GEORGETOWN, Guyana- Hayley Matthews spun a web of magic over the Leeward Islands, to lead Barbados to an emphatic 7-wicket victory in Round 1 of the Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 Cup.
The tournament bowled off with three matches playing concurrently, Trinidad & Tobago against home team Guyana at the National Stadium in Providence, Jamaica against the Windward Islands at the Georgetown Cricket Club and Barbados against the Leeward Islands at Everest Cricket Club.

- Hayley Matthews struck with both bat and ball in captaining Barbados for the first time at the senior level. She took 7/27 and scored 23 runs in her team’s destruction of the Leeward Islands ladies.
