Taylor And Daley Star In West Indies Victory
West Indies Women 106-4 (Taylor 50) beat
Sri Lanka Women 103-9 (Rasangika 20, Daley 3-14) by six wickets
First Twenty20 International, Cayon
Stafanie Taylor scored a half-century and Shanel Daley took three wickets as the West Indies Women beat Sri Lanka Women by six wickets in their opening Twenty20 International in Cayon in Saint Kitts.
After Sri Lanka reached 103 for nine in their 20 overs, Taylor's 50 enabled the West Indies to get home with nine balls to spare.
Top scorer for Sri Lanka was Deepika Rasangika, who made 20 as the tourists struggled with Daley returning three for 14, Taylor and Anisa Mohammed taking a wicket apiece and the remaining four batters being run out.
In reply, Taylor was supported by Cordel Jack (23) and Deandra Dottin (14) as the West Indies bounced back from the disappointment of losing the second and final One-Day International one day earlier.
The two sides tied the ODI series 1-1 and play two further Twenty20 Internationals on 23rd and 24th April.
