Dottin shines again as West Indies cruise to 2-0 series lead

BASSETERRE, St Kitts, CMC – Deandra Dottin’s high quality unbeaten half-century proved the major difference as West Indies Women easily brushed aside New Zealand Women by 65 runs yesterday, to take a 2-0 lead in their four-match One-Day International series.

The right-handed Dottin stroked 82 off 99 balls, an innings that lifted West Indies Women to 246 for five after they won the toss and batted first at Warner Park.

Stafanie Taylor weighed in with exactly 50 from 41 balls, opener Kycia Knight hit a measured 48 from 69 deliveries while Shemaine Campbelle scored 27 from 56.

Seamer Suzie Bates finished with two for 40.

In their turn at the crease, New Zealand Women were undermined by off-spinner Anisa Mohammed who picked up four for 32, and were dismissed for 181 off 45.3 overs.

Off-spinner Taylor (2-21) and left-arm spinner Shanel Daley (2-25) claimed two wickets apiece.

Middle order batsman Sophie Devine starred with a superb 89 off 93 balls while captain and opener Bates stroked 38 off 46 balls, but they found no support.

The victory was the second straight for the hosts, following their five-wicket win in the first game on Friday.

West Indies Women batted well in partnerships with Dottin, who scored 60 in the first game, anchoring the innings with a knock that included seven fours and a six.

Knight, who hit eight fours, posted 63 for the first wicket with Natasha McLean who made 15, as West Indies made a positive start.

However, both fell within the space of 16 runs, McLean bowled by left-armer Morna Nielson and Knight holing out in the deep off leg-spinner Sam Curtis in the 20th over.

Dottin then posted 41 for the third wicket with Campbelle before putting on another 97 for the fourth wicket with Taylor who smashed three fours and two sixes.

In reply, New Zealand Women wasted an opening stand of 30 between Bates, who hit six fours, and Curtis (5) and slid to 80 for six – a position from which they never recovered.

Devine, the seasoned right-hander, counter-attacked with six fours and four sixes but was ninth out with New Zealand Women still well short at 179 in the 44th over.
