Ogle Leads Guyana To Victory
KINGSTON, Jamaica – June Ogle captured the headlines with a half-century to lead Guyana to a comfortable 69-run victory over Grenada in the first round of the Regional Women’s Twenty20 Tournament on Wednesday here.
Ogle, the Guyana captain, collected three fours in 56 from 59 balls, anchoring her side to 119 for six from their 20 overs, after choosing to bat in the morning game at Chedwin Park. She put 59 for the wicket with fellow West Indies Women’s player Tremayne Smartt and was the glue that held the innings together before she was bowled by Akcina Peters with the penultimate ball of the innings.
Smartt made 27, but no other Guyanese batter passed 20, as Peters led Grenada’s bowling with 3-24 from her four overs.
Joann Vansertima then grabbed 3-5 from 2.1 overs, Prudence Williams snared 3-7 from her four overs, and Smartt scalped 2-11 from four overs, bowling the Guyanese to victory with 17 balls remaining, as no Grenadian batter reached double figures.
