New England are 39 for 2, slow going after 10 overs. Wet outfield and a couple of maidens, one by Jermaine Lawson and the other by Sid Mehta applying the brakes on New England. Mehta was particularly effective with his 3 overs yielding 2 for 13 getting slugger Sharaz Baksh (17) and Bonner (12).
Timmy Thomas and Fazal Alam are doing their bit to accelerate the run-machine. The 13th over by Deryck McDonald turning out good for New England. Timmy just sent a six into the orbit, the ball sailing into Watsessing #1 over long on. Fazal then followed with the same shot. Both landing near the pitch of the adjacent field - a good 110 yards away. Now 72 after 13 overs.
