All-Rounders Hand West Indies Series Victory
West Indies Women 168-7 (Daley 63) beat
Sri Lanka Women 131 by 45 runs (D/L)
Third One-Day International, Barbados
Shanel Daley scored 63 and then took three wickets to drive the West Indies to a 45-run win over Sri Lanka in the decisive third and final One-Day International in Barbados.
The West Indies posted 168 for seven before Sri Lanka, set 177 to win in 40 overs under the Duckworth/Lewis method, were bowled out for 131 in reply.
Daley's 63 came from 105 balls while opener Stafanie Taylor made 44 to underpin the home side's innings as Shashikala Siriwardene returned figures of four for 40.
Sri Lanka's reply never really got going, and they slipped to 71 for six with Daley taking three for 25, Subrina Munroe three for 15 and Taylor two for ten as the West Indian all-rounders held sway.
Sripali Weerakkody top scored with 29 as Sri Lanka were unable to follow up their one-wicket win in the second match, resulting in a 2-1 series win for the West Indies.
The two sides now begin a five-match Twenty20 International series on 1st May.
