Windies women beat S/Africa by eight wickets

ROSEAU, Dominica, CMC – World class all-rounder Stafanie Taylor proved her worth in gold to fire West Indies Women to an all important eight-wicket win over South Africa Women and keep the hosts alive in the five-match one-day series here  yesterday.

Playing at Windsor Park, the 21-year-old Jamaican snatched four for 22 with her off-spin to help limit South Africa to 120 all out off 47.1 overs, and then returned to stroke a superb 71 to guide West Indies to their target off 29.2 overs.

The victory was a crucial one for West Indies who had lost the doubleheader in St Kitts earlier in the week and needed a positive result to avoid losing the series with two matches to spare.

Sent in to bat, South Africa were never up to the task and only captain Mignon de Preez with 20 showed any enterprise.

Taylor was supported by teenaged leg-spinner Shaquana Quintyne who bowled brilliantly to finish four for 14.

Left-arm seamer Shanel Daley sent back opener Trisha Chetty early, bowled for three in the fourth over with the score on five but du Preez and Shandre Fritz (15) put on 36 for the second wicket to restore order to the innings.
