20 overs, after they were asked to bat at Paragon.

Nurse smashed ten fours and five sixes and anchored a 152-run, unbroken third wicket partnership with Randy Thomas who scored a run-a-ball unbeaten 50 not out.

In reply, BDFSP were dismissed for 117 off 19.4 overs, with Nurse taking two for 30.

Nurse was a critical part of Barbados’ successful campaign in the recently concluded Regional Four-Day Championship where he took 32 wickets and scored 298 runs, including his maiden century – an unbeaten 130 against Trinidad and Tobago.

The 25-year-old Nurse played two Twenty20s for West Indies three years ago.
