Dottin stars in losing effort for WI

VIJAYAWADA – Deandra Dottin’s 17th One-Day International half-century was in vain as West Indies women slumped to their second straight loss of the three-match series against India women with a five-wicket defeat yesterday.

Once again, the Caribbean side failed to mount a serious challenge when they batted, posting an inadequate 153 for seven off their 50 overs, and the hosts had little trouble overhauling the target with 12 overs to spare at the Mulapadu Cricket Stadium.

With the defeat, West Indies women remained agonisingly shy of automatic qualification for next year’s 50-overs ICC World Cup in England, as they still require another two points to cross that line.

Sent in, West Indies women were struggling at 58 for four in the 26th over before Dottin stroked a fluent 61 to pull them out of trouble. (CMC)
