There has been little to separate South Africa and West Indies Women so far on the former's tour of the Caribbean, and that was a trend that continued for much of today's opening Twenty20 International until Deandra Dottin launched a late onslaught.
The 21 year-old from Barbados, in her 50th T20 International, hit three sixes during her knock of 48, which spanned 30 balls, and eventually helped her side home with 10 balls and eight wickets to spare.
The West Indies have confirmed their women's squad for the two Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa Women on 19th and 20th January.
The only uncapped player in the squad is Kyshona Knight, who made her One-Day International debut during the 2-2 series draw that preceded the Twenty20 matches.
An inspired performance by Stafanie Taylor drove the West Indies Women to a 22-run victory over South Africa Women in the fifth and final One-Day International in Dominica.
Taylor's 76 helped the West Indies post 177 for eight and by bowling out South Africa for 155, they successfully levelled the series having been 2-0 down with three games remaining.
The fourth One-Day International betweenWest Indies Women and South Africa Women in Dominica was abandoned due to rain, leaving South Africa 2-1 up with one game to play.
The start was delayed and South Africa were bowled out for 139 before the West Indies only managed to reach eight without loss in two overs before the rain closed in again.
Stafanie Taylor took four wickets and scored a half-century to launch the West Indies Women to an eight-wicket win over South Africa Women in the third One-Day International in Dominica.
She returned four for 22 as South Africa were bowled out for 120 and then top scored with 71 as the West Indies took their first win of the series.
Four wickets for Sunette Loubser and an unbeaten innings of 33 from Dane van Niekerk guided South Africa Women to a four-wicket win over West Indies Women in the second One-Day International in Saint Kitts.
In a low-scoring match, the West Indies were dismissed cheaply for the second game in a row but without van Niekerk's effort, the home side might well have levelled the series.
Dane van Niekerk took a hat-trick and returned figures of five for 28 to bowl South Africa Women to an 80-run win over West Indies Women in the first One-Day International in Saint Kitts.
After Trisha Chetty's 57 had helped South Africa reach 206 for eight, van Niekerk ripped through West Indies' batting to dismiss the home side for 126 in reply.
West Indies Women and South Africa Women have both named their squads for the five-match One-Day International series between the two sides, which begins in St Kitts on 7th January.
West Indies will again be led by Merissa Aguilleira and include ICC Women's ODI Player of the Year, Stafanie Taylor, as their vice-captain.
Former Indian captain Anjum Chopra has been appointed as a technical advisor to the South African Women's squad ahead of the Women's World Cup in January and February.
Chopra played in six World Cups herself and was the first Indian to play in 100 One-Day Internationals, leading India to their first ever overseas Test series win.
West Indies Women will play five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals against South Africa Women from 7th to 20th January.
The ODI series will provide both teams with competitive preparation for the World Cup and the two Twenty20 matches will be played ahead of the final matches of the Caribbean Twenty20.
The West Indies selectors and coaching team will take a look at two new players at a training camp ahead of their women's series against South Africa in January.
Kyshonna Knight - twin sister of Kycia - and Shemilia Connell are the new players in the 18-strong squad which will be working in Barbados for four weeks.
