Aguilleira puts T&T back on track

KINGSTOWN–Aguilleira was not out on 30 and dominated an unbroken 43-run, fifth-wicket stand with opener Felicia Walters to take T&T past their target of 83 with 123 balls remaining.

Earlier, rookie Caneisha Isaac took 4-22 from eight overs to earn the Player-of-the-Match award, as the Guyanese were bowled out for 83 in 42.4 overs.

No batsman reached 20 for the Guyanese, whose batting was further undermined by top-rated Windies Women’s off-spinner Anisa Mohammed collecting 3-15 from nine overs and slow bowler Karishma Ramharack bagging 2-0 from 4.4 overs.

At the Arnos Vale Stadium, teenaged West Indies batting star Hayley Matthews made her presence felt, stroking an unbeaten half-century to fire Barbados to a comfortable seven-wicket win over Jamaica.

Set a meagre 88 for victory , Barbados romped home in the 24th over with the right-handed Matthews carving out a delighful 56 not out.

Kycia Knight fell cheaply for five in the fifth over with the score on 20 but the 19-year-old Matthews partnered with Reshelle Griffith (14) to add 40 for the second wicket and take Barbados to the brink of victory.

Matthews struck 10 fours in her 73-ball knock.

There was no such enterprise from West Indies Women’s skipper, Stafanie Taylor, who was dismissed without scoring as Jamaica, sent in, were bowled out for 87 off 34.1 overs.

Her Windies teammate Chedean Nation top-scored with 17 but it was medium pacer Deandra Dottin who shone, ripping through the innings with a spell of four for 22.

Fast bowler Shakera Selman, who has also played for West Indies, claimed two for 17.

In the other game ar Park Hill, Twenty20 World Cup star Afy Fletcher produced a solid all-rounder performance to help Windward Islands brush aside Leeward Islands by 75 runs.

She struck 29 in the Windwards’ 179 all out off 41.1 overs and returned to take three for 23 as the Leewards were bowled out for 104 off 36.2 overs. CMC
