Windies off-spinner Anisa Mohammed has been included in the 13-member West Indies Women’s squad to play the three-match Colonial Medical Insurance One Day International (ODI) Series against Australia, starting on September 5 in Antigua.

 A blistering unbeaten century from Windies opener Hayley Matthews put the team in perfect position to complete a sweep of Ireland Women, at the Pembroke Cricket Club on Wednesday.

 Despite the Windies already holding a 2-0 lead, the 23-year-old was in no mood to take things easy as her savage 107 runs from just 62 balls pushed the regional team to an impressive 188 for one.  Matthews’ innings consisted of seven fours and an astonishing 9 sixes.

The total was the player’s first century in the format, in the process becoming the 11th woman to reach the triple digit mark in the format.  Taylor received outstanding support from Chedean Nation, who compiled a brisk 63 from 46 balls, and also remained unbeaten at the crease.  Nation hit two sixes and six boundaries in the total. 

The Windies lost Britney Cooper early, with 26 runs on the board, but had very few issues afterwards as Matthews and Nation took the bowling attack apart. 

Sophie MacMahon took the lone wicket of Cooper but went for a costly 36 runs.  The Windies won the first match by 64 runs, before winning the second match by 45 runs.

A steady showing from the Windies Women top order saw the team coast to a 45-run win, which wrapped up the T20 series against Ireland at the Pembroke Cricket Club on Tuesday.

Hayley Matthews cracked a timely 33 from 32 balls, Britney Cooper added 20 from 11 and Stacy-Ann King 34 from 33, their efforts forming the base of the Windies total of 157 for 6.  For the Irish, who struggled to remain competitive, it was captain Kim Garth who did most of the damage with the ball after claiming 3 for 22.

In response, it was Garth who showed up to be counted for Irish again with the bat, her unbeaten 51 runs from 48 balls threatening to keep the match competitive.  In the end, however, opener Mary Waldron, who crafted 25 from 28, proved to be the only support Garth would get.  With the exception of Gaby Lewis, who crafted 11 from 11, the rest of the Ireland team would fail to get into double figures.

  King and Afy Fletcher got the majority of the wickets for the West Indies after claiming two each.  King captured 2 for 15, while Fletcher ended with 2 for 20.  The Windies Women will take a 2-0 lead into their final fixture against the Irish on Wednesday.

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.
