Afy Fletcher hits five fours in a knock of 40

Afy Fletcher

Grenada’s Afy Fletcher, best known for her leg spin bowling, showed her batting ability, stroking an attractive score of 40 in the West Indies Women’s Inter-squad second practice match at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. 

Team One, captained by Hayley Matthews, posted 167-9 from their 50 overs with Stafanie Taylor playing a patient knock of 42 from 78 deliveries, which included four boundaries, and Fletcher took a liking to the death over bowling smashed five fours on her way to 40 not out.

Guyanese Cherry-Ann Fraser, the right-arm medium pacer bowler was the pick of the bowlers, with figures of 2-20 from five overs, while Steffi Soogrim with the left-arm spin had the batters in a web once again, as she picked up 2-22 to follow up her three wickets in the first match. Fast bowler Shamilia Connell was again in top form and finished with 2-30 from eight overs.

In the second innings, Guyanese Shemaine Campbelle made 50, which included two fours and a six. She shared a 56-run partnership with Anisa Mohammed to rescue Team Two, led by Deandra Dottin, from 70-6 before Mohammed retired hurt on 26. They eventually ended on 154-8 from their 50 over.

Fast bowler Shakera Selman and off-spinner Stafanie Taylor combined for the one-two punch of seam and spin to scalp two wickets a piece. Selman finished with 2-13 from eight overs, while Taylor had 2-26 from eight overs.

The West Indies women’s squad is presently in Antigua for a training camp under the guidance of Head Coach Courtney Walsh. The 24 players completed their schedule on February 03.
