The West Indies women faced three straight defeats after crashing to a 15-run defeat to India women in their must-win final One-day International of the three-match series.
The Caribbean girls were left sweating on automatic qualification for next year’s ICC 50-Overs World Cup in England. The defeat was the women’s last chance to secure the two ICC Championship points required to seal a top-four position in the standings and gain automatic World Cup Qualification.
They lie fourth on 22 points but can be overtaken by either India women who are fifth with 19 points with three games left to play or by South Africa women who are sixth on 17 points, also with three games remaining.
The West Indies will face India in the first Twenty20 of the three-match series on Friday.
