The Trinidad Guardian / Allrounder Leandra Ramdeen and bowler Steffie Soogrim were the leading players for T&T in two rounds of matches played on Thursday in the Regional Invitatitional 19 and Under Girls Tournament.
At Gilbert Park in California, Ramdeen notched an unbeaten half-century (53 not out) to see T&T to a narrow three-run victory over Guyana. This after T&T lost the toss and was put into bat, posting 121-6 in 20 overs.
Guyanese Mandy Mangur and Lafona Gilgeows were responsible for most of those wickets with the former picking up 2/14 and Gilgeows 2/33.
In reply, Guyana reached 118-5 from its 20 overs with some brilliant batting from Shenita Grimmond, producing a half-century (54) and Shabika Gajnabi just short of a half-century with 49 but their contributions were not enough.
Ramdeen, who was later named the “Player of the Match”, also claimed 1/19 in giving good support to fellow bowler Soogrim, who led with 2/17 and Alysha Gomez took 1/19.
Ramdeen, Soogrim and Gomez were also useful in helping the national youth side past the Windward Islands by seven wickets during their morning match at the National Cricket Centre in Balmain, Couva.
Ramdeen scored 22 and her teammate Anjali Goordeen led the scoring 29 not out in getting T&T to 84-3, replying to Windward Islands’ 82-6.
Again Soogrim was the leading wicket-taker with 2/12 while Ramdeen (1/12), Gomez (1/7) and Daylia Alexander (1/9) picked up one wicket each.
