West Indies women fall on final ball

West Indies women’s team fell to England today (24 March) in ICC World Twenty20 Women’s Championship play.

West Indies batted first and ended up having to defend 108.

In the chase, England got off to a good start and required 50 runs with 12 overs to go with all wickets in hand.

Then the wickets began to fall as Afy Fletcher took three for 12 and Shaquana Quintyne three for 19.

With two balls remaining in the match, England trailed by three runs. After a wide and a dab to point, it was down to batsman Natalie Sciver, who missed the next delivery but the Windies wicket keeper threw the ball away, giving England the win.

“We actually bounced back and were getting some wickets but it’s just unfortunate that we didn’t get the one that we really needed,” West Indies Captain Stafanie Taylor said.

On Friday 25 March, West Indies men play South Africa. A win sends the Caribbean side through to the semifinals.
