Jamaica, T&T in crucial clash in Regional Women's Super50
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):
Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) remain on course for a spot in the final of the Regional Women's Super50 following the third round of the championship which concluded on Monday.
While Barbados trounced South Windwards by 102 runs at the National Cricket Centre in Couva, hosts T&T strolled to
an equally uncomplicated six-wicket victory over Guyana Macaulay Park in California. Both teams are the only unbeaten ones in the competition.
T&T lead the standings with 12 points, but are just one ahead of Barbados, with defending champions Jamaica a further four points back in third.
Guyana also have seven points, but are fourth on net run rate, while North Windwards and South Windwards bring up the rear with two points each.
T&T, however, face a crucial clash today when they take on Jamaica at the National Cricket Centre.
The hosts will fancy their chances of full points, especially with the Jamaicans having played unconvincingly and picking up their first win on Monday with a 116-run verdict over South Windwards.
Barbados, meanwhile, have a far easier assignment against the winless North Windwards at Caldrac and will see the fixture as an excellent opportunity to top the tables, especially if T&T slip up.
The remaining game will see Guyana squaring off with South Windwards at Gilbert Park.
Sunday's final, following the last round of preliminary games on Friday, will be contested between the two top teams in the table.
Last year, Jamaica beat Guyana in the final at Windsor Park, when the tournament was hosted in Dominica.
