Trini women humble Dominica

Amanda Samaroo missed out on a century.

Trinidad and Tobago mauled Dominica by 170 runs today as the Regional Women’s Twenty20 Cricket Tournament continued in Jamaica.

Playing in the early seventh round match at Kensington Park, Trinidad and Tobago romped to 209 for three in their 20 overs with Amanda Samaroo bludgeoning the Dominica attack in rushing to 98, but falling agonisingly short of a century. She got good support from Britney Cooper who scored 54, while Stacy Ann King chipped in with 30.

Dominica were never in the contest, losing wickets steadily as they meandered to 39 all out in 18.1 overs with the top score of 14 coming from Pearl Etienne. Gaitri Seetahal proved virtually unplayable, snaring four wickets for seven runs.
