SUMMARY: Guyana 208-8 from 50 overs (Shabika Gajnabi 62, Shemaine Campbelle 42, Ashmini Munisar 29*, Sheneta Grimmond 21; Carena Noel 3-47, Salena Ross 1-9) beat Windward Islands 163 all out from 40.2 overs (Nerissa Crafton 47, Zaida James 21, Noel 18; Plaffianna Millington 2-23, Munisar 2-31, Nyia Latchman 2-39) by 45 runs


Guyana continued their perfect start to the Women’s Super50 Cup, defeating the Windward Islands by 45 runs at Warner Park to remain undefeated after their first two matches in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The Windward Islands inserted Guyana, and it looked to be the correct decision as they cheaply removed openers Mandy Mangru and Naomi Barkoye.

However, Shabika Gajnabi led a solid recovery with a compact 62 (5x4s) from 102 balls, and captain Shemaine Campbelle with 42 (4x4s) from 61 balls.

Ashmini Munisar then struck four fours in an unbeaten 29 from 31 balls, while Sheneta Grimmond also got four boundaries in her 21 from 30 balls, propelling Guyana to a challenging total.

Carena Noel was the most successful for Windward, with 3-47 from seven overs.

Off-spinner Plaffianna Millington, who now has six wickets in two matches, led the stranglehold of the Islanders with 2-23 from nine overs, backed by Munisar (2-31) and Nyia Latchman (2-39)

Meanwhile, Jamaica continued its dominance with a massive win over the Leeward Islands.
