Barbados defeat Jamaica in Grenada
ST. GEORGE’S — Barbados edged a low-scoring match against recently crowned Regional Women’s Super50 champions Jamaica to bowl off their Regional Twenty20 tournament campaign with a five-run victory at Progressive Park in Grenada yesterday.
After winning the toss and electing to bat first, opener, Kycia Knight was the lone highlight for the Bajans as they were reduced to 70 for 9 in their 20 overs.
The Barbadians constantly lost wickets and were setback in their bid to get a competitive total. Knight was the only batter to get into double figures, scoring a patient 31 runs from 58 balls. And even she had to work hard, running all of her runs.
The highest other score of the innings was jointly shared by her sister, Kyshonna Knight and Pamela Lavine, who both made eight. Chedean Nation grabbed 3 for 17 from her four overs as the Bajans’ innings floundered.
But the Jamaican batters would not do much better. They fell to 24 for 3 early on and failed to recover. Chinelle Henry top scored for the Regional Super50 champions with 21. She struck one four. Chedean Nation and Jodi Ann Morgan both made ten. Shanna Thompson, Deandra Dottin and Danielle Small each took two wickets as the Bajans restricted Jamaica to 65 all out in 19.5 overs.
