Following another ignominious batting display the West Indies Women U19 team slumped to a four-wicket defeat to Rwanda in Super-Six play of the ICC Women’s U19 World Cup at Potchefstroom on Sunday.

Batting first, the West Indies were dismissed for 70 from 16.3 overs. Opener Realeanna Grimmond scored 18 and was the only batter in double figures.

The young West Indies women has no answer to the bowling of Marie Tumukunde, who took match-winning figures of 4-8 and Sylvia Usabyimana, who ended with 4-20.

Needing 71 for victory, Rwanda were in some trouble at 36-5 in the 11th over but Captain Gisele Ishimwe’s steady innings of an unbeaten 31 from 53 balls steered her team to victory with 10 balls to spare.

The loss means the West Indies Women U19 are third in Group 2 after consecutive losses. England and New Zealand are first and second, respectively in the group.

Both teams remain unbeaten in the competition.
