The West Indies women lost by nine wickets late last night as New Zealand cruised to an easy victory in the first One-Day International in Lincoln.
Led by captain Suzie Bates who scored 95 not out off 91 balls (including 14 fours), New Zealand romped to 184 for one in 29.3 overs. Sara McGlashan was also unbeaten on 60, joining Bates in a 142-run partnership after Sam Curtis was caught by wicketkeeper Merissa Aguillera off Tremayne Smartt.
In contrast, West Indies limped to 181 for eight in their 50 overs. Several of them got starts, including Stafanie Taylor who scored 36 and Kycia Knight with 30, but they failed to carry on.
