Easy draw

 Whether  by design or otherwise, the four toughest teams apart from Trinidad and Tobago have been drawn apart from the host and favourites T&T for the inaugural Women’s Caribbean Cup, which will be held in the twin Island republic between August 19-26. 

The Soca Princesses have drawn Antigua & Barbuda, Martinique, St Kitts & Nevis in Group A—teams which have never beaten them—while the tougher Group B comprise Bermuda, Jamaica, Haiti and Puerto Rico. At least two will be eliminated at the semi-final stage, while the draw gives T&T a clear path to the final, should they perform as expected. 

Regarded as the strongest Caribbean team, the Soca Princesses open the tournament against St. Kitts & Nevis on August 20.
