Third Twenty20 International, Invercargill

Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine impressed again to help New Zealand Women beat the West Indies Women by 24 runs in the third Twenty20 International in Invercargill.

The pair shared five wickets as the West Indies were bowled out for 109 in reply to New Zealand's 133 for six.

Bates took three for 21 and Devine two for 14 as the West Indies collapsed from 77 for three and 99 for five, losing their last five wickets for 10 runs.

The result puts New Zealand 2-0 up in the five-match series with two matches remaining.

After Bates (19), Samantha Curtis (8) and Sara McGlashan (18) had made starts, New Zealand needed Devine's 46 in 37 balls and Katie Perkins' 34 in 25 balls to help them post a competitive score.

Shakera Selman dismissed Bates, McGlashan and Katey Martin (0) to return career-best figures of three for 23.

Like New Zealand, the West Indian top order players also made starts but couldn't build substantial partnerships.

Kycia Knight (15), Kyshona Knight (21), Merissa Aguilleira (11) and Shemaine Campbelle (23) all got themselves in before New Zealand hit back.

No other player could reach double figures as the tourists collapsed, losing their finral five wickets in just 13 balls.

Bates removed Natasha McLean (9), Campbelle and Stacy-Ann King (8) while Devine bowled Shaquana Quintyne for three and had Anisa Mohammed caught by Bates for one.

Vanessa Watts (8) and Tremayne Smartt (1) were run out.
