West Indies Women 103-2 (Taylor 54no) beat
India Women 101-8 (Mohammed 3-20) by eight wickets
First Twenty20 International, Antigua
Stafanie Taylor with the bat and Anisa Mohammed with the ball were the chief architects of West Indies Women's eight-wicket victory over India Women in the first Twenty20 International in Antigua.
Mohammed took three for 20 to restrict India to 101 for eight before Taylor hit 54 not out in 52 as the West Indies reached their target with four overs to spare.
Harmanpreet Kaur top scored for India with 28 but they found run scoring difficult against the West Indian bowlers. Stacy-Ann King, Taylor and Shemaine Campbelle all took a wicket apiece.
The West Indies then lost Juliana Nero (0) and Shanel Daley (11) cheaply but Taylor and Deandra Dottin, who hammered 28 not out in 19 balls forged a match-winning partnership of 59 to guide the home side to victory.
