Campbell applauds Smartt’s contribution
 

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – West Indies Women’s coach Sherwin Campbell has showered praise on allrounder Tremayne Smartt, who had a good match against New Zealand in the opening contest of the Women’s T20 International Series.

Smartt, a tall seam bowler, had the impressive figures of 4-0-12-1 with the new ball and was involved in two run outs of New Zealand batters. Her accurate spell helped to peg back the visitors as they were bowled out for 81, chasing 104 for victory.

“She has become our ‘go to’ new ball bowler. She has the ability to make things happen with the new ball, up front and she keeps doing the job for us. She is a hard worker...and she always gives 110 percent no matter the situation. You could say she’s a ‘smart’ allround cricketer,” Campbell said.

“She has worked really hard on her fitness and her fielding and we are seeing the results of that work. We all know she can bat and we rely on her for some runs at whenever she gets a chance. She has opened (the batting) for us before so we all know she can do the job when called upon.”

Smartt, 28, is quiet on and off the field and goes about her business in a dutiful manner. She is a qualified WICB coach and works with the development of young children in her native Guyana.

“I was pleased with my performance and I was happy we came away with a victory. I like to stick to my role in the team and that is to look for those early wickets and build the pressure. I really enjoy what I do on the field, but off the field I prefer just to sit back and relax,” said Smartt.

“If you give me the ball I will look for wickets for the team. If I have to bat I will look to put some runs on the board for the team. In the field I’m always thinking about a catch or a run out. I’m always locked on when I’m out here.

“We played really well against New Zealand and we will look to do the same against England. We just have to stick to the basics and play to our strengths.”
