High-riding Jamaica Women will go in search of their second win in the Cricket West Indies Super50 tournament when they square-off with Windward Islands Women in round two action at Kensington Park today.

Guided by an unbeaten 98 from captain Stafanie Taylor, Jamaica, who captured the preceding T20 tournament, scored an emphatic seven wickets win over defending champions Trinidad and Tobago in the opening round.

"It's good to get off on the right footing, but we will need to come again and get in right in our next games," expressed Taylor.

"The Windwards are usually one of those teams, who normally put up a fight against us, and as such we will need to focus."

Jamaica, in addition to Taylor, will again look to Chedean Nation, Natasha McLean, Chinelle Henry, and rookie opener Rashada Williams. In-form seamers Nation and Roshana Outar are expected to lead the bowling.

The Windwards will enter the contest seeking to rebound after losing their opening match to Barbados. In other matches, Trinidad and Tobago will face Leewards at Sabina Park, while Barbados and Guyana will face-off at Chedwin Park.

All matches are scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m.
