This allowed openers King and Kirby to achieve a solid start of 68 from their aggressive brand of cricket, in the powerplay overs.The Guyanese soon struck a body blow when Thompson dismissed Kirby. The visitors were further reduced to 90-3 at the halfway stage when they lost Reniece Boyce (6), off the bowling of Smartt and Shania Abdool was run-out for two from a direct hit by Gajnabi.With the required run-rate within reach, the right-handed King was joined by Cooper, who also played a solid knock, but the contest was as good as over, as the pair kept up the pressure on their opponents.They stitched together a 58-run partnership to steer their team within nine runs of the victory target.Meanwhile, Barbados easily overpowered their Leeward Islands counterparts by 99 runs in the first encounter.Player-of-the-match Deandra Dottin made 62 off 23 balls, counting ten boundaries and three sixes; Hayley Matthews, 40 off 23 balls, with eight boundaries and a six while Charlene Taitt made 35 from only 25 deliveries to propel the Barbadians to 206-6.
