Antigua & Barbuda wins first match of T-20 Leeward Islands female cricket tournament


St. Kitts and Nevis (Sports Page) – The T-20 aspect of the Leeward Islands female cricket tournament, bowled off at the ET Willet Park on Wednesday 26th April.

Host Nevis, faced off with Antigua and Barbuda.

The visitors won the toss and elected to take first knock.

Two early wickets must have created a stir in their dressing room, but the in- form Amanda Edwards, batted superbly and found a willing ally, in Jenisen Richards.

Eventually Antigua & Barbuda got to a challenging 99 for 8 in their allotted twenty overs.

The home team was doing well, once Melecia Clarke and later Rozel Liburd were at the crease, but Captain Chey-Anne Moses, true to form, ‘parted the red sea,’ picking up those two crucial wickets.

That exposed the long Nevis tail, which managed to wag to 86 for 9.

Summarized scores: Antigua & Barbuda 99 for 8: Amanda Edwards 36; Jenisen Richards 20

Martha Dookhan 3 for 14; Rozel Liburd 2 for 20; Arsheena Freeman 1 for 14

Nevis 86 for 9 in 20 overs: Melecia Clarke 42; Rozel Liburd 18

Chey -Anne Moses 3 for 5; Amanda Edwards 3 for 16; Jenisen Richards 1 for 6

Antigua & Barbuda won by 13 runs

Nevis engages St. Kitts today at the Conaree grounds, starting at 2 pm.
