    Mohammed Nabi made significant contributions with bat and ball as St Lucia Zouks beat St Kitts and Nevis Patriots by 10 runs today.

    First, the Afghanistan international made 35 not out off 22 balls to push Zouks to 172/6 batting first.

    Andre Fletcher earlier laid the foundation with 46 from 33 balls.

    Then Nabi took one wicket in an economical spell – his 1/17 helped along with 4/33 by New Zealand’s Scott Kuggeleijn and Roston Chase’s 3/12.

    The victory takes Zouks to 2nd but they have played one game more than the teams surrounding them.
