Windwards women go three from three in regional Super-50


The combined Windwards team, made up of players from Dominica, St Lucia, Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines, counted three wins from as many matches yesterday, Monday, at the Sion Hill Playing Field, eeking out a two-wicket win over Jamaica, in a low-scoring encounter.

Jamaica, batting first, scrambled to 84 all out in 35.2 overs, as captain Afy Fletcher snatched 7 for 13 from 9.2 overs.

Fletcher then hit a joint top score of 23, along with Swayline Williams, as the Windwards battled to 85 for 9 in 36.2 overs.

Chedean Nation, with 3 for 19 and Vanessa Watts, 2 for 25, threatened to stop the Windwards’ victory march.

On Saturday, the Windwards registered a 75-run win over the Leewards at Park Hill.

Quiana Joseph snared 4 for 35 and Fletcher grabbed 3 for 23, as the Leewards were dismissed for 104 in 36.2 overs. Amanda Edwards topped the batting with 21.

They were responding to the Windwards’ 179 all out, made in 41.1 overs.

Cordel Jack, 37 and Fletcher, 29, were the corner stones of the Windwards’ total.

Shawnisha Hector captured 3 for 29, Rozel Liburd, 3 for 39 and Amanda Edwards, 2 for 24.

The Windwards made a winning start by dumping Guyana by five wickets at the Arnos Vale Playing Field.

Jack, after missing out on selection last year, hit nine fours in her top score of 41, as the Windwards successfully chased 132 for victory.

A former West Indies women’s player, Jack shared 62 for third wicket with her captain Fletcher, to achieve victory with 95 balls remaining.

Earlier, Akeira Peters had grabbed 3 for 23, to lead the bowling for Windwards, as they restricted the Guyanese to 131 for 9 from their 50 overs.

June Ogle hit the top score of 37.

The Windwards play Barbados on Wednesday at Arnos Vale, as they seek to remain unblemished and secure a place in Sunday’s final.
