Jamaica will go in search of win number two in the Cricket West Indies Regional Women's Super50 Championship when they oppose Windward Islands today at Kensington Park.

The game is scheduled to begin 9:30 am.

In another second-round game, Trinidad and Tobago seek their first win of the tournament when they take on Leeward Islands at Sabina Park.

In the other game, Barbados and Guyana, who both recorded first-round wins, clash at Chedwin Park.

Jamaica, the freshly crowned regional Twenty20 champions, got off their 50-over campaign off to a positive start with a seven-wicket win over staunch rivals Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday.

Guided by Captain Stafanie Taylor's 98 not out, Jamaica made 226-3 in reply to T&T's 225-9.

But Taylor feels there is improvement needed against Windward Islands, particularly in the bowling department.

“I know Windwards are a competitive team, so we have to go out there and not lift our feet off the gas [pedal] and press on,” she said.

“Our fielding is horrible — we are not fielding well as a team and I know we can field a lot better than this,” Taylor added in reference to the sloppy display two days ago.

At Sabina Park, Trinidad are heavy favourites to beat a Leewards team that lost all games in the T20 competition and also opened with a loss in the 50-over format.

A closely fought game is expected at Chedwin Park. However, Barbados, who only missed out on the T20 title due to an inferior head-to-head record against Jamaica, have the psychological advantage after defeating Guyana in the shorter format last week.
