THE THREE-MATCH T20 cricket series between West Indies Women and New Zealand will be decided on Saturday.

Today at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex, West Indies won by seven wickets to even the series 1-1. They reached 102 for three in reply to New Zealand’s 101 for five off 20 overs.

Dottin again came to the rescue when Merissa Aguilleira’s side dipped to 44 for three in the eighth over.

She finished with the top score of 40 not out and shared 58 – unbroken – with Shemaine Campbelle (29) for the fourth wicket, to walk the Windies Women over the finish line.

Britney Cooper scored 13.

Saturday’s match starts at 2 p.m.
