NEWLY-CROWNED league champions Cricket
Lovers will renew rivalry with runners-up Ball Players
when they clash for the Knock-Out title in the 2015
SIS California Women s Windball Cricket League
Competition on Friday.
Both teams were victorious in their semifinal matches
on Sunday, with Cricket Lovers beating defending KO
champions Tamana United in a close encounter by
four runs, while Ball Players had a comfortable 24-
run victory over Base Girlz.
Enjoying a highly successful season, Cricket Lovers
will be going all out to capture their third title, after
copping the opening-day round robin crown and the
prestigious league championship. On the other hand,
Ball Players, who were edged out of the league title on
a marginally lower run rate, are determined to mark
their excellent season in a tangible manner by taking
home the KO trophy.
Wilton Flex Griffith, founder and president of the
SIS California Women s Windball Cricket League, said
yesterday that the knock-out final should be an exciting
contest since both Cricket Lovers and Ball Players have
been the most consistent teams for the 2015 season.
"Spectators should be in for a real thriller on Friday.
There is keen rivalry between the teams and each would
want to outdo the other. There has been a high standard
of cricket during the season with several players who
are currently representing T&T at the international
level engaged in this league," Griffith pointed out.
West Indies and T&T captain Melissa Aguilera was
on hand to witness Sunday s KO semi-finals. "I have
been hearing about the California women s league for
a long time and it is heartening to know that there are
people who make sacrifices to promote women s cricket.
I am also happy to see several of my colleagues on the
national team playing in this league," Aguilera said.
In the first semifinal played at Macaulay Park, Cal-
ifornia, Cricket Lovers made 67 for seven off their 12
overs against Tamana United. Jovanka Samuel (17) and
Sarah Charles (13) held Cricket Lovers innings together,
while Doreen Bolah (3/7) and Yvette Samuel (3/17)
were the best bowlers for Tamana. Only Sylvia Bolah
(21) put up a real fight as Tamana could only reach 63
for six, losing by four runs.
In the second semi-final, a rampant Ball Players
racked up a commanding 75 for six, with consistent
T&T player Amanda Samaroo contributing 15, and
Gail David, 12. Natasha Trotman (2/10) and Gleniss
Millee (2/9) had best bowling figures for Base Girlz.
In reply, Base Girlz were bowled out for 51, the only
major contribution coming from Alicia Marquis (18).
Jeena Pitty (3/15) and Ria Mangaroo (2/10) did the
damage for Ball Players.
In the first match of Friday s programme, Tamana
United will face off with Base Girlz for third and fourth
places from 2.30 pm, while Cricket Lovers will square
off against Ball Players at 5 pm for the right to be the
2015 Knock-Out champions.
