St. Augustine


ST. AUGUSTINE, Trinidad and Tobago.  June 13, 2020 – The UWI Women’s Cricket Club (UWI WCC) will compete in the Premiership Division in 2021 after securing a top-two finish in the 30-over format of the Trinidad & Tobago Women’s Cricket Association’s Championship Division this year.

The UWI WCC, led by Talia Baksh in the 30-over format, remained unbeaten but finished in 2nd place after playing one round of cricket less than the eventual winner Tamana United, when the season ended prematurely due to the covid-19 pandemic.

In the T20 competition, The UWI WCC also finished in 2nd place behind Tamana United, having lost one game early in the shortened season. The team was managed by Nadra Dwarika-Baptiste for this season.

The UWI WCC is made up of students, staff, alumni and friends of The UWI. It operates under the purview of The Academy of Sport at the St. Augustine campus and has been on the rise since 2018, capturing the Super Sixes, T10 and T20 titles. This will be the first time since the club’s inception in 2013 that The UWI ladies, now coached by former West Indies’ captain Stephanie Power, will compete at this level.
