CARTER... It has been

it for the Golden Bat

MOHALI, India, CMC — Jonathan Carter says he will be targeting another big score in Barbados Tridents' final game of the Champions League Twenty20 today, as he looks to get his hand on the Golden Bat. Despite Tridents' poor showing in the tournament, the left-hander has been in excellent form with 173 runs from three innings, including a superb unbeaten 111 not out against Cape Cobras last week.

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) — A splendid half-century from Player-of-the-Series Deandra Dottin was not enough as West Indies Women went down to New Zealand Women via a tense Super Over, to concede their three-match Twenty20 International series here Saturday. Set 112 for victory at Arnos Vale, West Indies recovered from a position of 21 for three in the fifth over to tie the scores at the end of the regular innings, thanks mainly to Dottin's superbly controlled top score of 54.

BANGALORE, India (CMC) — West Indies one-day captain Dwayne Bravo played a minor role while opener Dwayne Smith failed again, but Chennai Super Kings did just enough to beat Perth Scorchers by 13 runs and edge closer to a semi-final spot in the Champions League Twenty20 here Saturday. Sent in, Chennai overcame a terrible start to post 155 for six off their 20 overs and then produced a clinical bowling performance to restrict Scorchers to 142 for seven at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Findley ton in vain as rain halts St Elizabeth vs Hanover cricket match

Findley ton in vain as rain halts St Elizabeth vs Hanover cricket match

RAIN forced a no-result in yesterday's third-round Zone A game between hosts St Elizabeth CA and Hanover CA at Manley Horne Park in the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) All-island 50 overs competition. However, before the premature curtailment to the game, reduced to 25 overs per side because of a delayed start due to a damp pitch, former national left-handed batsman Shawn Findlay shone brightly with 100 not out in St Elizabeth's 225-9. Hanover were 75-3 off 10 overs when the rain came. St El ... Read More

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC) -- Assistant coach Ezra Moseley believes Deandra Dottin's new measured approach is a reflection of her recent maturity as a player and says this will be a big boost to the West Indies Women's team.

No matter that West Indies are ranked eighth by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Test match cricket. They are still expected to easily beat Bangladesh. Once that job was done in August/September — efficiently in three One Day Internationals as well as two Test matches -- there wasn't a lot left to say. Of far more note in the long-term interest of West Indies cricket was the new "watershed" Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) and Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed last ... Read More
