Indies leg-spinner Samuel
Badree made two early
strikes but they were not
enough to save Royal Chal-
lengers Bangalore from a
heavy seven-wicket defeat
to Gujarat Lions in the In-
dian Premier League yes-
Defending an inade-
quate 134 all out off their
20 overs at the M Chin-
naswamy Stadium, the
hosts started brightly
when Trinidadian Badree
removed both openers to
reduce Lions to 23 for two
in the fifth over.
Ishan Kishan missed a
sweep at a straight de-
livery in the third over
and was hit in front for 16
while danger man Brendon
McCullum picked out AB
de Villiers in the deep in
Badree's next over.
However, Australian Aar-
on Finch blasted 72 off 34
deliveries, in a 92-run third
wicket stand with captain
Suresh Raina (34 not out)
which pulled the innings
Badree finished with two
for 29 from his three overs.
KINGSTOWN---Barbados brushed aside
Windward Islands to take control of
the Women's Regional Super50 while
Trinidad and Tobago kept Jamaica win-
less, following the fourth round of the
competition on Wednesday.
In a clash of the tournament's two un-
beaten teams, Barbados used their potent
pace attack to good effect to set up a com-
fortable by six-wicket victory at Arnos Vale
Stadium, and leapfrog their opponents to
the top of the points standings.
Sent in, Windwards were restricted to 83
all out off 24.3 overs, with Nerissa Crafton
getting 26 and Quiana Joseph, 25.
West Indies fast bowler Shamilia Con-
nell extended her excellent form in the
tournament by grabbing four for 15 from
six overs while new-ball partner Shakera
Selman, who also wears international col-
ours, supported with two for 16.
The pair ripped the heart out of the
Windwards with a devastating opening
burst, reducing the innings to the strife of
15 for six in the 10th over before Crafton
and Joseph put on a face-saving 58 for the
In reply, Kyshona Knight steered Barba-
dos to victory with an unbeaten 28 from
26 deliveries including four boundaries
while teenaged West Indies opener Hayley
Matthews chipped in with 24, in a 37-run
opening stand with Kycia Knight (13).
Windies leg-spinner Afy Fletcher picked
up three for 19.
At Park Hill, T&T condemned the Stafanie
Taylor-led Jamaica to their fourth straight
defeat with a nine-run verdict.
In a game reduced to 24 overs per side,
T&T rallied to 111 for eight off 24 overs with
opener Reniece Boyce top-scoring with an
unbeaten 31 off 38 deliveries with three fours
and two sixes.
She put on 45 for the first wicket with Felicia Walters
(13) before becoming the first casualty in the 11th over.
Jamaica were making a fist of it at 49 for one in the
ninth over when Rashada Williams (15) and Shanel
Daley (17) were involved in a 33-run stand.
But three wickets -- including that of Taylor for
three -- fell for eight runs in the space of 26 deliveries
and it was left to Chinelle Henry (18) and Chedean
Nation (16) to revive the innings in a fifth wicket
stand of 31.
However,just when victory seemed to be beckoning,
Jamaica suffered another slump, losing five wickets
for eight runs to derail the run chase.
Slow medium bowler Karishma Ramharack was
the best bowler with three for 10.
In the other game at Sion Hill, Guyana easily chased
down a small target of 42 to beat Leeward Islands by
seven wickets and post their first win. CMC
