New Zealand win in Super Over


Share post:

KINGSTOWN, St Vincent – West Indies Women suffered the agony of a “Super Over” defeat, following an impressive, eighth Twenty20 International half-century from Deandra Dottin that earned them a tie against New Zealand Women here today.

Dottin revived the Windies Women’s chances with 54 from 46 balls, after they stumbled chasing 112 for victory from their allocation of 20 overs in the deciding, third and final match of this series at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex

Before a vocal crowd of close to 1 500, Dottin smashed three fours and three sixes to take the hosts within four runs of victory before she was caught at extra cover with two balls remaining in regulation play, becoming the last of Amy Satterthwaite’s three wickets that undermined the Windies Women.

Anisa Mohammed put the home team level, when she scooped Satterthwaite over extra cover for two off the last ball in regulation play, forcing the “Super Over”.

Dottin was stumped for a first-ball duck, charging Morna Nielsen in the extra play, leaving Hayley Matthews and Shemaine Campbelle to gather five from the remaining deliveries before the latter was bowled from the last ball.

Shanel Daley was entrusted with the ball for the Windies Women, but the White Ferns pair of Suzie Bates, the captain, and Sophie Devine, the vice-captain, kept their heads to take the visitors over the finish line.

A half volley outside outside off-stump from Daley was carted over extra cover by Bates to formalise the result, giving the New Zealanders a 2-1 edge in the three-match series. (PR/SAT)
