Windies Women’s team captain Stafanie Taylor’s blistering half-century was backed up by a four-for from spinner Afy Fletcher as the team registered a 64-run win over Ireland, in the first match of the three-match T20I series in Dublin on Sunday.

The Windies were off to a slow start after Hayley Matthews was dismissed for 3 runs in the fourth over.  After joining Britney Cooper at the crease, Taylor went straight to work as she cracked her 75 off just 53 balls.  The innings included 11 fours and one six. 

Taylor and Cooper took the team past the half-century mark for the second wicket.  The partnership was, however, broken when Sophie MacMohan dismissed Cooper for 17.

 Shermaine Campbell then joined Taylor at the crease and the two rapidly accelerated the score, putting on 75 from 47 balls, before the team ended with 139 for 4.

In response, Ireland’s number three batsman Kim Garth was the only one to offer up any resistance, after scoring 46 from 55 balls.  The rest of the line-up failed to get into double figures as they were meekly dismissed for 75 in 18.4 overs.  Fletcher ended with impressive figures of 4 for 14, with Chinelle Henry claiming 2 for 15.

Windies skipper Stafanie Taylor was satisfied with the team’s batting effort after recording a comfortable 83-run victory over Sri Lanka on Friday.

After being accused of going missing earlier in the tournament, following subpar performances against Bangladesh and South Africa, the Windies top order got their act together in time to punish the Sri Lanka bowlers. 

Led by a belligerent 62 from opener Hayley Matthews and 49 from Deandra Dottin, the Windies put on 94 for the first wicket.

Taylor, who came to crease when the partnership was broken after Matthews’ dismissal, then added 41 from 25 balls to help the team post an unassailable 187.

In response, the Sri Lankan’s anchored by 44 from their captain Chamari Atapattu, were helped by some sloppiness in the field but still fell far short of making the match competitive after being dismissed for 104. 

“We came to the party with our batting, but I can’t say the same for the fielding.  We looked a bit ragged there,” Taylor said.

“We said that we just needed to apply ourselves out there spent some time at the crease.  The reason for winning the toss and batting was that I found that the pitch might be a keeping a bit low,” she added.

The Windies top order came to the party to post their highest Twenty20 International total of 187/5, and backed it up with a dominant performance on the field to wrap up an 83-run win over Sri Lanka in Match 16 of the ICC Women's World T20 and seal their spot in the semi-final.
