The Cricket West Indies brought up a T10 style of exhibition games for the Women ahead of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) playoffs. Two teams named NLCB Revellers and Courts Gladiators were announced to play two games. The first game of the NLCB Challenge was played ahead of the 2nd Qualifier at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba while the 2nd game on Saturday afternoon prior to the final.

The Courts Gladiators, led by Afy Fletcher batted first on Thursday and finished on 74/2 in the 10 overs. Hayley Matthews scored an unbeaten 46 from 33 balls for the Gladiators. In reply, the NLCB Revellers chased down the target with four balls to spare losing only two wickets. Their skipper Stafanie Taylor scored 36 off only 18 balls to ease down the chase.
