T&T faces Jamaica in WICB Women’s Super50 Semifinal
The national women’s cricket team will get a tough test today when it tackles defending champions Jamaica at Windsor Park in the semifinal of the West Indies Cricket Board Regional Women’s Super50 tournament in Dominica.
T&T, led by captain Anisa Mohammed has had a comfortable tournament so far qualifying for the semifinals as the top team in group A. Mohammed is the replacement captain for Merissa Aguilleira, who is still recovering from an injury.
In the opening round on Thursday T&T defeated Grenada by six wickets.
On Saturday T&T was expected to get some stiff competition from Barbados but unfortunately due to rain the match was abandoned.
The T&T ladies were in action on Sunday spanking home team Dominica by 299 runs.
Right-handed Britney Cooper was the star for T&T scoring 155 before she was forced to retire hurt. Cooper’s heroics guided T&T to a massive 382/7. In reply Dominica was bundled out for 83 handing T&T the win.
Jamaica also put in a clinical batting performance on Sunday to get past St Vincent and the Grenadines by 146 runs. JodyAnn Morgan made an even 100, while West Indies Women’s standout Stafanie Taylor contributed 89. St Vincent was dismissed for 143 in 45 overs.
It has not been all smooth sailing for Jamaica. In round one the Jamaicans lost by three runs to Guyana in a reduced 26-over-a-side match.
In the other semifinal Guyana will play Barbados at Botanical Gardens. Both matches bowl off at 9.30 am.
