Jamaica end regional women's Super50 with two wins

Jamaica's senior women's cricketers closed out the regional Super50 competition in St Kitts with two wins after a narrow eight run victory over Windward Islands at the Conaree Sports Complex.

Batting first, the Jamaicans folded for 105 all out in 38. 2 overs. Jody-Ann Brown top-scored with 23, while Chedean Nation made 16.

Sherene Burnett 13 and Rashada Williams 12, were the other batters in double figures.

West Indies leg spinner Afy Fletcher wrecked the Jamaican batting with 6-29, while there were two wickets each for Janniella Glasgow and Pearl Etienne.

However, the Jamaicans through an inspired Spell from Vanessa Watts with 4-20 and Chedean Nation 3-17, rolled over the Windwards for 97 in 22.5 overs.

Celina Whyte and Neisha Ann Waisome supported with a wicket each.

Malika Edward 35, was the top scorer for the Windwards in an innings that had 19 extras and five batters making a duck.

The Jamaicans finished tied on eight points with the Windwards  and Guyana behind runaway winners Barbados on 20 points.

The Bajans made it five wins from five matches with a seven wicket win over Leeward Islands. Trinidad and Tobago finished second after a 76 run win over Guyana.

The teams will now turn their attention to the T20 Blaze that bowls off on Saturday. The Jamaicans are the defending champions.
