National player Britney Cooper struck
64 last Sunday to give the Phoenix
Women only its second win in the pre-
miership division of the T&T Women s
Cricket Association 40-over competition,
defeating Cricket Lovers by 13 runs in
round seven action.
Cooper top scored to guide Phoenix to
a competitive 158/9 in a shortened 33-over
contest. Shenelle Lord, another national
player, struck 47, while Amy Holder picked
up 3/26 for Cricket Lovers.
Despite 56 from Natalie Ninah, the Lovers
fell for 145 in 32.1 overs. Samantha Bissoon
(2/23), Stephanie Ramcharan (2/26), and
Leandra Ramdeen (2/25) all finished with
similiar bowling figures.
In the other premiership match between
Maaad Rangers and Technocrats, no
umpires showed up and the match was
SYLHET---West Indies Women stormed to
the top of Group B with their third straight
win, after trouncing Sri Lanka Women by
eight wickets at the at the Sylhet Stadium
in Bangladesh, yesterday.
The victory was set up by left-arm spinner
Shanel Daley who grabbed four for 15 from
her four overs to send Sri Lanka tumbling to
84 all out off 16.5 overs.
Prolific opener Stafanie Taylor then made
the result a formality by anchoring a measured
run chase which saw West Indies reach their
target with five overs to spare.
With the win, the Caribbean women moved
to six points, virtually assuring themselves of
a semi-final spot, with just one game left to
play in the preliminaries.
Opting to bat first, Sri Lanka Women started
well to reach 41 for one in the fifth over before
suffering a sudden collapse to lose their last
nine wickets for 43 runs.
Opener Yasoda Mendis top scored with 21
while Eshani Kaushalya got 20 but they were
the only two players to pass 20.
Mendis put on 25 for the first wicket with
Chamari Jayangani who managed just three
before she was bowled by pacer Tremayne
Smartt (3-15) in the fourth over.
Sri Lanka rebuilt through Mendis and Sripali
Weerakkody (11) but Daley struck in her first
over -- the sixth of the innings -- removing
Mendis with the third delivery and Weerakkody
with her fifth.
At 69 for four in the 12th over Sri Lanka
appeared to be making a recovery but another
clatter of wickets sealed their fate. Daley prised
out Shashikala Siriwardene (9), inspiring the
final collapse that saw the final six wickets
fall for just 15 runs.
Taylor and Kycia Knight (15) then gave West
Indies a solid start of 36 from 41 balls, to
negate any chance of a Sri Lanka comeback.
The right-handed Taylor faced 45 balls and
struck seven fours while Knight got 15 before
she was stumped off off-spinner Siriwardene.
Taylor and Deandra Dottin (7) put on a fur-
ther 35 for the second wicket, a partnership
that put the Windies Women within sight of
