WI women lift ICC title
POTCHEFSTROOM, South Africa – West Indies produced two clinical back-to-back performances to capture the ICC Women’s Twenty20 Challenge title here today.
Playing in the final at North-West University Ground, they trounced Sri Lanka by eight wickets in a low-scoring affair to win the tournament.
Chasing 84 for victory, prolific teenager Deandra Dottin stroked 39 from 22 balls to propel her side to 85 for two off 10.4 overs.
West Indies had earlier in the day scored a comprehensive victory over the Netherlands by 99 runs, behind Stacy-Ann King’s brilliant 81 from 47 balls.
They posted 191 for four with Tremayne Smart getting 62 from 42 balls before bundling the Dutch side out for 92, with wily off-spinner Anisa Mohammed taking two for 11. (CMC)
