VIJAYAWADA – West Indies Women were left sweating on automatic qualification for next year’s ICC 50-overs World Cup in England, after crashing to a 15-run defeat to India Women in their must-win final one-day international of the three-match series here yesterday.

Set 200 for victory at the Mulapadu Cricket Stadium, the Caribbean girls were dismissed for 184 at the start of the final over, to concede the series 3-0 and further endanger their chances of an automatic berth at the ODI showpiece.

They appeared on course at 166 for four in the 45th over but shockingly lost their last six wickets for just 18 runs to fall apart down the stretch.

Kycia Knight struck form with a top score of 55 off 94 balls with five fours and teenaged opener Hayley Matthews stroked a breezy 44 from 53 deliveries with nine fours. (CMC)
