Defending Courts T20 champions UdeCOTT North Starblazers opened their defence of the title with a win in the first round on Wednesday night at the National Cricket Centre (NCC) in Couva.

Led by brilliant batting from Rachael Vincent, they took away an easy seven-wicket victory over Tridents Sports Phoenix at the National Cricket Centre (NCC) in Couva. Chasing 154 runs for victory, Vincent opening the batting took control and in the end was able to guide her team to victory. She scored an unbeaten 83 off 63 balls with seven fours and two sixes. She got good support from Jodian Morgan who scored 30 off 15 balls with one four and three sixes.

Earlier, skipper Lee Ann Kirby was brilliant with the ball, taking four wickets for 21 runs to restrict Phoenix to 153/5 off their allotted 20 overs. The only batter who handled her was Windies player Stacy Ann King, who slapped an unbeaten 78 off 61 balls with seven fours and a six.

The other game in the opening round between LCB Central Sharks and TECU Southern Titans did not come off as planned as the pitch at Wilson Road in Penal was found to be wet by the umpires. Rain in the Southland put paid to this game, as there was seepage under the covers that prevented any play. Both teams left the venue with one point each.

The second round was due to come off last night weather permitting. UdeCOTT North Starblazers were to come up against LCB Contractors at the NCC, while Tridents Sports Phoenix was due to play TECU Southern Titans at the Brian Lara Academy.


At the NCC: Tridents Sports Phoenix 153/5 (20) (Stacy Ann King 78no, Lee Ann Kirby 4/21) vs UdeCOTT North Starblazers 154/3 (19.1) (Rachael Vincent 83no, Jodian Morgan 30) - Starblazers won by 7 wickets.

At Wilson Road: TECU Southern Titans vs LCB Central Sharks - no play.
