WI WOMEN SUFFER
Women saved their worst perfor-
mance for the final One-Day Inter-
national, as they went under by
205 runs to suffer the ignominy of
another whitewash on New Zea-
land soil yesterday.
Asked to chase an improbable
target of 311 at Hagley Oval, the
Caribbean side were rolled over
without so much as a whimper for
a paltry 105, to suffer their third
straight defeat in the series.
Captain Stafanie Taylor top-
scored with 26 but was the only
one to pass 20 as her side’s batting
declined badly to record their sec-
ond lowest ODI total in two years.
On their last tour here four
years ago, Windies Women were
also swept 3-0 in a the one-day
series, before going on to lose the
five-match Twenty20 series 4-0.
Opting to field first, West Indies
Women watched as the White
Ferns piled up an imposing 310 for
five off their 50 overs.
Suzie Bates extended her superb
000 runs in ODIs, Sophie Devine
weighed in with 73 and Amy Sat-
Windies struck early when Lau-
ren Down was run out for three in
the fifth over with the score on 16
but that was their last bright spot
as the hosts batsmen dominated.
First, Bates and Satterthwaite
came together to post 151 for the
second wicket, a stand which put
the advantage firmly in New Zea-
Bates, with scores of 44 and 101
not out in the two previous ODIs,
stroked six fours in a 97-ball in-
nings while Satterthwaite faced 81
balls and also struck six fours.
Both fell in the space of 12 deliv-
eries with just six runs added but
Devine anchored a 58-run, fourth
wicket stand with Katey Martin
(24) before adding a further 63
with Anna Peterson (27 not out)
in an unbroken sixth wicket part-
nership, to give the innings strong
Devine counted six fours in a
busy 58-ball stay at the crease.
West Indies Women’s run chase
was in crisis from as early as the
third over when Kycia Knight was
run out without scoring, with
eight runs on the board.
Hayley Matthews followed for 11
in the seventh over at 21 for two
but the visitors took hope in two
small partnerships anchored by
Taylor and then Deandra Dottin
Taylor, with half-centuries in
her two previous innings, added
21 for the third wicket with Dot-
tin, who in turn put on 23 for the
fourth wicket with Kyshona Knight
Dottin’s demise in the 18th over,
however, saw the last seven wick-
ets tumble spectacularly for 40
Devine completed a solid all-
round outing with three for 24
while fellow seamer Holly Huddle-
ston picked up two for 19.
West Indies face the hosts in the
first T20 International of the five-
match series starting Wednesday
in Tauranga. (CMC)
