VIJAYAWADA – A poor batting performance saw West Indies women crash to a disappointing six-wicket defeat to India in the opening One-Day International of the three-match series yesterday.

Opting to bat first, the Caribbean side’s batting woes continued from the recent series against England Women, as they slumped to 131 all out off 42.4 overs at the Mulapadu Cricket Ground.

Former captain Merissa Aguilleira topscored with an unbeaten 42 off 77 deliveries but was one of only three batsmen in double figures, with teenage opener Hayley Matthews getting 24 and captain Stafanie Taylor, 19.

The damage was done by left-arm spinners Rajeshwari Gayakwad, who finished with four for 21, and Ekta Bisht, three for 14. (CMC)
