Off-spinner Leandra Ramdeen and the consistent Reniece Boyce yesterday spearheaded another win for title contenders Trinidad and Tobago in the ongoing Cricket West Indies (CWI) Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 Cup at Everest as they defeated Jamaica by four wickets to extend their unbeaten run.
Trinidad, after winning the toss and electing to field, bundled out Jamaica for 115 in 29.5 overs with Ramdeen bagging 4-35. Fellow off-spinner Karishma Ramharack took 3-19 and Anisa Mohammed 2-27.
Only Tameka Stanford (24) got an innings going for Jamaica in what was a disappointing batting effort.
Trinidad then reached 118 for 6 – courtesy of a gritty lower order batting performance from Boyce (31) and Lee-Ann Kirby (39*) who added 68 runs to dig their side out of trouble after they were struggling at 38-5.
Boyce, who continues to be Trinidad’s most dependable batter, struck five fours while Kirby reached the fence on six occasions. Seamer Chinelle Henry (3-18) snared to keep the Jamaican’s in the hunt early on.
Trinidad will now play Barbados who are also unbeaten in the tournament’s decider tomorrow at Enmore.
