Candacy Atkins

Candacy Atkins, from New Amsterdam in Berbice, was introduced to cricket at age 13 by a cousin, and never looked back.

Her natural all-round ability, as a right-hand batter and medium pacer, earned her a place in the Guyana team in the first-ever West Indies women’s championship in 2001. Good performances in regional competition allowed her to become the first Guyanese female to play for the West Indies female team, when she made her debut for West Indies against Sri Lanka in March 2003, in Trinidad.

Indomatie Goordial

Born to parents who were not into sports, Indomatie Goordial is the eldest of three children, and the only member of her family interested in sports. As a little 12-year-old, she started playing tape-ball and softball cricket with the boys at the Bygeval Secondary School and soon started playing for the Eastern Warriors, which practiced in Buxton. The team soon moved to Malteenoes in Georgetown, where the facilities and coaching were better.
