Windies crush New Zealand again

BASSETERRE – Seamer Shakera Selman inspired West Indies Women to an eight-wicket crushing of New Zealand Women, as they took a winning 3-0 lead in the four-match One-Day International series yesterday.

Opting to bat first, the visitors were bundled out for 69 off 32.2 overs, with Player Of The Match Selman of Barbados picking up five for 15 and off-spinner Anisa Mohammed claiming three for 11 at Warner Park.

Wicketkeeper Rachel Priest topscored with 19, Maddie Green got 14 and captain Suzie Bates scored 13, but they were the only three players in double figures as Selman and Mohammed combined to wreck the innings.

In reply, West Indies cruised to their target off 17.2 overs, with Stafanie Taylor finishing unbeaten on 23 and Deandra Dottin scoring 21 not out.

The pair put on 38 for the third wicket to secure the win after openers Kycia Knight (13) and Natasha McLean (ten) fell cheaply. 

Hoping to haul themselves back into the series following defeats in the two previous matches, New Zealand were routed early by Selman, crashing to 38 for six and never recovering. (WICB)
