Female T20 Inter-County: Grimmond stars in easy Berbice win over Essequibo

SUMMARY: Essequibo 44 all out from 14.5 overs (Varuni Pitamber 15, Laurene Williams 12; Sheneta Grimmond 3-12, Shabika Gajnabi 2-2, Ashmini Munisar 2-7) vs Berbice 45-3 from 6.4 overs (Sheneta Grimmond 22; Yonette Welcome 2-17)


Berbice made a rollicking start to the Guyana Cricket Board’s Female Inter-County T20 competition, rolling over Essequibo by seven wickets at Malteenoes on Thursday.

West Indies player Sheneta Grimmond turned in a brilliant all-round performance, as Berbice romped to victory at 45-3 in 6.4 overs after dismissing Essequibo for 44 in 14.5 overs.

Grimmond led the short run-chase with an unbeaten 22 off 13 balls, striking four fours.

The off-spinner earlier took 3-12 off 2.5 overs and received support from fellow internationals Shabika Gajnabi (2-2) and Ashmini Munisar (2-7) to strangle Essequibo’s batters.

Only Varuni Pitamber with 15 off 20 (2x4s) and opener Laurence Williams with 12 off 16 got double-figures scores for Essequibo.

The competition continues on Friday with Essequibo versus Demerara, followed by the final round between Demerara and Berbice on Saturday.

Both matches will start at 13:30h at Malteenoes.

The Inter-County competition is being used to select the Guyana team to compete in the Cricket West Indies Regional Women’s tournament, set for St. Kitts in March.
