Jamaica’s captain Stafanie Taylor picked up 2/12 and Chinelle Henry 2/22.

Jahzara Claxton was the top scorer with 25 not out followed by Divya Saxena with 17. Steffie Soogrim had 1/6 from her four overs.

The Red Force Divas had lite work to do in reaching their target. Britney Cooper fell for 21, but Shunelle Sawh 20 and Djenaba 22 both not out at the end, took their team to victory. Shawnisha Hector took the lone wicket to finish with 1/10.

Barbados rebounded from their shocking first round defeat to the Leeward Islands, with a 19-run win over the Windward Islands. Batting first, Barbados were in early trouble losing wickets consistently but Trishan Holder stood her ground and took her team to a competitive 123/5 from their 20 overs. She played back-to-back scoop shots to bring up her half-century and shared in a vital 30-run partnership with Shamilia Connell, to finish on 67 not out. Skipper Aaliyah Allyene added 28. Zaida james took 2/28 and Pearl Etienne 1/15.

The Windwards batters were held back by disciplined bowling from Barbados. Erin Deane 2/12 and Aaliyah Alleyne 2/17 were the pick of the Barbadian bowling. While Windwards captain Afy Fletcher held her never for 28 off 32, she ran out of partners in her team’s chase. Next best was Namiah Marcellin with 19, as the Windwards reached 104/8 in their 20 overs.
