2022 CWI Women’s T20 Blaze Round 2, Guyana vs Trinidad & Tobago

Home team seeking vengeance following nightmare loss

By Clifton Ross
FOLLOWING their horrific opening-round loss, Guyana will be keen on making amends come today, when they battle Trinidad and Tobago in Round 2 of the T20 Blaze.
Much like Trinidad, Guyana shot themselves in the foot by blowing an easy chance to draw first blood. After scampering to reach 87, which fell short by 7 runs, more could be expected from the local women today.

Skipper Shemaine Campbelle looked good with bat in hand, so too did Shabika Gajnabi; but these two core members in the Windies women’s team will need to play much better than they did in the last game.

With a decorated batting line-up featuring the aforementioned duo, along with openers Mandy Mangru and Katana Mentore, coupled with Lashana Toussaint, Tremayne Smartt and other experienced players; Guyana should easily post a triple-figure score, come their second outing at Providence.

The local bowling unit will need to continue their aggressive approach, given their stars like Cherry-Ann Fraser, Kaysia Schultz, Erva Giddings and others looked impressive during Monday’s opening match.
The Trinidadians, on the other hand, look a bit more out-of-sorts than their opponents today. Jamaica had their way with the Twin Islands Republic team who failed terribly in a chase of 100-plus runs.

Their batting was suspect on the Providence surface as only one player made double figures. But with seasoned stars in Anisa Mohammed, Brittany Cooper, Lee-Ann Kirby to name a few, a turnaround could be expected against Guyana.

The Round 2 clash will also see Hayley Matthews and the Bajan women tackle Leewards in a bid to keep their winning ways alive, after snatching a win from the clutches of Guyana.
Windward Islands women will also seek to maintain their momentum and notch up another win when they battle another winning side Jamaica.
