United Survivors prevail in Jack’s absence

United Survivors prevail in Jack’s absence


Despite playing without their most accomplished player Cordel Jack, who is serving a two-match suspension for an incident in the West Indies Women’s Cricket Tournament in Grenada last year, United Survivors made a winning start in their defence of the 2014 RBTT local 40-over competition.{{more}}

But the intended 40-over affair was reduced to a 25-over contest, because of seepage on the pitch at the Stubbs Playing Field.

United Survivors won the toss and inserted Garifuna Stars.

Thanks to the obdurate Nyasha Williams who struck a painstaking 29, United Survivors rallied to 119 for 8 from their 25 overs. The top scorer, though, was sidelined West Indies player Juliana Nero, who posted a chancy, airy-fairy 33.

Shevorne Clarke, 2 for 24 and Kimone Homer, 2 for 34, who both opened the bowling attack for United Survivors were the main wicket takers.

Samantha Lynch then struck 45 to push United Survivors to 120 for 4 in 24.1 overs, to win by six wickets.

With only five teams in the competition this year, organisers have opted to play two rounds of matches.

The other teams contesting are JG Tigress, Rising Stars and newcomers Northern Girls Combined. (RT)
