The locals struggled to really get going at all in their innings, being bundled out for 96 in 36 overs with Pablo Ferguson top scoring with 26. Cayman’s bowlers Corey Cato, Neil Coley, and Kevon Bazil each took 2 wickets.

Cayman went in to bat prior to the lunch break and came out swinging, with 25 off the first 3 overs. Argentina looked to be back in the game when they stumped Paul Chin first ball after lunch to have the Caymanians 5/53, before Deno McInnis with 28 runs and Conroy Wright’s 24 from 22 guided the tourists home. Daniel Sutton was the pick of the Argentine bowlers with 2/11 as Cayman cruised home in the 21st over.

Post-match awards were presented to Argentine Matias Paterlini for Day 1 Man of the Match (4/24 and scored 28). Day 2’s Man of the Match was Cayman’s Conroy Wright who took 4/12 and then backed up with 1/8 with 24 runs to also take the game 3 award. Wright was also Bowler of the series and player of the series, while Deno McInnis from Cayman took the batsman of the series award.
