Women’s Super50 Cup: All-round Matthews consigns Guyana to second straight defeat

SUMMARY: Guyana Women 121 all out from 34.3 overs (Sheneta Grimmond 24, Kaysia Schultz 21, Shemaine Campbelle 21; Shakira Selman 2-16, Shanika Connel 2-21, Hayley Matthews 2-25, Keila Elliot 2-30) vs Barbados Women 122-1 from 17.1 (Hayley Matthews 72*, Kycia Knight 40; Sheneta Grimmind 1-22)


Hayley Matthews was the star with bat and ball for Barbados as Guyana suffered a second straight defeat in the Cricket West Indies’ CG United Women’s Super50 Cup on Wednesday in St. Kitts.

After Guyana posted 121, Barbados romped to a nine-wicket win in 17.1 overs with the right-handed Matthews racing to an unbeaten 72 off 42 balls (8x4s, 4x6s).

Openers Matthews and Kycia Knight, who made 40 off 54 (5x4s), put together 109 in 15.2 overs to seal a massive victory, one that would significantly dent Guyana’s hopes going forward.

Matthews, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell and Keila Elliott all took two wickets each as the Guyanese were dismissed for 121 in 34.3 overs.

Sheneta Grimmond topscored with 24, and Shemaine Campbelle and Kaysia Schultz made 21 each.

The defeat was Guyana’s second in a row, after also suffering a nine-wicket defeat at the hands of Windward Islands on Monday. In that game, they made 79.

It was Barbados’ second win on the trot, having defeated Trinidad and Tobago by six wickets in the first round.

Guyana will play Leeward Islands in round three on Friday, starting at 10:00h.
