Trinidadian all-rounder Britney Cooper has been named as the replacement for Deandra Dottin for the West Indies Women’s tour to Ireland and England later this month.

Barbados swept aside Guyana to add the Cricket West Indies Women’s T20 Blaze title to the Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 title they won over a week ago.

Hayley Matthews won two of the top prizes at the prize-giving ceremony of the 2019 Colonial Medical Insurance Women’s Super50 Cup on Tuesday.

Pakistan Women drew level in their ICC Women’s Championship series against the visiting Windies with a dominant performance at the ICC Academy in Dubai. 

Deandra Dottin scored a half-century and took three wickets as Windies Women won the first of three ODIs against Pakistan by 146 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday.

Windies Women ended a three-test tour of Pakistan a losing note as the hosts rebounded to score a 12-run win in Karachi on Sunday.

After winning the toss and choosing to bat, Pakistan Women, led by 53 off 40 balls from Nida Dar, put 150 runs on the board after their 20 overs.  The hosts lost six wickets in the process.

 In response, Windies star all-rounder Deandra Dottin was her usual belligerent self and batted freely to crack 46 from 29 balls but the team was restricted to 138 in their 20 overs.  Things began badly for the regional team when Kycia Knight was dismissed for a duck and Shermaine Campbelle following soon after.

Except for Dottin, the Windies never really got into the run chase and wickets fell at regular intervals.  Anam Amin was Pakistan’s best bowler after claiming figures of 3 for 34.  Pakistan were beaten by 71 runs in the first game but pressed the West Indies all the way in the second, tying the match before going down in the Super Over as Dottin was on point again. 

The two teams now travel to Dubai to play an ODI series that is part of the ICC's qualifiers for the World Cup.


Deandra Dottin won the second T20 international for the Windies Women against Pakistan in a Super Over on Friday after the teams ended in a tie after the regulation 20 overs.

Windies Women’s batsman Deandra Dottin was extremely pleased with a blistering half-ton, which lifted the team to a crushing 71-run win over Pakistan, in Karachi, on Thursday.

In the first of three T20s between the teams, Dottin cracked an unbeaten 90 as the regional team compiled a solid 160 for 2, before dismissing Pakistan for 89. 

The all-rounder got off to a fiery start, gathering 29 of the team’s 41 runs inside the Powerplay.  Dottin’s innings consisted of 8 fours and 4 sixes.

 “I have been working on my innings.  When I assessed the conditions, I found that the pitch was a good batting pitch,” Dottin said after the match.

“It wasn’t my plan to go at them early, but the first ball fell into my area so I just went with it,” she added.

In her time at the crease, Dottin received solid support from Chedean Nation who added an unbeaten 50 as the two put on 109 runs in 11.4 overs.

“It was very good batting with Chedean Nation.  I haven’t batted with her in a while.  It’s good to see her hitting the ball, she batted really well and ran between the wickets really.”

The West Indies women are making their first appearance in Pakistan in 15 years.  The next two matches are on Friday and Sunday, in Karachi.

Deandra Dottin smashed an unbeaten 90 on Thursday to get the Windies Women off to a flying start against Pakistan in their three-match T20 series against Pakistan.

Fiery Windies Women’s all-rounder Deandra Dottin is now the number two ranked all-rounder in the world following a sensational performance in the recently concluded Women’s World Cup.

The 27-year-old Barbadian was perhaps the teams most outstanding player after finishing with 121 runs and ten wickets in the tournament.  The figures saw Dottin at the top of the most wickets table, tied with Australia’s Ashleigh Gardner and Megan Schutt.  The West Indian was the eighth on the most runs scored charts and fourth for the most sixes.

The latest shift in the rankings saw Dottin shoot past both Australia's Ellyse Perry and compatriot Hayley Mathews.  West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor continues to be at the top of the list.

In the overall team rankings, Australia strengthened their position at the top after capturing a fourth World T20 title.  The Windies remain the number fifth-ranked team in the world.

Veteran all-rounder, Deandra Dottin, was the only West Indies player named to the all-star team for the just-concluded ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup.

While the hosts under-performed in failing to defend their title, Dottin stood out especially with the ball as she claimed the joint most wickets with 10, along with Australian seamer, Megan Schutt, and teammate, off-spinner Ashleigh Gardner.

The 27-year-old, a sharp medium-pacer, produced career-best figures of five for five against Bangladesh as West Indies got their campaign up and running with a convincing 60-run victory in Guyana.

With the bat, the right-hander scored 121 runs – the most by a West Indies player – which was good enough to place her in the top 10 for the tournament.

Dottin had a top score of 49 against Sri Lanka in St. Lucia and also struck 46 as West Indies pulled off a dramatic last-over victory over nemesis England in their final preliminary match at the same venue.

The Barbadian has remained one of the Caribbean side’s leading players in both formats, since making her debut as a 17-year-old.

Despite going down by eight wickets to Australia in Saturday’s final, England boast the most players in the XI with three – wicketkeeper Amy Jones, left-arm spinner Kirstie Gordon and seamer Anya Shrubsole.

Player-of-the-Tournament Alyssa Healy, who topped the batting aggregates with 225 runs, was one of two Australian players in the XI with seamer Ellyse Perry included for her nine wickets.

SQUAD – Alyssa Healy (Australia), Smriti Mandhana (India), Amy Jones (England), Harmanpreet Kaur (India), Deandra Dottin (Windies), Javeria Khan (Pakistan), Ellyse Perry (Australia), Leigh Kasperek (New Zealand), Anya Shrubsole (England), Kirstie Gordon (England), Poonam Yadav (India).

Deandra Dottin had another special day, with bat, ball and on the field, before Shemaine Campbelle backed her up with a nerveless 45 to take Windies Women home by four wickets in a thriller against England.

In a clash on Sunday, 18 November, at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia to decide the ICC Women's World T20 Group A toppers, the hosts chose to field and their pacers had the opposition in trouble at 50 for 6, with only Tammy Beaumont getting into double-figures.

Sophia Dunkley and Anya Shrubsole's timely partnership of 58 formed the bulk of England's 115 for 8. Dottin, having already taken 2 for21, wrapped up the innings with a fantastic catch at backward point.

Nat Sciver and Anya Shrubsole not only had the Windies down to 3 for 2, but proved difficult to get away with the new ball. Dottin, having started out circumspect, took on Dani Hazell, smashing four sixes in her 46 off 52 balls.

Like with England, making the difference was one solid partnership: Campbelle gave Dottin good support in a third-wicket stand worth 68. From 26 needed from three overs, Campbelle brought it down to 10 from 10, before Kycia Knight struck the winning boundary to win with three balls to spare.
