BASSETERRE, St Kitts (CMC) — Barbados Royals' second win came courtesy of the West Indies-South African connection of Hayley Matthews and Chloe Tryon here Saturday.

In pursuit of 59 for victory in their fourth match of the Women's Sixty, Royals were propelled by Tryon's unbeaten 27 and Matthews's unbeaten 25, the pair posting 56-run in an unbroken second-wicket stand as Royals beat Guyana Amazon Warriors by five wickets at Warner Park.

Tryon, a 28-year-old with a long career for South Africa, punched two fours in a 21-ball knock while Matthews, the newly appointed West Indies captain, lashed three fours off 18 balls.

The partnership was critical after West Indies batsman Britney Cooper fell cheaply for one with the score on three in the second over.

Earlier, Amazon Warriors were dismissed for 58 with a ball remaining in the innings, former West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor top-scoring with 28 from 25 balls with four fours.

Amazon Warriors were 53 for two in the ninth over but then lost four wickets for five runs in a late order collapse.
