WI women return home empty handed
AHMEDABAD—West Indies Women will return from their tour of India empty-handed, after another terminal batting decline condemned them to a 15-run defeat in the third and final Twenty20 International against India yesterday. Stacy-Ann King hit the top score of 27, but no other WI women’s batter passed 20, as they were restricted to 113 for nine in their allocation of 20 overs, after they were set 129 for victory at the Sardar Patel Stadium.
The result meant that the visitors lost the three-match series 1-2, after losing the first T20I by six wickets, and winning the second match by three runs, following a 2-3 loss in the preceding One-day International series. Shemaine Campbelle had collected three wickets for 20 runs from three overs, as India, choosing to bat, reached 128 for five in their 20 overs built upon Mithali Raj’s unbeaten 51 from 46 balls.
WI Women’s chase started disastrously, when Juliana Nero was run out for a duck from the second ball.
Wickets fell at regular intervals, and the visitors soon found themselves wobbling on 46 for five in the ninth over. Shanel Daley joined King, and they steadied the innings with a stand of 40 for the sixth wicket, but the WI Women’s hopes of reaching the target soon fizzled, when their last five wickets fell for 27 runs in the space of 34 deliveries. WI Women were again undermined by leg-spinner Priyanka Roy. She collected three for 17 from four overs, and Soniya Dabir supported with two for ten from three overs.
