Defending Champions Trinidad & Tobago were seeking that first victory in the 2017 tournament when they played Guyana in their 2nd match. T&T won the toss and Captain Merissa Aguilleira asked the Guyanese to bat first. T&T fielded a team with one change which saw Shanice Pascall favoured over Reniece Boyce. Caneisha Isaac struck with the 2nd ball of the very first over, when she had June Ogle caught behind by Aguilleira for 0. Four balls later, Melanie Henry for duck, was Isaac’s second victim, as once again Aguilleira took the catch behind the stumps. Guyana in big trouble at 2/2.  Shamaine Campbelle on 3 was wicket number three when Isaac had her bails flying in the 9th over. And Isaac accounted for Katana Mentore for 6 in the 11th over as she took the wickets of the first four Guyanese batters.

Tremaine Smartt and Lashuna Toussaint had a 41 run partnership that looked like it would have given Guyana a solid total after the disaster up front. But the T&T bowlers had other ideas, as Anisa Mohammed showed why she was one of the top spinners in the world. Mohammed accounted for the wickets of both Smartt and Toussaint for 15 and 16 respectively. Guyana now 61/6 in the 27th over. The score then became 68/7 when Karishma Ramharack trapped Akaze Thompson for 5,  then 76/8 when Shanice Pascall scalped Erva Giddings for 0. Subrina Munroe was the only tailender to offer some resistance, making 14 before Ramharack bowled her and Anisa Mohammed wrapped up the Guyana innings when she had Plaffiana Millington caught by Shenelle Lord for 1. Guyana 83 ALL OUT in 42.4 overs.

T&T had a shambolic start to their run chase at the paltry total, as Rachel Vincent’s batting woes continued, this time trapped by Erva Giddings for 0. Then it became 13/2 when Britney Cooper was bowled by Giddings for 6. Opener Felicia Walters and veteran Stacy Ann King then steadied the ship as they put on 27 before King was caught off Monroe for 18. Shanice Pascall joined Walters and lasted all off 2 balls before Monroe bowled her for 0. T&T now 41/4 and looking like they won’t reach the 84 run target.

But Skipper Merissa Aguilleira strode in and took charge, ensuring T&T had their first win. She finished on 30 not out which included 4 fours, with her was Walters, who survived from the opening to end on 15 not out, inclusive of 1 four. T&T reaching the target of 84 runs in 29.4 overs.

Bowling for T&T, Caneisha Issac had 4/22 from 8 overs. Anisa Mohammed 3/15 from 9 overs but Karishma Ramharack had stellar figures of 2/0 from 4.4 over with 4 maiden overs. Isaac was Player of the Match for her match winning, top-order havoc.

2016 Runners up Jamaica are yet to register a win in this year’s competition, as they lost to a Barbadian team that looks like the team to beat this year. Barbados won the toss and sent Jamaica in to bat first, which proved a good decision. Shamilia Connell picked up the first wicket of Natasha McLean for 6. Jamaica 10/1 in the 7th over. Shakera Selman then trapped Jodian Morgan LBW for 5, Jamaica 20/2, then it became 20/3 in the same over when Captain Stafanie Taylor was also trapped LBW for 0. Rashida Williams soldiered on and added 14 with Shanel Daly before Daly fell for 4 to Hayley Matthews. Chedean Nation top scored with 17 and Chinelle Henry with 10 as the only other batters to reach double figures. Deandra Dottin and Keila Elliot accounted for the remaining Jamaican wickets.

Jamaica 87 ALL OUT in 34.1 overs. Deandra Dottin finished with 4/24 from 7 overs, Keila Elliot had 2/9 from 2.1 overs and Shakera Selman had 2/17 from 10.

Amanda Edwards with 21 runs was the top scorer for the Leewards when it was their turn to bat, followed by Terez Parker with 14 and Tynetta McKoy 12. The Leewards were bowled out for 104 in 36.2 overs, handing the Windward Islands victory by 75 runs.
