Dax outruns Mali’s entire team – but Seychelles sneak win

St Helena 170 runs – Mali 52
Seychelles 138 – St Helena 135

Dax Richards scored more runs than the entire Mali national cricket team in the third match for St Helena in their tournament in South Africa. His score of 57 helped the island eleven to beat the west African nation by 118 runs.

The afternoon clash with the Seychelles went against St Helena – but only after both sides drew at 128 runs each.

The station reports on Facebook that the match continued into a “super over”, with Seychelles scoring 10 to win the match, against seven runs from the Saints.

The result left St Helena two up, two down after the first four matches in the International Cricket Council’s division 3 tournament in Benoni.  They beat Cameroon convincingly but then lost to the Zambians.

The islanders finished this morning’s game against Mali on 170 for seven wickets – meaning Dax made a third of the side’s runs. Mali was bowled out for 52. Best Bowling – St. Helena: A. Yon 4 for 12.
