It was the turn of the Cham-
pionship clubs to share in the
spotlight at Guaracara Park but
the rain which has been a factor
in this tournament so far showed
up again around 4.30 pm to wash
out the semifinal clash between
Tableland and Victoria and in the
process sending Tableland into
Tableland progressed because
they had four wins in the prelim-
inary round compared to two wins
by Victoria. The guys from Table-
land, however, made hay while the
sun shone yesterday and had tallied
an impressive 155 for four off their
20 overs, batting first. However,
rain at the interval prevented Vic-
toria from chasing down the win-
Earlier, Amando Patterson and
Alden Lewis set the tone for Table-
land with a good opening stand.
While Patterson attacked, Lewis
kept the singles coming and they
proved to be a perfect foil for one
another. Lewis was the first to go
for 38 but at that point Victoria
was already on the back foot.
The left-handed Patterson con-
tinued the good work and when
he finally fell for 56 with six fours
and a six, it was left up to fast
bowler Daniel St Clair to finish the
job. The aggressive right-hander
spanked an unbeaten 30 off just
16 balls to take his team to their
final score of 155 for four off 20
Former T&T and West Indies
leg-spinner Rajindra Dhanraj was
put to the sword by the Tableland
batsmen and although he snared
two wickets, he conceded 39 runs.
The second game of the night
featuring a semifinal clash between
premiership clubs Queen s Park
and Moosai was also under threat
from the elements but organisers
were hopeful that the game would
have come off.
CAVE HILL---Members of the West
Indies Women s team completed a
two-week, skills training camp over
the weekend at the Sagicor West
Indies High Performance Centre in
A squad of 13, including off-spinner
Anisa Mohammed, left-handed bats-
wicketkeeper/batsman Natasha McLean
and fast bowler Subrina Munroe were
all part of the training sessions.
All four players felt the camp was
timely, coming ahead of a busy schedule
for the players in the next few months
that includes the Regional Women s
Super50 and a tri-nation home series
against highly-regarded teams England
and New Zealand.
Mohammed said she thinks the camp
was valuable due to the individual
attention that each player was able to
receive from the coaching staff.
"It was a very important camp for
plenty of individual attention and so
we were able to work on stuff that
needed to be worked on," she said.
"My batting has improved a bit, so
hopefully if it comes down to me in a
game, I think I have the confidence to
handle the situation and make some
runs for the team and my bowling has
also improved a lot compared to last
year and the year before.
"I have been struggling lately with
my bowling, but this camp has really
helped me a lot and I am really con-
fident and hopefully I can take my
100th One-Day International wicket
during the upcoming tri-nation series."
Mohammed said she was looking to
build on the work she did during the
next few months, as she prepares with
her native T&T to play in the Regional
Women s Super50 Tournament.
"I am really looking forward to it and
to representing my country once a year,"
she said. "The girls have been training
very hard, they have been to South
Africa, they have done some preparation
so far, so it will be going back and work-
ing with them for the next two months.
"Then the Windies Women have
England and New Zealand. We have a
record of winning home series and it
would be a plus for us to win our first
tri-nation home series."
McLean said the best was yet to come
for her and the Windies Women, and
felt the camp helped her to re-focus
on working hard at her game.
"It was a good opportunity to get to
work on the areas that I knew needed
work and I have seen some improve-
ment," she said.
"My batting will come along, but I
have to continue working hard and look
for success. I learnt a lot about being
focused and being patient.
