The eagerly anticipated inaugural Regional Women’s Twenty20 Tournament got underway in Jamaica on August 8th with teams from eight Caribbean countries vying for the honors in what are expected to be keenly contested matches.
To be staged at three venues in and around Kingston – Kensington Park, Chedwin Park and Sabina Park – the historic tournament will run until Saturday August 18.
Teams from Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago will join hosts Jamaica, the reigning Regional Women’s Super50 champions.
Josina Luke, the WICB’s project officer for women’s cricket, said the regional governing body was delighted to be staging the tournament at this time.
“The West Indies Women’s team will be going off to England for five T20 matches in early September and this will be followed by the ICC Women’s World T20 in Sri Lanka,” Luke said.
“So this tournament is timely and will provide our players with valuable match practice. It should help to sharpen their skills and help them better understand the ebbs and flows of this format.”
