Barbados settle for third
Danielle Small and Kycia Knight played significant roles to steer Barbados to third position in the West Indies Cricket Board 2011 Women’s Senior 50 Over Tournament as the home team easily defeated St Lucia by seven wickets at The Pine.
When St Lucia batted after winning the toss Small’s accurate off-spin restricted them to 111 all out in 41.1 overs.
Four players were leg before wicket and one bowled to demonstrate Small’s accuracy as she finished with the magnificent figures of five for nine from six overs.
This was after St Lucia were coasting along with their openers posting 66 for the first wicket.
Swayline Williams topscored with 31 and fellow opener Maria David scored 26 but through an excellent spell of leg-spin bowling by Shaquana Quintyne, the innings fell away from 66 without loss in the 18th over to 111 all out in the 42nd.
Quintyne’s remarkable figures were three for 20 from ten overs as she completed a fine regional season.
When Barbados replied, Small returned with the bat as she and Kycia Knight posted 83 for the first wicket before she was bowled for 35.
Knight went on to post a half-century as the homeside coasted to victory with 30.4 overs to spare. (HE)
