Regional Women’s Super50: Six-star Soogrim hat-trick destroys Guyana

Guyana Women ended their 2023 Regional Women’s Super50 campaign with their third defeat in St Kitts and Nevis. Led by a masterclass spin spell from left-arm spinner Steffie Soogrim, Trinidad and Tobago defeated Guyana by 76 runs at St Pauls, Saint George Basseterre.

Soogrim ended with 6-14 from 10 overs, including a hat trick which helped Trinidad bowled out Guyana for 56. Earlier, Trinidad and Tobago posted 132-8 from their alloted 50 overs, after Guyana had won the toss and opted to bowl.

Trinidad were reeling at 11-4 but a 48-run stand between Britney Cooper (18) and Anisa Mohammed revived the innings. Mohammed was the top-scorer with a composed 54 from 118 balls. Her unbeaten innings had two fours, while Karishma Ramharack supported with 19 and Soogrim scored 11 not out.

Guyana were already a batter short as Shabika Gajnabi was injured. Plaffianna Millington (15) and Realeanna Grimmond (10) were the only Guyanese batters to reach double figures in a poor batting display. In addition to Soogrim’s 6-14, Ramharack had 2-9 in 7.4 overs.

Soogrim hat trick included Shenata Grimmond, Tilleya Madramootoo and Kaysia Schultz. Guyana ended the Super50 Cup with two wins, (against Jamaica and Leewards) and three defeats, (against Windwards, Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago).

The T20 tournament will be played in St Kitts, and Guyana will play Windward Islands on May 20 from 10:00h at Warner Park St Skitts. Barbados Women were crowned champions again in the Super50 Cup. Jamaica are defending champions of the T20.
