Yasmine St Ange, the captain of the national women’s team, is currently studying at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill. There, she is a member of the UWI Cave Hill Blackbirds, a team initiated by Saint Lucia’s Eugena Gregg, a former West Indies player. This season, the Blackbirds played the Barbados Cricket Association Domestic League undefeated.
But in the opening match of the triangular Goodwill Women’s Twenty20 Tournament, Blackbirds went down to the BCA Women’s XI. Playing at the 3W’s Ovals, the BCA X1 scored 130/5 off 20 overs. Saint Lucia’s St Ange was luckless, bowling four overs and conceding 23 runs. She made nine not out as Blackbirds were held to 92/8.
On Sunday, though, it was back to winning ways for the Blackbirds, beating England’s University of Edinburgh in the 50-over competition, and their Saint Lucian import was in the thick of things. St Ange bowled five overs and took a remarkable haul of six wickets, giving up just nine runs. In her third over, she took the tournament’s first hat trick.
