BIRMINGHAM, England – Another inept batting effort sent Barbados Women crashing to a second straight heavy defeat in their final game of the Commonwealth Games today.

Asked to chase a challenging 163 against India Women at Edgbaston, Barbados Women never got out of the blocks and stumbled to a disappointing 62 for eight off their 20 overs.

Kyshona Knight, with 16, was the only specialist batter to reach double figures while number 10 Shakera Selman made 12 not out, to be the only other player to pass ten.

Seamer Renuka Singh wrecked the innings, claiming four for 10 from four stingy overs.

Rather than writing an article, crediting these women to go compete against the Top 7 teams in the world and beating one of them in Pakistan, this is how their story is written at the end of their CG run....tasteless and shameful!

Bim get too above themselves

That's a pretty classless comment, my friend. You do realise that this is the Commonwealth Games? There is no provision for a WI team to compete. You could just as readily say that Guyana get above themselves every time they send a track athlete to the Olympics knowing full well they wont make it out the first round.

By the way India sends track athletes to the Olympics and they fare far worse that the Bajan cricketers did at these games. And on a little history note, last time there was a men's cricket tournament at the Commonwealth Games (199cool the Barbados men won two of their 3 games in the 4 team for group format, finishing 2nd behind SA in their group and beating Bangladesh and Ireland. Two other teams, Antigua and Jamaica also competed in other groups

I'll agree with Logic that the above was on the low side.

You could've at least attributed the loss to the BIM women's wearing of the Jamaican colors.
