BRIDGETOWN – LIFTED BY a responsible half-century from Deandra Dottin and a five-wicket haul by off-spinner Anisa Mohammed, the West Indies women cricketers easily defeated New Zealand by 23 runs in their Tri-Nation Twenty20 series opening match at Kensington Oval on Monday night.
Dottin smashed three fours and two sixes in a knock of 52 off 50 balls to ensure the West Indies women reached 104 for six in their 20 overs.
She shared a fourth wicket stand of 51 runs with Kyshona Knight, who made a patient 20 off 39 balls after the West Indies were in early trouble at 18 for three.
Leg-spinner Erin Bermingham (two for 12) and left-arm seamer Sian Ruck (two for 16) were New Zealand’s most successful bowlers.
In reply, New Zealand lost two of their first three wickets by the run out route, including captain Suzie Bates, and never fully recovered from a position of 18 for three to be all out for 81 in 19 overs.
Mohammed ended with the fantastic figures of five for 12 in her 50th T20 match, just short of her career best five for 10.
Amy Satterthwaite (31 of 43 balls) and wicket-keeper Rachel Priest (22 off 20 balls ) were the only batters to reach double figures for the White Ferns, sharing a 40-run fifth-wicket partnership. (EZS)
