first_imgGuyana skipper Shemaine Campbell and Erva Giddings led the 8-wicket drubbing over Leewards in the final round of the Cricket West Indies (CWI) Women’s T20 Championship.The 5th and final round of the Twenty20 format saw the Guyanese ladies finishing on a high note, after the veteran pacer Giddings dismantled the Leeward Islands attack to end with 4-18 from her four overs which was instrumental in their opponents being mowed down to a measly 50 in 17.5 overs.Guyana’s star-studded bowling attack was again lethal as Subrena Munroe, Tremayne Smartt, Akaze Thompson, Sheneta Grimmond and left-arm spinner Kaysia Schultz; chipping in with a wicket apiece.Leewards dismal batting outing was headlined by top-scorer Saneldo Willet who scored 11, as everyone else failed to pass 5. Chasing a meagre total, Guyana wrapped up their chase in empathic style; racing to 53-2 in 10.1 overs.The chase was led by Captain Campbell, whose form in the T20s will have the selectors’ head turning, after she top-scored yet again; this time with three 4s and a six in her match-winning 28.Meanwhile, Leann Kirby’s 46 saw her claim the player of the match award as Trinidad romped to a 7-wicket win over the Windward Islands while Roshanna Outar was declared Player of the Match in hosts Jamaica’s 4-run win over Barbados, which helped them capture the T20 Blaze Title.last_img
