Kirby Called up, King Overlooked for WI World Cup Camp 2504 2560 CWESN

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua– Deandra Dottin has been named with twenty other players by Cricket West Indies’ Selection Panel, for a pre-world cup camp from January 6-25 in Antigua to finalise their preparations for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Deandra returns to West Indies Women’s duty after shoulder surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation period, which ensured her full recovery and availability for the team. Captain Stafanie Taylor, who missed the T20 International series against the visiting Indian Women’s team in November, will also be returning, along with bowlers Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman.

CWI’s Women’s and Girls Head Selector, Ann Browne-John said, “The panel has selected a squad showing a mix of youth and experience in preparation for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The recently concluded Women’s Franchise Tournament in Trinidad also gave the panel an opportunity to view the players in a T20 setting just prior to the World Cup.”

Browne- John added, “Deandra Dottin seemed to return right where she left off before her injury and had remarkable performances from the first match. Shamilia Connell and Shakera Selman are also returning from injury and the panel hopes that by the time the final selection is to be made for the World Cup, all players will be fit and ready.”

The pre-world cup camp is scheduled from January 6-25, during which the final squad for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will be selected before departure to Australia. The ICC Women’s T20 World Cup will take place between February 21 and March 8.

The 21-member Training Camp Squad:

  1. Stafanie Taylor
  2. Deandra Dottin
  3. Shamilia Connell
  4. Hayley Matthews
  5. Aaliyah Alleyne
  6. Shakera Selman

Secondary School students to play alongside National/WI Players in exhibition match

Secondary School students to play alongside National/WI Players in exhibition match 2560 1823 CWESN

The Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association (TTWCA) will be engaging Secondary School cricketers in an exhibition match ahead of its Courts Grand Slam Women’s T20 Franchise Tournament. The match will take place on Saturday, November 30, from 2pm at the National Cricket Centre. 

The match will see the young secondary school students playing on teams alongside national players, who will be competing in the Courts Grand Slam from December 3 to 13. Eight (8) school girls and six (6) Franchise players will form each team. Students will get to interact with and play alongside WI players such as Reneice Boyce, Karishma Ramharack and Britney Cooper as well as a number of T&T players. They will also have the opportunity to interact with other non playing WI and T&T players such as Anisa Mohammed. 

This initiative by the TTWCA is a step towards bridging the gap between Secondary School cricketers, club cricket and national cricket. 

“We would like to create a pathway from schools cricket all the way up to the national team and this is one of the initiatives we are having to do that,” said Ann Browne John, Vice President of the TTWCA and CWI Head Women and Girls Selector. “We are seeing the development of the women’s game locally, we are playing our part in various ways, and we want young girls entering the world of women’s cricket, to know that there is a national team and who are the national and WI players they can emulate and look up to.” 

Browne-John noted that local clubs will also be present as they hope to encourage more girls to join clubs. 

The TTWCA recently wrapped up a High Performance camp for U17 players which included a number of outstanding players who also compete in the Secondary Schools Cricket League and have included an U19 spot on all Franchise teams to ensure that young players are exposed to cricket at a high level. 

“We see cricket rapidly evolving globally; the ICC has indicated the introduction of a women’s U19 World Cup in the future, women’s cricket will be included in the 2022 Commonwealth Games and we intend to make the Courts GrandSlam an international event eventually, so we want to increase our pool of players, while preparing them to take advantage of the many opportunities being created everyday.”

Some of the schools which will participating in the match include Holy Faith Convent, Couva, Holy Name Convent POS, St Joseph’s Convent, Barrackpore Secondary and Iere High School.

ICYMI: $25,000 up for grabs, Courts increases their investment, LCB central Sharks issues challenge to other teams, Stacy-Ann King hopes to build franchise fan base and the TTWCA plans to make Franchise League international

The Courts Women’s T20 GrandSlam Franchise Tournament was launched yesterday, with many announcements, challenges, and expectations being mentioned by those lauding the start of the 3rd edition of the tournament which bowls off from December 3 to 13.

Courts Corporate Social Responsibility Regional Officer, Nicole Loney-Mills, announced an increase in the company’s investment in the tournament while also commending the TTWCA for the continued growth of the event:

“This is a significant moment for us as we celebrate the evolution of women’s cricket. It is also our pleasure to announce that this year, our investment totals $100,000. We have had a long and fruitful relationship with the cricket fraternity and this partnership further pushes the envelope for continued development of sport to new heights. More importantly I see this as an investment in building our people and our community. At Unicomer, we are very passionate and committed about the development of our people and we extend this value to our business partners, key stakeholders and communities we support through our various public relations and corporate social responsibility initiatives. 

It is also our hope that the Courts T20 Franchise Tournament will serve as a platform for changing the game to encourage greater participation by our female cricketers. Through this avenue we will be able to identify new talent that could represent not only Trinidad and Tobago but West Indies cricket on the International stage at the highest level of competition.” – Nicole Loney-Mills 

WI all-rounder, Stacy Ann King encouraged fans to come out and support while also speaking about the establishment of franchise merchandise to further boost a fan base:

“The opportunity to develop a high level of professionalism that will contribute the the continued development of women’s cricket throughout the region, is one of the first and foremost aims of this event. We also embrace the prospect of establishing our own respective franchise fan base through the use of replica t-shirts and support via social media. The players are very appreciative of this continued support by the TTWCA, CWI and MSYA, Courts, the franchise holders; Trident Sports Phoenix, LCB Contractors, UDECOTT, and all the other sponsors who have shown faith in the development of local and regional women’s cricket.” – Stacy-Ann King, West Indies all-rounder and captain of the Phoenix Sports Tridents.

Manager of the LCB Central Sharks, Ian Telfer encouraged more sponsors to invest in the women’s game while issuing a challenging tot he other franchise teams on behalf of the LCB Central Sharks:

“These ladies are professionals in every sense of the word. Those of you don’t come, who find it inconvenient, you missed it. You missed some incredible moments in sport. Our girls give of their best, come on, can’t we even give them part of our best, can’t we show some support? I manage the LCB Central Sharks, we are the defending champions and I am challenging every other team; “come and get us.” The target is on our back, we know, we were the underdogs last year, we know that you all are coming for us this year, and I want to say one thing; “We will be glad to meet you, we will be even happier to greet you and then we will be glad to beat you.” – Ian Telfer, Manager of the LCB Central Sharks

CWI Head Women and Girls Selector and TTWCA Vice President, Ann Browne-John shared the Association’s plans for bigger and better things in the future, including making the event international:

“When this tournament was started three years ago, I don’t think any of us anticipated how it would grow. But the brand of cricket the girls have played over the past two years has made this tournament start to grow from strength to strength. And the is evident in the fact that this year, we are going to have every West Indian player who is not injured and that’s just about two injuries, but all the other top WI players are going to be present in this tournament. 

This franchise tournament has been placed on the Cricket West Indies Calendar for the next 2 years. When we started this tournament it was primarily  because the TTWCA is committed to the development of girls and women in the country and we have tried to show that commitment yearly through our leagues, which include a 50 over league for the premiership and a 30 over league for the Championship development, a T20 tournament, a T10 Tournament, we run a Regional U19 tournament which CWI has also come on board with us for that now and our plan is to grow this tournament, not just local, not just regional, but soon to have an international flavour. We know it will cost money and we will have to plan for it but that is how we would like to go.” – Ann Brown John, CWI Head Women and Girls Selector and Vice President of the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association.

Taylor to miss rest of Big Bash

Taylor to miss rest of Big Bash 3742 2650 CWESN

Stafanie Taylor will not take part in the remainder of the Women’s Big Bash League after she picked up a knee injury during the WI vs India series this month.

Taylor picked up a ligament sprain during the final ODI on November 9, and a prolonged recovery period (previously expected to take two weeks) means she will not be able to return to the WBBL in time for the Strikers’ last two group games next weekend.

England’s Lauren Winfield who was Taylor’s temporary replacement, will stay on with the Strikers.

“We are of course disappointed that Stafanie is unable to return, but unfortunately these things happen in sport,” said Strikers coach Luke Williams.

“We’re really grateful however, that Lauren has been able to stay on longer as she’s just been fantastic around the group and brings a lot, on and off the field.

“We need to just now concentrate on our final few games and cementing our place in the top four.”

Taylor was crucial for the Sydney Thunder over the past four WBBL series, however, the Strikers have benefitted from the classy all-rounder in just two games this year before she had to fly home for international duty.

The all-rounder will now take the time to rest and recuperate ahead of the Courts Women’s T20 GrandSlam Franchise Tournament carded to take place between December 3-13 in Trinidad and Tobago.

The move is also no doubt a strategic one by Cricket West Indies as they try to ensure all their players are healthy ahead of the 2020 ICC Women’s World T20 in Australia. The team has recently been plagued with a number of high profile injuries which include their hard hitting all-rounder, Deandra Dottin, opening seamers, Shakera Selman and Shamilia Connell, as well as others who have since recovered. CWI will be hoping that their players remain fit, particularly given their recent poor showing without the above mentioned players and particularly Taylor.

The countdown to the 3rd edition of the Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam Franchise Tournament is on and in 2019 it will feature none other than WI skipper, Stafanie Taylor. 

“I am really looking forward to participating in the Courts T20 Grand Slam this year. I have participated in the WWBL and the Kia Super League for the past few years and being a part of that energy and atmosphere, I have always wanted to have something like that back in the Caribbean,” said Taylor 

Taylor, currently ranked as the no. 3 All-rounder in the world and no. 4 on the batters list, hopes that the tournament can invigorate further interest in the women’s game from players, fans and sponsors alike.

“Women’s cricket is really growing globally; thousands of people come out to watch these leagues, and lots of sponsors back teams. I would love to see that level of excitement and interest in women’s cricket in the Caribbean,” she said. “We have a lot of talent coming from all the islands, and the support of the fans is needed”.

She commended the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association for the initiative, as well as Cricket West Indies for providing further support. “I have to commend both the TTWCA and CWI as well as all other sponsors and team owners for helping to make this tournament happen. We are heading into the T20 World Cup next year and this is going to provide some much needed playing time for the girls who will eventually make the team.

Taylor will line up for the Southern Titans in this year’s tournament which bowls off on December 3 with the Grand Final on December 13th.

The 3rd Edition of the Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam Franchise Tournament will take place from December 3-13. Each of the four Franchises will have a full complement of West Indies Stars.

Courts continues their support of the Tournament for a 3rd consecutive year, while Cricket West Indies will continue their support for the event ensuring that the top West Indies Players are available. 

This year, defending 2018 captain Anisa Mohammed, of LCB Contractors Central Sharks, will come up against the likes of Stafanie Taylor, Afy Fletcher, Britney Cooper, Hayley Matthews and Stacy-Ann King to name a few. This will be Taylor’s debut in the tournament. 

Speaking on behalf of the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association (TTWCA), past West Indies Captain, Merissa Aguilleira shared her expectation for a bigger, better event, thanks to the support of various stakeholders. 

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Courts this year and welcome Cricket West Indies’ increased support for the event,” said Aguilleira. “This tournament is the first and only women’s cricket franchise event in this region and our goal is to grow it into one of the biggest franchise events in the world.” She also thanked the other sponsors on board thus far.

Aguilleira promises an exciting, action packed tournament, noting that it was initially postponed to ensure that all WI players would be available. This she explained was to guarantee high quality competition and entertainment. As a former West Indies captain, she also feels the tournament will be a good opportunity for WI players, as well as aspiring ones, to hone their skills ahead of the upcoming 2020 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia. 

For Courts, their support is simply a continuation of its commitment to community and sport. “We are very proud of this tournament, we have seen it grow tremendously over the past two years and expect that it will continue on its upward trajectory,” said Nicole Loney-Mills

Corporate Social Responsibility Regional Officer, Unicomer.  “Other countries are investing heavily in women’s cricket and leagues such as the Women’s Big Bash and Kia Super League have grown in stature. Both have contributed to the development of the Australian and England Women’s teams and we believe this tournament will play a significant role in developing the WI Women in the coming years. We are simply happy to do our part”

The local franchises include defending champs, LCB Central Sharks, runners up, Southern Titans, Trident Sports Phoenix and UDECOTT North Starblazers. Matches will take place at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, UWI Spec and the National Cricket Center.

The Barbados women’s cricket team have a point to prove. They pack a star studded line-up that includes hard hitting Deandra Dottin, World no. all-rounder, Haley Matthews, WI opening bowlers, Shakera Selman and Shamilia Connell and WI batswoman, Kycia Knight. However, they often struggle to execute… they are hoping that this year, they can come together to lift the CWI T20 Blaze title.

Underdogs Clash for Spot in Finals

Underdogs Clash for Spot in Finals 150 150 CWESN

The two teams which started off the Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam Franchise Tournament as underdogs, will meet in the playoff eliminator tonight from 7pm at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba, for a chance in the final.

LCB Contractors Central Sharks, who finished second on the points table, will meet Trident Sports Phoenix who finished third. The both teams played each other on Wednesday night, with the Sharks getting the better of Phoenix by seven wickets. Both teams got off to rough starts in the tournament, losing their first two matches. Sharks’ first match vs TECU Southern Titans was called off due to a wet outfield, and they proceeded to lose their next two matches. They rebounded however and won all three of their second round matches. Similarly, Phoenix lost their first two matches but rebounded to win their next three before going down to the Sharks on Wednesday night.

Over at the National Cricket Center (NCC), Couva, TECU Southern Titans defeated the defending champions, UDECOTT North Starblazers by 77 runs to knock them out of the competition, as they remained on 4 points and thus at the bottom of the four-team table.

At BLCA, Phoenix were inserted by Sharks skipper, Anisa Mohammed and went about building a decent total of 142 at the end of their 20 overs, despite a superb spell of bowling from Samantha Bissoon who picked up all four of the wickets to fall in the innings. However, steady, pivotal contributions from skipper Stacy Ann King (34), Rosalie Dolabaille (28) and Bajan, Kycia Knight (27) were enough to get them to what seemed like a defendable total.

In reply, Sharks started slowly, as openers Felicia Walters and Canadian Achini Perera struggled to get the ball away, but their patience paid off and despite losing Perera for 8 off 13 balls and Bissoon shortly after for 5, WI wicket-keeper batswoman, Shemaine Campbell paired up with Walters to provide the stability the Sharks desperately needed.

Walters top scored with 71, and was run out only in the final over while Campbell was 47 n.o when the winning run was struck by Akaze Thompson, with a ball to spare. The win put the Sharks on 7 points while Phoenix stayed on 6 from their three wins.

At NCC, Titans skipper, Britney Cooper smashed an unbeaten 92 to send the defending champions, Starblazers packing and out of the competition. Starblazers were the only team in a must win situation at the start of the 6th and final round and Titans ensured that their hopes of reaching the playoffs for a shot at defending their title would be no more.

Thanks to Cooper, Titans amassed a massive total of 191 for 5 at the end of their 20 overs. Cooper’s 92 came off of 59 balls, which was way out of the reach of the Lee-ann Kirby led Starblazers. Kirby herself would lead from the front, top scoring with a valiant 34, but she found no support and her side was eventually bowled out for 114 in 15.1 overs.

Titans Upset Phoenix, Sharks Shoot Starblazers Down

Titans Upset Phoenix, Sharks Shoot Starblazers Down 150 150 CWESN

Kycia Knight had a vital knock of 68 as Trident Sports Phoenix earned a six-wicket victory over TECU Southern Titans at the National Cricket Centre, Balmain, Couva on Tuesday night, as the Courts T20 Grand Slam Tournament continued.

In the other game on Tuesday night, LCB Contractors Central Sharks recorded a 20-run win over 2017 champs UDECOTT North Starblazers, at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba.

Last evening, in the final set of games in the preliminary round, Southern Titans faced North Starblazers at Couva and Phoenix met Central Sharks at Couva.

The top team overall will move automatically to Saturday’s final at Tarouba, and the second and third-placed teams will face each other in an eliminator tomorrow, also at Tarouba, for a spot in the title match.

After five matches, Phoenix have a total of six points, with Southern Titans and Central Sharks on five points apiece, and North Starblazers at the bottom of the standings with four points.

In Tuesday’s contest at Couva, Phoenix, chasing a victory target of 160, reached 162 runs for four wickets in 18.5 overs.

Knight, opening the batting, struck 11 fours in her 46-ball knock. The Barbadian, who was named Player of the Match, got good support from Reniece Boyce, who made a 33-ball 34 (three fours and a six) and Rosalie Dolabaille with 20 off 19 balls.

Another Bajan, Shakera Selman, took two wickets for 36 runs for Southern Titans.

The Southern Titans, who were sent in to bat, posted 159/4 with veteran Bajan and West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin slamming an unbeaten 70, which was decorated with seven fours and three sixes off 36 balls.

Captain Britney Cooper made 21 and Shenelle Lord chipped in with 20. Karishma Ramharack, skipper Stacy Ann King and Allison Collins took a wicket apiece for Phoenix.

At Tarouba, Central Sharks, who were offered first strike, scored 142/7 in their allotted 20 overs.

Samanta Bissoon had a top score of 65 (57 balls, 11 fours), with other useful knocks from Chinelle Henry (31 not out off 17 balls with four fours) and Akaze Thompson (25 from 31 balls with two fours). Lee Ann Kirby was the leading wicket-taker for North Starblazers with 2/15.

Bissoon, who copped the Player of the Match award, returned figures of 3/12, and veteran national and West Indies off-spinner Anisa Mohammed got 2/22 as North Starblazers were restricted to 122/8 in reply.

Shabika Gajnabi led the way for North Starblazers with 42 (43 balls, one four and three sixes), and Kirbyina Alexander chipped in with 35 (30 balls, four fours).

Sharks Devour Titans, Phoenix Cruise Past Starblazers 150 150 CWESN

Follow CWESN on Facebook or Twitter for live score updates during matches as well as everything happening with the Courts Women’s T20 Grandslam Franchise Tournament

Trident Sports Phoenix continued to pick up their pace on Sunday, getting the better of defending champions, UDECOTT North Starblazers with a convincing 6-wicket win at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba. While over at the National Cricket Center, LCB Central Sharks upset table topper, TECU Titans by 8 wickets.

Opting to field first, Phoenix restricted Starblazers to a paltry 104 at the end of their 20 overs, with leading run scorer, Rachel Vincent scoring 35 from 29 balls and Kirbyina Alexander contributing an unbeaten 34. Alice Collins 2/17 and Stephanie Ragoonath 1/14 were the pick of the Phoenix bowlers.

In reply, Phoenix stumbled a bit, losing 4 wickets to get to their target, but a steady half century from Kycia Knight saw them home with 4.5 overs to spare. Knight was not out on 55 will Rosalie Dollabaile was also not out on 19.

At NCC, the Sharks recorded their first win of the tournament thanks to a tight spin attack that restricted the Titans to just 136 at the end of their 20 overs before Felica Walters and Shemaine Campbell made light work of that total.

The Titans opted to take first strike and were superbly led by skipper Britney Cooper who played a controlled knock of 74 that came off of 50 overs. But she found herself without much support outside of of a quick fire 30 from WI all-rounder, Deandra Dottin. It got them to 136, but the Sharks bowlers were  the stars of that innings, with Skipper Anisa Mohammed opting to bowl 16 overs of spin on a slow turning.

In reply, the Titans would have quickly regretted dropping their leading spin bowler, Rosemary Samaroo and were forced to bowl largely medium pace with Dottin and Shakera Selman being their opening pair. Dottin picked up one wicket for 29 runs in 3.3 overs while Selman finished without a scalp to her name. It would be one of oonly 2 wickets had in the innings as Felicia Walters (60 n.o) and Shemaine Campbell (48 n.o) made very light work of the small total to help their team to their first win in the tournament.

Phoenix Burn Sharks, Titans crush Starblazers

Phoenix Burn Sharks, Titans crush Starblazers 150 150 CWESN

Follow CWESN on Facebook or Twitter for live score updates during matches as well as everything happening with the Courts Women’s T20 Grandslam Franchise Tournament

UDECOTT North Starblazers’ unbeaten run came to an end following a two- wicket defeat at the hands of TECU Titans as the 2018 Courts Women’s T20 Grand Slam tournament continued on Saturday at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba.

It means that the Titans now sit on top of the table, courtesy an extra point they received following their washed out match against LCB Central Sharks in the first round of the competition. Starblazers are not far behind on 4 points however. Meanwhile and the National Cricket Centre, Couva, Trident Sports Phoenix were able to record their first victory against LCB Central Sharks who are yet to win a match in the competition.

At the BLCA, Starblazers were sent in to bat first and were dismissed for 126 in 19.3 overs thanks to a destructive spell by WI all-rounder Deandra Dottin who picked up four wickets for 23 runs, while her WI teammate, Shakera Selman grabbed 2/22. Rachel Vincent continued her fine form, getting 72 out of that total, smashing 10 fours and three sixes off just 51 deliveries. Natasha McLean contributed 23 off 26 balls while the Titans did not help themselves with 16 extras.

In reply, steady contributions from Sheneta Grimmond (24), Britney Cooper (21), Shania Abdool and Selman (16 n.o) easily saw the Titans home in 19 overs. Dottin was named Player of the match.

At NCC, some pretty ordinary bowling from the LCB Central Sharks saw Phoenix record a massive 10-wicket victory against them. Opting to bat first, LCB got to 132  thanks to Shemaine Campbell (38), Felicia Walters (25) and Akaze Thompson (26 n.o). However, their bowling let them down and consistent loose balls allowed Phoenix openers, Reniece Boyce and Kycia Knight, both of whom were struggling previously in the tournament, to ease home to victory without breaking a sweat.

Boyce (73 off 58 balls) and Knight (52 off 47 balls) brought the game home for Phoenix with 2.5 overs to spare.

Starblazers Stay On Course for Title Defense

Starblazers Stay On Course for Title Defense 150 150 CWESN

Natasha McLean’s unbeaten 72 helped UDECOTT North Starblazers to their second consecutive victory in as many days, keeping them on course for a possible successful title defense.

Natasha McLean drives one past Gaitri Seetahal

Coming up against LCB Sharks at the National Cricket Center, Couva, last night, Starblazers were sent in to bat and got off to a flyer immediately. The opening pair of skipper Lee-Ann Kirby and Rachel Vincent took advantage of some loose balls by the Sharks to catapult their score to well over 10 runs an over by the 4th over. The sharks pulled things back a bit by the 10th, after removing Kirby in the 6th over for 15 and Jodian Morgan before she could face a ball, but Vincent was soon joined by McLean and the two helped to take their team’s total to 155 at the end of their 20 overs. The score is the highest of the tournament thus far after they successfully chased 153 set by Trident Sports Phoenix the night before.

McLean’s unbeaten 72 came off of 47 balls, while Vincent contributed 42 off 41 balls.

In reply, Sharks lost three early wickets with Felicia Walters (5), Kamara Ragoobar (2) and Shari John (0), all falling inside the powerplay. It gave their middle order a bit too much work to do and they eventually lost by 21 runs despite fighting innings from WI wicket-keeper bat Shemaine Campbell and Jamaican, Chinelle Henry  who both contributed 43 runs each. Jodian Morgan and Alice Collins were the pick of the Starblazers bowling, grabbing 2 wickets a piece.

In the other match played last night, TECU Titans recorded their first win of the tournament, beating Trident Sports Phoenix by 60 runs. Their first match against LCB Sharks was called off due to a wet outfield.

Titans skipper, Britney Cooper led from the front, smashing 76 off 43 balls before she was bowled by Stephanie Ragoonath. WI all-rounder, Deandra Dottin chipped in with a quickfire 27 from 13 balls. Karishma Ramharack was the pick of the Trident Sports Phoenix bowlers, grabbing 3/28 off 3.3 overs.

In reply, Trident Sports never looked to be in it at any point, losing wickets at regular intervals, thanks to tight bowling from Rosemary Samaroo who grabbed three wickets for just 5 runs in her four overs. Reniece Boyce scored a patient 27 off 27 deliveries for Trident Sports Phoenix bu she received no support form the other end and her side was eventually bowled out for 89 runs in 18.4 overs, to hand TECU Titans victory by a 60 run margin.

The Courts Women’s T20 Grandslam Franchise Tournament blasted off last night with action between UDECOTT Starblazers and Trident Sports Phoenix at the National Cricket Center (NCC) Couva. The other scheduled match between LCB Sharks and TECU Titans was called off however due to a wet outfield at the FCB Clarke Road Ground. Both teams will share points from that match.

Spectators who turned out to watch the match at NCC were not disappointed though as they were treated to some exciting cricket that saw scores in excess of 150. Starblazers won the toss and elected to field first in a decision that would pay off in the end as they eventually won the match by seven wickets.

Led by WI all-rounder Stacy Ann King, Phoenix struggled to get a good start, losing three wickets by the 5th over. But King and WI wicket-keeper batswoman, Reniece Boyce consolidated to steady the ship for their side. Boyce was stumped in the 14th over off the bowling of Alice Collins for 18, but King continued on to lead her side to a formidable total of 153 at the end of their 20 overs. She was not out on 78 from 61 balls.


Starblazers skipper, Lee-Ann Kirby was the pick of the bowlers, finishing with figures of 4/21 from her four over allotment.

The total seemed to be a formidable one, but T&T senior batswoman, Rachel Vincent was up to the task. Vincent smashed 83 from 63 balls to lead her team to victory with 5 balls to spare. She was named player of the match for her match winning performance.

Speaking after the game, Kirby commended her team for coming out and executing their game plan as they look to defend their title. “We just need to work hard, practice, be more relaxed and stay positive in our matches.” she said. Kirby also thanked the sponsors and fans for their support and urged more people to come out to the matches.

For her team’s part, King lamented the poor fielding she believes was responsible for their loss, but believes her team can bounce back today as her players have the potential to be match winners.

“To be selected to a franchise team you have to have something about you. The players have the potential so its a matter of all of us correcting the wrongs we did today (yesterday) and looking forward to tomorrow (today).”

Matches continue today with UDECOTT Starblazers meeting LCB Sharks at NCC, while TECU Titans will play Trident Sports Phoenix at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy. Both matches start at 7pm. Entrance is free.

Shania Abdool Thrilled about WI Call 150 150 CWESN

At 18-years old, Shania Abdool is no stranger to cricket, but being called up to a West Indies Women training camp in her debut senior year was something she didn’t expect, even given her recent fine run of form. “It’s quite pleasing to have been called up to the WI training squad, it’s a really amazing opportunity,” said Abdool.

Shania Abdool batting during the recently held CWI T20 Blaze

Abdool had a stellar year with the bat, helping T&T to the U19 Regional title as well as her School Zone – South, to the Secondary Schools Cricket League title. She also had a standout season with her club, Players Sports Club and impressed with the bat during the CWI Women’s Regional Championships this year.

Her inclusion in the training camp therefore, is just reward for a very successful season. Twenty players are currently encamped in Antigua, with Abdool being one of three having their maiden experience.The others are Aria Fortune of Grenada and Sheneta Grimmond.

The West Indies Women are currently preparing for the first stand alone ICC Women’s World T20 Tournament which the WI will be hosting in November. A mix of new and senior players were called, with Shemaine Campbell, who had a standout CWI T20 Blaze tournament being included. Players with previous WI stints such as Natasha McClean and Chinelle Henry were also included.

Shemaine Campbell plays a shot

Speaking with CWESN, the 18-year old, Abdool who hails from Princess Town in Trinidad says she sees the call up as just another opportunity to represent her country and make her family and friends proud. And, despite her age, she believes she has what it takes to make the West Indies Women’s team, and is prepared to do the work to get there.

“My cricket is definitely going to improve and getting this opportunity makes me want to work harder to achieve my goals,” she said. Those goals include actually making the team of course and Abdool hopes that the hard work, dedication and trust in God which have gotten her this far, will be enough to get her there.

The players currently encamped in Antigua are as follows:

Merissa Aguilleira, Deandra Dottin, Kycia Knight, Hayley Matthews, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell, Shemaine Campbell, Shania Abdool, Sheneta Grimmond, Afy Fletcher, Chedean Nation, Shabika Gajnabi, Ariel Fortune, Chinelle Henry, Natasha McClean, Anisa Mohammed, Britney Cooper, Karishma Ramharack, Quiana Joseph, Akeira Peters

The camp which started on July 2 will conclude on July 16. The majority of the players will then travel to Trinidad and Tobago to participate in the upcoming Courts Franchise Tournament beginning on July 18.

 

 

The T20 Tournament the WI Can No Longer Afford

The T20 Tournament the WI Can No Longer Afford 150 150 CWESN

A couple weeks ago; Jamaica won the Cricket West Indies T20 Blaze Tournament – big congrats to them. The defending champs, T&T finished third and Barbados finished second in what can only be described as a heart breaking and most disappointing finish to a great tournament played… up to that point. 

 

A week later, Barbados continued their fine form, picked up bonus points in every match played and this time, their unbeaten run counted for something and they became the new Super50 Champions. 

 

 

If i’m being honest though, outside of Barbados’ run up until their fifth round match, I was not at all impressed with the majority of cricket played throughout the event. It was another year of sub par team and individual performances, outside of a handful of players  and not majority WI players.

West Indies teams are known to be one of the most exciting teams in T20 cricket not just because of their flair, but also because of their unpredictability. Their long term team and player form are never real indicators of their ability to show up when it really matters, and of course, T20 cricket is a funny game – anything can happen on the day.

That being said however, if I were part of the coaching staff of the West Indies Women’s cricket team, I would be just a touch bit worried following their annual T20 tournament. Of course … that could have been said at the tournament just prior to them winning the ICC Women’s T20 two years ago as well.

But contrary to the many minds blown during last years’ ICC Women’s World Cup, anyone following women’s cricket in the two years leading up to that event, would have predicted the results of the WIW, maybe not the South Africa result, but the performances were surely on the cards. And the team selection would have cemented all predictions.

A time is coming in international women’s cricket when we must, as a region, move away from hoping that we fire on the day. In fact, I believe that that time is already upon us. Our players have to begin producing consistent performances throughout the year and especially when they come down a level, like in the T20 Blaze.

Hayley Matthews top scored at the end of the competition with 167 runs from 5 matches and the leading wicket taker was a part-timer – Chedean Nation – who is selected largely as a batswoman at the international level. It should also be noted that WI skipper, Stafanie Taylor was injured in Jamaica’s fourth round encounter with T&T and thus did not bat in that innings, while she also nursed that same injury in the following match. She managed 38, but it was a patient innings lacking her usual flair, no doubt due to that injury. 

Otherwise, no other WI player dominated in a tournament that is nowhere near the international standard they are accustomed to. Such is always the case, year after year, but as mentioned before, based on the developments around the world, this may no longer be acceptable. As we saw in the WWC last year, other countries are now reaping the rewards of having invested time and resources in developing the future of their teams.

Also noteworthy is the fact that the WI women have been engaged in two, month long camps this year in preparation for the upcoming ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. That’s two months, out of less than 6 that they were in camp. The second of those camps ended just under two weeks before the start of the T20 Blaze. It can therefore be assumed, that even if the other players were not adequately prepared, the WI players were. Yet, we did not really see any real positive result.

There were some exciting matches played, but looking at the overall team performances, much was also left to be desired.

Guyana lost two wickets chasing 50 runs against the weakest team in the tournament and the highest total of 143 came in Windward Islands match against Leeward Islands (the team that finished last and without a win).

The defending champions, T&T, were out of the competition half-way through, thanks to their late arrival to the format of cricket they were actually playing. On all accounts and comments, it seems they were preparing for the 50-over competition, up until the 4th round. Barbados lived up to their reputation of ‘only being good on paper’ yet another year (worrying considering their players make up nearly half the WIW team) and Jamaica, though champions, played very sloppy cricket in the end. Though, to their credit, drop catches, poor batting and misfielding or not, they held their nerve where Barbados could not, and such a thing is always most crucial in any final. It’s not just about how much runs you make or wickets you take.

It’s easy to look back on a tournament and sing praises and hand out congratulations without really analyzing the performances, but unless we eventually do that in a serious way, the West Indies Women will be in for some trouble moving forward.

It’s also easy to look at the performances from the perspective of individual teams, but let’s consider that if everyone doesn’t develop, then the entire region actually suffers. We need to remember that the regional tournament is where WI players are scouted and selected. In the larger scheme of things, countries are just clubs in a sense. This is the field where our international players come from, and it seems as though the field needs watering. And it gives one an indication of why the same players have been in constant rotation for years, despite mediocre performances.

The top three teams are the top three teams because they consist largely of the top players. Barbados has the most, with Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell and Kycia Knight. Usually if not for an injury, Kyshona Knight is counted among them. T&T has three senior WI players in former skipper, Merissa Aguilleira, Anisa Mohammed and Britney Cooper, former WI all-rounder, Stacy-Ann King and current new comers to the team, Reniece Boyce and Felicia Walters. Jamaica has the least, with two – Stafanie Taylor and Chedean Nation.

The other regular WI players are Affy Fletcher (Windward Islands), who did not play due to injury, Akeira Peters and Quiana Joseph (Windward Islands), and Tremaine Smartt (Guyana). Shemaine Campbell who was recently dropped from the team had a fairly decent tournament with the bat and gloves. She led her team from the front in most matches.

The only solution of course is to provide each territory with more resources so that more work can be put into developing players and players can play more cricket throughout the year. This is the obvious solution, but as is always the obvious challenge, money makes this an issue.

Players also need to take more responsibility and step up when they are called, or rather put their hands up when they know their team needs them. International players should stand out, not fit in with players, many of who only play that single tournament each year. For many years, many of our international players have been seamlessly fitting in with players who do not play half the amount of cricket they do, nor at that level. 

Getting quality cricket when countries only play a single, two-week tournament each year is no easy task. Some teams only prepare a month or so before the tournament.

The current strategy doesn’t seem to be improving regional cricket. And if cricket at the regional level does not improve, then the international cricket team won’t either. And this would be all well and good, if the rest of the world were not investing heavily in their women. But it is, and the WI needs to do more to keep up. Long gone are the days when we could rely solely on talent when everyone else is merging talent with technology and proper preparation. notably, after the team’s embarrassing outing at its’ last World Cup, the CWI has endeavored to make changes to its preparation process. Hopefully this is not only because the WI are hosting the event. But rather because it has rightfully acknowledged that 1 week camps before tours and limited exposure for new players cannot work anymore. 

Either way, regardless of the challenges, a way forward must be found. Do we sit back and be complacent? Or honest and critical in order to get the job done?

Barbados trounce Guyana, Jamaica lose to T&T

Barbados trounce Guyana, Jamaica lose to T&T 150 150 CWESN

T&T cruised past hosts, Jamaica last night in the Cricket West Indies T20 Blaze at Sabina Park, to set up a must win final match for Jamaica today. It means that the hosts must beat Barbados to win the title in a head to head. Having lost to T&T, Jamaica are second on the points table with nine points, while Barbados sit atop the points table with 12 points as they remain unbeaten.

However, if two teams are to be tied on points, as will be the case if Jamaica beats Barbados today, Jamaica will win based on a head to head as outlined by the playing conditions of the tournament. If Barbados win however, they win by having the most points at the end of the competition.

Last night at Sabina Park, Jamaican captain, Stafanie Taylor won the toss and sent T&T in to bat, but it proved to be disastrous for her side. T&T lost the in-form Britney Cooper, who was pulled out of the match at the last minute after pulling a groin muscle during the warm-up. But it was Jamaica who suffered the bigger loss when Taylor picked up an injury while fielding a ball in the 4th over. It meant that the hosts were without their leading bowler and batswoman early on.

T&T did not seem phased by the loss of Cooper though, and batted in high contrast to their previous outings, showing greater aggression throughout their innings. Lee-Ann Kirby was given the task of opening the batting with Reniece Boyce – T&T’s fourth change to their opening pair in as many matches. Boyce and Kirby got T&T off to a flyer, taking eight runs off the first over bowled by Karla Cohen and 10 off the second by Chinelle Henry. Boyce was trapped LBW for 11 in the third over and Kirby caught caught at mid-off two overs later for 16, leaving T&T at 40/2 in 4.5 overs.

Stacy-Ann King and Rachel Vincent then paired up to take T&T to their highest total of the tournament thus far of 135 for the loss of five wickets. Vincent contributed a quick fire 35 off 30 balls that included three fours and a six, while King top scored with 39.

In reply, Jamaica struggled from the get go without their skipper, with stand-in opener, Rashada Williams contributing a slow 31 off 49 balls before she was run out. Henry, who had her first batting outing for the tournament was the second highest scorer, getting to 24. But they never got anywhere near the target and eventually succumbed to T&T to lose by 43 runs and severely dent their run rate ahead of their final match against Barbados today. Anisa Mohammed was the pick of the T&T bowlers, grabbing three for 17 in her four overs.

T&T meet Windward Islands tomorrow from 6:30 pm, Jamaica time, at Sabina Park. They have no chance of defending their title, having already lost two matches, but will hope to record a victory none-the-less to at least finish third. If Jamaica losses while they win, they will finish second having beaten Jamaica.

In other matches played last night, Windward Islands recorded their second win of the tournament, getting the better of Leeward Islands by 62 runs. LI won the toss and opted to field first and WI wasted no time in piling on the runs. Openers Juliana Nero and Rachel Cyrus had 44 and 30 respectively to take WI to 143 for six at the end of their 20 overs. In reply, LI only managed 81/8 in their 20 overs.

Barbados beat Guyana by 27 runs in the second match played last night. Batting first, Barbados got to 134, thanks to an aggressive knock by Hayley Matthews who raced to 61 off 36 balls before she was out caught. Despite leaving her team on a solid foundation of 99/2 in 11.2 overs however, the remaining batters struggled and contributed just 35 more runs in the remaining 52 balls.

Guyana lost their skipper, Shemaine Campbell, early. Campbelle has led her team with the bat each time they won, but she only managed 11. Akaze Thompson (47) and Shabika Gajnabi combined in an attempt to steady the innings and see their team home, but tight bowling from Barbados prevented it. Both were not out at the end of Guyana’s 20 overs in which they lost three wickets. Guyana face Leeward Islands tomorrow from 9:30 am.
