WI Women let it slip
South Africa Women are tied on six points with Windies Women in the ICC One Day International Championship after defeating the home side by 100 runs after the first One Day International in the Sandals International home series yesterday.
A number of dropped catches by the Windies enabled the Proteas to 201 for nine in their 50 overs to which the home team replied with 161 all out in 46 overs in the face of superb fielding by the visitors.
The day started well for the Windies after winning the toss and inserting South Africa who lost opener Lizelle Lee for a duck. The innings was revived in a second-wicket stand of 99 between 22-year-old Player of the Match Sune Luus and 19-year-old Laura Wolvaardt. Luus’ 58 came from 86 balls with five boundaries while Wolvaardt’s 45 contained three fours from 83 deliveries.
West Indies captain Stefanie Taylor tried a number of bowlers to break the Luus-Wolvaardt stand but it is when she came into the attack seventh change that she broke the stand with both wickets. (HE)
