Guyana Women Defeat Dominica

Date Published: 

Windies Women's player Tremayne Smartt grabbed 3-9 from her four overs, as Dominica failed to successfully chase 153 for victory in their match at Chedwin Park. Erva Giddings grabbed 2-7 from three overs, as Dominica suffered another batting meltdown, keeping them the only winless team in the tournament. No Dominica batter reached 20 with Pearl Etienne, a West Indies Women’s player, leading the way with 14.

Smartt had put the wheels in motion for a Guyana victory, when she smote seven fours in an unbeaten 70 – the highest score in the tournament so far – from 60 balls. She added 76 for the fifth wicket with Melanie Henry and 48 – unbroken – with Prudence Williams, reviving Guyana from a shaky 28 for four, after they elected to bat.

Henry scored 31 and Williams made 15, but no Dominica bowler was able to collect more than one wicket, Etienne being their most economical with four overs for 17 including the wicket of opener and West Indies Women’s player Shemaine Campbelle for four.
