Jamaica and Guyana are set to lock horns for match no. 10 at the ongoing 2023 edition of the Women’s Super50 Cup. The game is due to be played on the 15th of May, 2023, at Warner Park, Basseterre, and gets underway at 7:30 PM Indian Standard Time (IST).
Both Jamaica and Guyana haven’t had the best of starts to the tournament, having claimed one win each out of their respective three games. While Guyana’s one-run win had come in their most recent outing, Jamaica registered their lone win in the curtain raiser.
Jamaica – Stafanie Taylor (C), Rashada Williams, Natasha McLean, Vanessa Watts, Keneshia Ferron, Neisha-Ann Waisome, Chedean Nation, Jody-Ann Brown, Lena Scott, Sherene Burnett, Shereka Shelton, Kate Wilmott, Nicole Campbell, Celina Whyte
Guyana – Shemaine Campbelle (C), Shabika Gajnabi, Plaffianna Millington, Sheneta Grimmond, Ashmini Munisar, Katana Mentore, Cherry-Ann Fraser, Mandy Mangru, Kaysia Schultz, Realeanna Grimmond, Cyanna Retemiah, Nyia Latchman, Tilleya Madramootoo, Analesia D’ Aguiar
Players to watch out:
The 28-year-old keeper-batter in 31 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) has scored 441 runs and with a couple of fifties to her name, has got the highest of 82. Natasha has looked fine in the series thus far with scores of 33(29), 59*(60), and 27(35).
The 29-year-old Jamaican all-rounder is yet to debut for the national side and while she’s started the series well, has got to look to finish on a high. Neisha, in the series, has produced bowling figures of 1/26 (7), 1/29 (11), and 3/65 (10).
The 22-year-old in ODIs has scored 190 runs in 22 innings and has struck 5 wickets as well. Shakibi didn’t have the best of starts as she was run-out for 4 in the opener and a golden duck followed, but then had an all-round game registering figures of 2/31 (8) and 49(61).
The 23-year-old (Left arm Orthodox) debuted late last year against England and recorded notable figures of 2/52 (7). Kaysia only had one bad outing thus far, conceding 40 runs in 4 overs, while producing figures of 0/20 (5) and 0/15 (6) in the remaining couple.
The 22 yards at Warner Park, Basseterre, provide a somewhat neutral playing field as the conditions are advantageous to both batters and bowlers. Spinners particularly benefit from the conditions, and a score in the 140s can be deemed as a competitive total on this wicket.
Despite cloudy overheads and a minimal chance of rain, the forecast promises a complete game of cricket. The temperature is expected to hover around 38°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 69%.
