Women’s Super50: Guyana, Trinidad game washed out


For the second time this season, the Guyana and Trinidad and Tobago game in the Cricket West Indies CG United Women’s tournament was called off without a ball bowled.

The Father’s Day clash was supposed to start at 09:30h in what was scheduled to be the fourth game of the revamped Super50 competition.

However, overnight and persistent rain throughout the day meant no cricket was possible. In fact, there was not even an opening to allow for the toss to be spun.

The covers were kept on the pitches all day, as the rain battered the National Stadium at Providence.

Dark clouds hovered over the East Bank Demerara facility for most of the day, and the match officials decided at 13:25h that it was impossible to have any cricket.

The abandonment meant both teams had to leave with an equal share of the points, like they did in the T20 Blaze competition.

In that game, rain also forced an abandonment without a ball bowled, but there was an opening where the toss was possible.

Guyana will next face the Leeward Islands on Tuesday, with the winner progressing to the semi-finals, which get underway the following day.

The fifth place playoff is slated for Friday, with the final billed for Saturday. All matches are being played at the National Stadium.
