Jamaica, the current Women’s T20 Blaze champions, secured their second consecutive victory of the tournament over the weekend. They managed to fend off a determined Trinidad and Tobago team to clinch a hard-fought six-run win. Despite the tough competition, Jamaica emerged from the match unscathed and remain a strong contender in the tournament.
In the final game of the triple-header at Warner Park, Jamaica successfully defended their score of 116 under lights. They restricted T&T to 109 for nine off their 20 overs, with Neisha-Ann Waisome, a lively seamer, claiming three for 16.
Trinidad and Tobago suffered a defeat in their latest match following a previous victory over Barbados. West Indies’ prominent batswoman, Britney Cooper, led the team’s batting performance with a swift 29 runs off 32 balls. However, the rest of the team failed to surpass 20 runs, resulting in their first loss.
In a recent match, Jamaica was propelled to victory by the impressive performances of West Indies players Chedean Nation and Rashada, who both scored 32 runs. Additionally, Natasha McLean, also a West Indies player, contributed to the team’s success with 24 runs.
In a recent cricket match, Anisa Mohammed, a veteran off-spinner and captain of the Trinidad and Tobago team, claimed three wickets for 19 runs. Meanwhile, seamer Lee-Ann Kirby also contributed to the team’s success by taking two wickets for 18 runs.
Jamaica is currently leading the standings with eight points ahead of the third round on Tuesday. Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, and Windward Islands are all tied with four points, while Leeward Islands remain at the bottom without a win.
Jamaica’s cricket team has started off strong after their recent victory over Leewards. In their latest match, opener Williams led the charge with a run-a-ball knock that included a four and a six. Williams also contributed to partnerships with Ferron and Nation, putting on 23 and 27 runs respectively for the first and second wickets.
In a recent cricket match, Williams made a top-edged slog sweep to backward square off off-spinner Samara Ramnath. However, Nation’s impressive performance inspired a further 47 for the third wicket with McLean, including three fours in another run-a-ball effort.
In a thrilling match, Mohammed proved to be a key player for the team as she caused a major upset for Jamaica in the final overs. With her impressive performance, she managed to knock over Waisome (7), Vanessa Watts (2), and Nicole Campbelle (0) in the 19th over, leaving the opposition struggling to recover.
Jamaica took control of the match as Waisome scored two crucial wickets, causing Trinidad and Tobago to slump to 38 for four during the run chase at the halfway stage.
In a valiant effort to save the innings, Cooper managed to score two fours and a six, contributing a vital 38 runs for the fifth wicket alongside Anisa Mohammed (16). Trinidad and Tobago’s hopes were dashed in the 17th over as Cooper was bowled by fast bowler Celina Whyte while attempting a cross-batted heave. This unfortunate event all but sealed T&T’s fate. – CMC
