KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC):

Opener Felicia Walters stroked a half-century as Trinidad and Tobago defeated Barbados by 21 runs here yesterday to successfully defend their Women's Regional Super50 title.

Playing in the final at the Arnos Vale Stadium, T&T were bowled out for 164 off 46 overs, with Walters top-scoring with a patient 53. Reniece Boyce got 29 and Rachael Vincent, 20.

Leg-spinner Keila Elliot was the best bowler with four for 47 while seamer Deandra Dottin picked up three for 41.

In reply, Barbados battled back from a terrible start to appear on course for victory at 70 for two in the 19th over before collapsing to lose their last eight wickets for 63 runs.

West Indies Women stars Dottin and Kyshona Knight both hit 32 while Charlene Taitt chimed in with 24.

Slow medium Felicia Walters helped hurt the innings with three for 25 while slow bowler Karishma Ramharack (2-10), fast bowler Shenelle Lord (2-27) and off-spinner Anisa Mohammed (2-36) all finished with two wickets each.
