Taylor’s brilliance overshadows centurion Campbelle
West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor struck a masterful century to overshadow a Shemaine Campbelle hundred in Round Two of the Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 at the Everest ground, Camp Road.
Taylor’s knock for Jamaica ensured Guyana remained without a win after two games, and now in a battle to remain in contention for the title.
Batting first after winning the toss, Guyana posted 242 with skipper Campbelle leading the way with 111. The right-hander added 98 with Tremayne Smartt, who made 58, as the two contributed the bulk of the runs for the home side. Taylor took 3-44.
In reply, Jamaica coasted to 244-4 off 46.5 overs with Taylor striking 119. Rashada Williams made 47 and Chedean Nation 30. Erva Giddings claimed 3-39.
Elsewhere, Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews and Kycia Knight powered Barbados to a mammoth 334-3 from their 50 overs against the Windward Islands, who responded with 93-9 at the National Stadium in Providence, and Trinidad and Tobago had the shortest match of the round, dismissing Leeward Islands for 76 to win by six wickets.
