West Indies Hit Back With Crushing Win
West Indies Women 148 beat
New Zealand Women 59 by 89 runs
Second One-Day International, Kingston
West Indies Women rebounded from their one-run defeat in the opening One-Day International to beat New Zealand Women by 89 runs in the second game in Jamaica.
After recovering from 95 for eight to be all out for 148, the home side then delivered a stunning bowling performance to dismiss New Zealand for just 59.
It was their lowest score in an ODI since they were bowled out for 58 by Australia in 1985, just the seventh time they'd failed to reach double figures in ODI history and the first time since 2007.
The West Indian spinners did much of the damage as Shaquana Quintyne followed up top scoring with 29 by taking two for nine, Stafanie Taylor returned three for 10 and Shanel Daley's left-arm spin accounted for two for 14.
Katie Perkins, unbeaten on 18, was the only player to reach double figures as the White Ferns slumped to 32 for seven before a partial recovery.
Their downfall began with the cheap dismissal of Suzie Bates, who followed up her century in the opening match with just four before she was trapped in front by Daley and Deandra Dottin swooped to run out Natalie Dodd (7) and Amy Satterthwaite (2).
In between those dismissals, Daley struck again to remove Sophie Devine for two and Taylor's triple-strike, taking out Nicola Browne (0), Rachel Priest (1) and Morna Nielsen (0) put the game beyond New Zealand.
Quintyne almost put the game to bed when she had Erin Bermingham (8) and Lea Tahuhu (0) caught behind and the game was over when Anisa Mohammed trapped Sian Ruck in front for five.
Earlier, Quintyne made 29 in 58 balls and added 43 for the ninth wicket with Shakera Selman, who marked her 50th ODI by scoring 22.
West Indies had made a strong start as openers Kycia Knight (24) and Natasha McLean (21) put on 52 for the first wicket; it would prove to be the biggest partnership of the day.
Nielsen returned three for 12 with the wickets of Shemaine Campbelle (10), Dottin (8) and Merissa Aguilleira (6) as the home side went from 53 for one to 95 for eight.
Quintyne then patiently helped the home side accumulate vital runs, well supported by Selman, before she was the last to fall with the score on 148.
Bermingham (2-15), Bates (2-27) and Browne (1-33) were the other wicket-takers.
The decisive third match will be played on Thursday.
