Dottin leads WI Women to victory
JOHANNESBURG – Deandra Dottin dominated a pulsating Super Over to hand West Indies Women victory after a topsy-turvy run chase ended in a dramatic tie in the second One-day International against South Africa Women yesterday.
In pursuit of a meagre 161 in a contest reduced to 41 overs a side due to rain, the Windies Women appeared all but beaten after slumping to 83 for six in the 21st over at the Wanderers, despite Dottin’s top score of 37.
Chedean Nation made 34 and anchored a 54-run, seventh wicket stand with Player-of-the-Match Chinelle Henry that hauled West Indies Women back into the contest and put them back on course for what appeared a straightforward win.
The pendulum swung yet again when Henry fell for 26 and Shamilia Connell for a duck off successive deliveries at the start of the 32nd over, but Nation put on 21 for the ninth wicket with Shakera Selman to get the Windies Women within three runs of their target before perishing. (CMC)
