Windies Women slump to new low
LEICESTER---West Indies Women were
bundled out for their second lowest-ev-
er total in One-Day Internationals as
their already troubled World Cup cam-
paign took a turn for the worst with a
demoralising 10-wicket defeat to South
Africa Women yesterday.
Asked to bat first at Grace Road, the Win-
dies capitulated to 48 all out off just 25.2
overs---the sixth lowest total in a Women's
World Cup and the lowest in 20 years.
Chedean Nation, batting at number four,
was the only player to reach double figures
with 26 as the Caribbean side's long bat-
ting line-up inexplicably fell apart in ideal
Leg-spinner Dane van Niekerk
(4-0) and new ball seamer Mari-
zanne Kapp (4-14) wrecked the
innings with four wickets apiece
while fast bowler Shabnim Ismail
ended with two for 16.
In reply, Lizelle Lee stroked a
cameo unbeaten 29 from just 16
balls as South Africa coasted to
their target off a mere 38 deliveries,
to post their second win and remain
unbeaten from their three matches.
In contrast, West Indies have
now lost all three games and are
winless on tour after also losing all five of
their warm-up fixtures.
The defeat was their
second to the Proteas in
10 days following a similar
meltdown in their official
warm-up in Oakham when
they were knocked over for
63.Any hopes of making
amends for that per-
formance were quickly
dashed as Kapp and Ismail
produced a telling burst
with the new ball to rip the
heart out of the West Indies
batting and leave the innings in strife at 16
for five in the eighth over.
West Indies Women's
captain, Stafanie Taylor.
Hayley Matthews, the most consistent Windies
batsman so far, perished for four in the third over
when she played back to one from Ismail that nipped
back off the seam and was lbw with just four runs
on the board.
Captain Stafanie Taylor lasted just 10 balls for her
four before spectacularly losing her off-stump in the
fifth over to one from Ismail that also came back.
Kapp then turned the game on its head with three
wickets in her fourth over, the eighth of the innings,
when she sent back debutant opener Reniece Boyce
(4), Kyshona Knight (0) and Deandra Dottin (0) in
The right-handed Boyce chipped a return catch
to Kapp off the first ball over the over before Knight
missed a straightish one on leg-stump and was lbw
Dottin then played all around a full length delivery,
the fifth of the over, and had her leg-stump uprooted.
At this stage, West Indies were staring at an historic
low but Nation and former skipper Merissa Aguilleira
put on 22 for the sixth wicket to steer their side clear
of that unwanted record.
The partnership ended in the 20th over when Agu-
illeira missed an ill-advised sweep at van Niekerk and
was bowled leg-stump and new batsman Shanel Daley
followed without scoring in the leg-spinner's next
over, top-edging a sweep to short backward square.
Tottering on 42 for seven, there was no resistance
from the Windies tail as Afy Fletcher was trapped
on her crease and bowled by Kapp without scoring,
Nation gifted her wicket by clipping a simple catch
to short mid-wicket off van Niekerk before debutant
Qiana Joseph was trapped lbw to van Niekerk also
without bothering the scorers.
West Indies will take on New Zealand on Thursday
