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.
