West Indies batsman Deandra Dottin is stumped off the first ball of the super over during the third Twenty20
International against New Zealand Women yesterday at the Arnos Vale Sports Complex. Dottin earlier
topscored a half-century (54) but Windes lost in a super over. Dottin was named player of the series, though.
BRIDGETOWN---Openers Kyle Corbin
and Shayne Moseley hit centuries as
a Barbados XI dominated a two-day
practice match against a West Indies
A side at the 3Ws Oval.
After being sent in, Barbados amassed
330 for one declared off 83 overs to
which West Indies A responded with
195 for six off 64 overs.
Corbin, who has been in fine form
for Sagicor Life UWI in the BCA Elite
division championship with 561 runs
(ave: 56.10) including two centuries---
one of them a double---made 117. He
batted for 279 minutes, faced 200 balls
and struck eight fours and five sixes.
Left-hander Moseley, who represents
CounterPoint Wanderers, scored 132
retired (not out) in 282 minutes off 199
balls with 15 fours and four sixes.
The pair added 272 in 63.4 overs.
Moseley, a member of the champion
Barbados Under-19 three-day team
player in 2012, first reached his century
in 218 minutes off 151 balls with 12 fours
and three sixes in the 50th over, while
Corbin, a first-class player for Combined
Campuses & Colleges and a former Bar-
bados and West Indies Under-19 rep-
resentative, got to his hundred in 257
minutes off 185 deliveries, striking eight
fours and three sixes, in the 58th over.
The Hope brothers, Kyle and Shai,
who both play for ESA Field Pickwick,
were unbeaten on 35 and 22 respective-
ly. When bad light ended play on the
opening day, Wednesday, Barbados were
317 for one off 76 overs with Shai Hope
on 16 and Kyle Hope, 28.
West Indies A made a poor start,
losing Kraigg Brathwaite (nine), Assad
Fudadin (one) and Kirk Edwards
(nought)---all with Test experience---as
they wobbled to 11 for three.
Andre Fletcher topscored with 80 at
No 4. He batted for 211 minutes, received
171 balls and hit four fours and five sixes.
Sunil Ambris contributed 33, skipper
Carlos Brathwaite 32 and Marlon Barclay,
22 not out.
Dawayne Sealy, the UWI fast bowling
all-rounder, took four for 44 off 13 overs.
His scalps were Kraigg Brathwaite,
Edwards, Fletcher and Ambris---all of
whom are in the 14-man West Indies
A squad named today for a tour of Sri
Lanka starting next month.
Fudadin fell to national Under-19 left-
arm pacer Tarik Shorey and was given
chance to bat twice, while Carlos Brath-
waite was dismissed by left-arm spinner
Jomel Warrican, who is currently the
top bowler in the Elite division cham-
pionship with 42 scalps for virtual new
winners ICBL Empire.
KINGSTOWN---A splendid half-
century from Player-of-the-
Series Deandra Dottin was not
enough as West Indies Women
went down to New Zealand
Women via a tense Super Over,
to concede their three-match
Twenty20 International series in
St Vincent yesterday.
Set 112 for victory at Arnos Vale,
West Indies recovered from a posi-
tion of 21 for three in the fifth over
to tie the scores at the end of the
regular innings, thanks mainly to
Dottin s superbly controlled top
score of 54.
However, Dottin had nothing
left in the Super Over and fell to
the first ball as West Indies manage
to scrape five runs. New Zealand
then needed only four deliveries
to achieve their target, with captain
Suzie Bates sealing victory with a
The visitors took the series 2-
1 following their 4-0 thrashing in
the preceding One-Day Interna-
tional series. New Zealand, how-
ever, had seemed en route to an
easy win until Dottin turned the
game on its head.
Seamers Amy Satterthwaite,
with four for 24 and Hayley Jensen,
with three for 16, rocked the
Windies Women and they lost
wickets in a steady stream.
Dottin, however, held firm facing
46 balls and striking three fours
and three sixes in a responsible
knock that kept her side s hopes
At 21 for three, Dottin combined
with Shemaine Campbelle (13) in
a fourth-wicket stand of 46. The
partnership seemed to be hauling
West Indies back into the contest
but Campbelle s dismissal triggered
another slide which saw three
wickets tumble for eight runs in
the space of 17 balls.
Dottin then squeezed out 15 for
the seventh wicket with Shanel
Daley (5) and another 18 for the
eighth wicket with Anisa
Mohammed (five not out), which
left West Indies needing 13 to win
from the last over bowled by Sat-
Mohammed got a single from
the first ball and Dottin a couple
from the second before launching
the bowler over the ropes at deep
extra cover, to bring the Windies
closer to victory and also raise her
However, she perished to a catch
at extra cover off the next ball and
Tremayne Smartt scrambled a sin-
gle off the fifth, to leave the
Windies Women needing three of
the last ball.
Mohammed then swung to extra
cover and completed two runs to
ensure the Super Over.
Earlier, New Zealand were held
to 111 for four, with Katie Perkins
top-scoring with 31 not out off 20
balls and Sophie Devine getting
30 from 47 deliveries.

Dottin shines again but
Windies lose in Super Over
A confident West Indies cricket
team left the Caribbean yesterday
bound for India to compete against
that country in series of five one
day internationals, a Twenty20 and
three Test matches.
Denesh Ramdin, Lendl Simmons,
Kieron Pollard, Marlon Samuels,
Dwayne Smith, Kemar Roach,
Jerome Taylor and Darren Sammy
left and will meet up with skipper
Dwayne Bravo, Jason Holder, Ravi
Rampaul and Sunil Narine, who is
already in India because of the ongo-
ing Champions League T20 tour-
Skipper Bravo was a confident
man, saying: "We did well against
Bangladesh in the Caribbean and
although they are not as touch as
the Indians, three wins have given
us confidence moving forward.
"Traditionally the West Indies
have done well in India and we want
to continue in that in this series.
"We have as strong a team that
we can assemble at this point except
for opener Chris Gayle and we will
be playing our hearts out, I can
"A number of our players have
done well in India for their clubs in
the Indian Premier League and our
players feel at home in these con-
With the World Cup just under
five months away, the West Indies
will be playing with that in mind
and will be looking at different com-
binations in a bid to have the best
team for the marquee event. The
series in India begins in earnest on
October 3 with a clash against India
A in Mumbai. Two days later they
play another game, also against India
A, before moving to the Southern
Western part of the country for the
first ODI in Kochi on October 8.
Bravo was also happy with the
return of the seasoned Marlon
Samuels and Jerome Taylor.
"Samuels is always a great option
in these parts. He has always done
well here and he is expected to carry
on with the great form he had in
the Caribbean Premier League. It is
good to see him back in the mix and
he is expected to be a crucial part
of our set up as we move towards
the World Cup."
The last ODI series that the West
Indies played in India was last year
and that series ended in a 2-1 win
for the home team.
West Indies squad: Dwayne
Bravo (capt), Leon Johnson, Lendl
Simmons, Darren Bravo, Marlon
Samuels, Dwayne Smith, Denesh
Ramdin, Keiron Pollard, Jason Holder,
Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Jerome
Taylor, Sunil Narine, Darren Sammy
and Ravi Rampaul.
