KINGSTON---Captain Stafanie Taylor led from
the front, turning in a solid allround perform-
ance, as the West Indies Women defeated Eng-
land Women by 42 runs in the fourth One-Day
International of the five-match series at Sabina
The result levelled the series at 2-2.
After winning the toss and electing to bat,
West Indies skipper Stafanie Taylor hit 85 in her
team's total of 223 for six. Taylor was the mainstay
of the innings. She returned to take 3-22 as the
England Women were dismissed for 181 in 44.2
Taylor arrived at the crease after West Indies
Women lost Hayley Mathews (8) with just 12 runs
on the board.
She shared an enterprising second wicket part-
nership of 69 with Shaquana Quintyre (41) before
the latter's 75-ball innings ended when she tried
to hit England captain Heather Knight over the
top and was caught. She struck one six and two
Taylor and Deandra Dottin added another 36
before Dottin's 18-ball knock ended in a run out,
to leave the West Indies 117-3.
Taylor then found an able partner in Marissa
Aguilliera (32) and the pair added 45 for the fourth
wicket with Aguilliera taking the attack to the
English bowlers, hitting four boundaries in her
Taylor lost Britney Cooper (9) at 193 before
becoming the last West Indies wicket to fall with
the score on 209. She faced 129 balls and struck
two sixes and six fours in her innings.
Chasing 224 to win and take an unassailable
3-1 lead, England were coasting at 133 for one,
with openers Lauren Winfield (51) and Tammy
Beaumont (57) having hit half-centuries.
But the tourists lost nine wickets for 47 runs
as they were bowled out for 181 to leave the series
England Women got a solid start from their
openers, Tammy Beaumont (57) and Lauren Win-
field (51) with the pair adding 95 for the first
wicket to put their team in command.
However, they were undermined by some atro-
cious running between the wickets which saw
five run outs.
Winfield's second successive fifty helped Eng-
land off to the perfect start but her run out,
having been sent back by Heather Knight, started
Natalie Sciver was caught at midwicket for
three before Danni Wyatt was run out without
scoring following a mix up.
Knight was involved in two more run outs,
Georgia Elwiss and Katherine Brunt both returned
to the pavilion cheaply, before England's captain
was out for 36 when Taylor took a terrific return
catch---her third wicket.
That left England 165 for eight and---after 16
more runs were added---the innings fittingly ended
with some fine work from Taylor and another
run out as Laura Marsh fell to the Windies cap-
tain's direct hit. (CMC)
West Indies leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo
speaking at the end of the fourth day of the first
Test match at Dubai International Cricket Sta-
dium said that a win for the West Indies in this
match would turn things around for them on
The 30-year-old had the remarkable figures of
8-49 to bowl out Pakistan for 123 in the second
innings and give the West Indies a chance of a
come-from-behind victory in their first pink ball
Test match under lights.
Bishoo recorded career-best figures to end the
match with 10-174. The 8-49 was his third five-
wicket haul, beating his previous best of 6-80
against Australia in Dominica in June, 2015.
He now has the best bowling figures in the
United Arab Emirates, and the fifth best in West
Indies Test history.
West Indies will enter the final day on 95-2 ---
the not out batsmen are Darren Bravo (26) and
Marlon Samuels (4). The visitors need another 251
runs for victory with eight wickets in hand.
According to the Guyanese : "It was good bowl-
ing, not only by me but the other two guys, who
got the other two wickets. We have set up ourselves
very good in this game now and we have a very
good chance of going on to win."
Bishoo said that looking at clips of his bowling,
did the trick for him: "I was thinking during the
last evening what I was going to do in terms of
bowling and I looked at some clips of my bowling.
I was bowling fourth or fifth stump and they were
cutting me for singles in the first innings, so I
decided to bowl straighter on the stumps."
Bishoo bowled four of the eight batsmen, during
his brilliant spell. "I am delighted that I got 8/49,
I don't have words to explain that, but happier
that we have put ourselves in a good position to
win the Test match. As I said in a previous interview,
the fourth and fifth day the ball will spin more
and we are seeing that."
He said for the Pakistanis to be successful on
the final day they would have to use the right lines:
"The pitch is not going to change much so the
bowlers have to put the ball in the right areas and
use the rough as well."
Asked whether a win here could change the
mindset of a struggling team, he said: "Everybody
is up for it, there is a boost now, the T20s and
ODIs are over and we as the Test team can give
ourselves a good chance for this series by winning
this match. We need to go and play the best cricket
we can play, go out there and play each ball and
get big partnerships." (CMC)
Out-of-favour national forward
Willis Plaza scored a pair of goals
as San Juan Jabloteh spoiled the
eagerly awaited debut of Digicel
T&T Pro League foootball to the
Morvant Caledonia United com-
munity with a 4-2 win at the Mor-
vant recreation ground, Park Street,
With perhaps the biggest crowd
for a local Pro League match on
hand, and numbering in the thou-
sands, Plaza who last played for the
national team on a tour of Asia earlier
this year, sounded a reminder to Soca
Warriors coach Stephen Hart, scoring
as early as the second minute for
Three minutes before the half-
time whistle, Jamaican Adrian Reid
doubled Jabloteh's tally and on the
stroke of half-time, things got worse
for Morvant Caledonia when Tyrone
Charles banged in Jabloteh's third
for a 3-0 lead.
However, just before the break,
long serving club member, Kareem
Joseph pulled a goal back for Morvant
Caledonia, when he converted a
penalty for his team to trail 3-1.
On the resumption, Jabloteh con-
tinued to enjoy the better of the
exchanges and on the hour mark,
Plaza, 29, doubled his tally and made
it 4-1 before Akim Armstrong,
another Morvant Caledonia stalwart
got his team a second in the 73rd.
Despite being urged on by the
crowd, the margin proved too much
for the host to claw back, as Jabloteh
ran out deserved winners to carry
its points tally to six from three
matches, three adrift of two-time
defending champions Central FC
while Morvant/Caledonia stayed in
a four-way tie with St Ann's Rangers,
Police FC and W Connection on four
Tomorrow, the third round will
conclude at the Ato Boldon Stadium,
Couva, with a double-header from
6 pm. In the opener, Ma Pau Stars
come up against St Ann's Rangers
while Pt Fortin Civic and Police Fc
square off from 8 pm.
