Barbados’ defence of the Cricket West Indies CG Insurance T-20 Blaze Championship has ended on a sad note for last year’s champs. The title now belongs to Jamaica who finished the tournament today with a superior net run rate and thus claimed the coveted trophy in what was a keenly contested battle.
The T-20 Blaze provided some exciting competition between the female teams representing the various franchises around the region over the last couple of days at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
