Record partnership leads Guyana girls to 176-1 against Grenada
Guyana batted very well on the second day of the West Indies Cricket Board's Women's 50-Over League rattling up 176-1 off 50 overs against Grenada at Stubbs on Friday. Led by experienced opener June Ogle-Thomas and captain Shemaine Campbell they made the tournament's highest score to date. Ogle-Thomas made 81 not out, while Campbell, the teenaged West Indies player, finished on 64 not out. The pair added a record unbeaten 161 for the second wicket after the only wicket to fall went by the run out route. For Grenada spinner Helen Hunte did a great job, conceding a mere 12 runs from her 10 overs.
After a disappointing opening day when they were bowled out for just 99, Barbados rebounded to reach 154-2 off 29 overs against Dominica at Arnos Vale 2. Openers Kycia Knight and Charlene Taitt added 93 for the first wicket to provide a great start. Knight made 47, while Taitt is on 47 not out. Pam Lavine is on 31 not out and has so far helped Taitt added 55 for the third wicket.
At Arnos Vale 1, Trinidad and Tobago moved to 110-3 off 37.3 overs against St Vincent and the Grenadines. The topscore has so far come from Gaitri Seetahal who made 53 before she was forced to retire hurt. There has been a delay due to rain in the other match between Jamaica and St Lucia at Victoria Park. The Jamaicans reached 10-0 in four overs. The match officials have been meeting with the captains and will soon decide on a re-start time.
