T20 Blaze: Guyana, Trinidad split points after washout at Providence


By Avenash Ramzan


No play was possible in the Cricket West Indies CG United Women’s T20 Blaze match between Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday morning at the National Stadium, Providence.

Overnight and early morning showers forced an abandonment and an equal share of the points.

The rain kept the groundstaff busy all morning, and when it subsided momentarily, the two captains- Shemaine Campbelle of Guyana and Anisa Mohammed of Trinidad and Tobago- walked out to spin the toss with Trinidad and Tobago calling correctly and opting to bowl.

However, the showers returned for a sustained period, forcing match officials to call off the contest at approximately 12:20h.

Both teams lost their opening game on Tuesday- Guyana fell short by seven runs against defending champions Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago suffered a 79-run defeat to Jamaica.

Coach of the Guyana team Julian Moore was understandably disappointed with the results thus far.

“Not the start we were hoping for,” he told News Room Sport after the washout.

“We went down in the first game- that was a hard pill to swallow. But we were really looking forward to today’s clash, to really come out and get some points under our belt. It’s a bit disappointing, but we have no control over the weather.”

Later on today at the same venue, Leeward Islands will take on Barbados from 14:30h and Jamaica will play Windward Islands from 19:00h.
