GEORGETOWN – Explosive West Indies all-rounder Deandra Dottin again proved superb as Barbados easily retained their Regional Super50 title by brushing aside arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago by 28 runs in their final-round match on Tuesday.
Both sides entered the contest at Enmore on the backs of four straight wins but it was Barbados who proved superior, chalking up 242 for seven off their 50 overs and restricting Trinidad and Tobago to 214 all out in the 48th over.
Not for the first time, Dottin’s performance was the decisive factor as she stroked a half-century and grabbed a six-wicket haul to snatch Player of the Match honours.
After Barbados were sent in, the 27-year-old veteran of over 100 ODIs and T20 Internationals struck a rapid 73 off 43 deliveries, to lead a trio of half-century makers as Kycia Knight top-scored with 77 while her twin, Kyshona Knight, chipped in with 56. (CMC)
