Quintyne spins Windies Women to 36-run win
SYLHET—West Indies Women swept aside host Bangladesh by 36 runs to win their second match in the ICC T20 World Cup at Sylhet Stadium, Bangladesh, yesterday.
The 18-year old leg break bowler, Shaquana Quintyne, grabbed three wickets to inflict a top order submission that severely restricted the host who imploded for 79, on the hunt for 116 set by West Indies.
Quintyne returned impressive figures of three wickets for five runs from three overs which included a maiden and received support from Tremayne Smartt and Anisa Mohammed who picked up two for nine and two for 22 respectively.
The teenager, who also scored 11 and was voted player-of-the-match, knocked back the stumps of two frontline batsmen- opener Ayasha Rahman for 10 and Fargana Hogue for 2-to leave Bangladesh scrambling for momentum.
But middle order batsman Rumana Ahmed top scored with 26 to lead a fightback that injected a measure of stability into Bangladesh’s innings.
In the process, Ahmed added 28 for the 5th wicket with Nuzhat Tasnia before another batting collapse ensued and the match swung decisively in favour of the visitors.
In the space of four balls Tasnia, who scored 6, was bowled by Anisa Mohammed while Quintyne ended the reign of Ahmed who was caught by Smartt.
The Caribbean women asserted themselves ruthlessly by removing the last four wickets for just five runs to secure a comfortable win with 15 balls remaining.
Earlier, West Indies who had won the toss and elected to bat, were jolted by early strikes from Salma Khatun and Fahima Khatun.
Salma claimed opener Kycia Knight lbw off the second ball of the innings for a duck while Fahima removed the stumps of Shaquana Quintyne for 11 and trapped Kyshona Knight lbw also for 11, as the West Indies plummeted to 33 for three.
However the aggressive Deandra Dottin teamed up with King to steer the innings back on course as the Caribbean women clawed their way back into the match.
Dottin, who top scored with 34 which featured three fours and a six, compiled 40 runs for the fifth wicket with King who hit two fours and a six to score 20.
Down the order Mohammed also contributed a well played 15 before she was run out.
Khadija Tul Kubra topped the bowling for Bangladesh with three for 24 including the prized scalp of Dottin who was caught. (CMC)
