Vincentians and Guyanese locked in battle for semi-final spot

St Vincent and the Grenadines are fighting hard to secure a place in the semi-finals as the West Indies Cricket Board’s Women’s 50-Over League continued on Sunday with the third round of matches. The home team reached 80-4 at the end of the 37th over in reply to 114 made by Guyana at Arnos Vale Playing Field 1.

The mainstain of the home side’s innings was opener Cordel Jack who made 34 before she was adjudged leg-before to hard-working seamer Tremayne Smartt. St Vincent and the Grenadines now need 35 runs off 13 overs to win. The winners of the match will advance to Monday’s semi-final as the second place team in Zone B behind Trinidad and Tobago.

There has been a rain delay in the match between Trinidad and Tobago and Grenada at Victoria Park. The Trinis were on 6-1 off two overs in reply to 71 when a heavy shower drove the players off the field. The match was due to restart at 4 pm but another sharp shower delayed action. The umpires will have another inspection later to determine if there will be any more play.

In Zone A, rain intervened as Dominica were wobbling on 38-6 off 10 overs in reply to 190 made by leader Jamaica at Stubbs. Barbados did not have to worry about the rain as they secured an emphatic eight-wicket win over St Lucia before the lunch period. Barbados captain and fast bowler Shakera Selman was the star player with 5-24 from nine overs, while allrounder Kyshonna Knight took 2-8 from five overs with here medium-pace. After securing the victory the Bajans had a net session under the watchful eye of coach Vasbert Drakes as they prepare for the semis.
