News Americas, Bridgetown, Barbados, Mon. Aug. 15, 2011: Jamaican women may be known as Queens of the dancehall, but on Sunday, the girls from Jamaica proved they were also queens of cricket.

The Jamaican women’s cricket squad was crowned the queens of West Indies cricket when they beat Trinidad and Tobago by 30 runs to win the WICB Women’s League trophy.

The Jamaicans made 136 and defended the score as T&T were bowled out for 106 at the historic Kensington Oval. It was a superb triumph and Jamaica has now won the WICB men’s four-day, the WICB Under-19 three-day and the WICB Under-15 titles.

Speaking after the match, Jamaica captain Stafanie Taylor said it was a “great feeling” to take the trophy back to her homeland.

The world-rated all-rounder starred in the match with a top score of 45 and grabbed two wickets. Shanel Daley also played an important part in the match with 28 runs and two wickets.

Trinidad & Tobago, who had not lost a match in two seasons, were chasing their third consecutive women’s title, but came up short in the most important match of this tournament.
