Barbados pair of Shaquana Quintyne and Hayley Matthews dominated the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Cricket Association Invitational Regional Under-19 tournament to lead their team to the title following their easy 22-run victory over hosts T&T in the rain-affected title-decider at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva, yesterday.
Quintyne, who is a West Indies senior women’s player, scored 21 to lead the Bajans to 50 for seven off their reduced ten overs before grabbing four wickets for four runs, including two in the first over to derail the T&T chase and steer her team on course for victory.
Matthews also contributed to the win snatching two wickets for two runs to ensure T&T did not recover from a horrible start. Quintyne was named the tournament MVP and also took home the trophies for most runs, most wickets, most catches.
T&T keeper Reniece Boyce received the trophy for most dismissals by a wicket-keeper as T&T finished second overall. Matthews also received a special award for scoring the only century of the tournament.
Barbados 50-7 (10 overs) (Shaquana Quintyne 21; Karishma Ramharrack 2/6) vs T&T 28 (9.5 overs) (Shaquana Quintyne 4/4, Haley Matthews 2/2, Aaliyah A Alleyne 2/4)—Barbados won by 22 runs
