KINGSTON – West Indies Women swept to a comprehensive 89-run win over New Zealand Women in the second of three One-Day Internationals (ODI) at Sabina Park yesterday.
Barbadian teenager Shaquana Quintyne played crucial roles with bat and ball to ensure West Indies levelled the series, following their dramatic one-run loss to New Zealand in the first ODI on Sunday.
The 17-year-old Quintyne topscored with 29 off 58 balls as the Windies recovered from 95 for eight to post 148 and picked up two wickets for nine runs to help bowl out the visitors for 59 runs.
She featured in an important stand of 43 for the ninth wicket with Shakera Selman, who also played well to make 22 in her 50th ODI for the West Indies.
West Indies Women, who won the toss and batted, were given a decent start on a first-wicket stand between Kyshona Knight and Natasha McLean that produced a half-century in 77 balls.
Knight scored 22 and McLean 21.
When New Zealand batted only one player, Katie Perkins, who scored 18, was able to get into double digits as the West Indian bowlers took control.
Stafanie Taylor was the top wicket-taker with 3-10 while Shanel Daley took two for 14.
Deandra Dottin was also responsible for two run-outs.
The decider in the three-match series will be played tomorrow, also at Sabina Park.
Scores: West Indies Women 148 all out (Shaquana Quintyne 29, Kyshona Knight 22, Natasha McLean 21). New Zealand Women 59 all out (Stafanie Taylor 3-10, Shaquana Quintyne 2-9, Shanel Daley 2-14). (CMC)
