West Indies Women 115 (Dottin 34) beat
Bangladesh Women 79 (Quintyne 3-5) by 36 runs
ICC Women's World Twenty20 Group B, Sylhet
The West Indies swept hosts Bangladesh aside to take their second win at the ICC Women's World Twenty20, running out victors by 36 runs.
Bangladesh performed creditably with the ball to dismiss the West Indies for 115, only to be dismissed themselves for 79.
Deandra Dottin top scored for the West Indies with 34 while spinner Shaquana Quintyne took three wickets to end Bangladesh's innings in 17.3 overs.
Bangladesh made good early progress with the ball as Salma Khatun removed Kycia Knight without scoring and both Quintyne and Kyshona Knight fell to Fahima Khatun for 11 to leave the West Indies at 33 for three.
Merissa Aguilleira (6) was caught by Panna Ghosh off Rumana Ahmed before Dottin and Stacy-Ann King combined to revive the innings.
Dottin hit three fours and a six during her run-a-ball 34 while King scored 20 in 13 balls with two fours and a six.
And the West Indies eventually powered past the 100-run mark with Mohammed adding a quickfire 15 in 14 balls at the death.
Khadija Tul Kubra emerged as the pick of the bowlers, removing Dottin, King and Shakera Selman (1) to claim three for 24 while Salma took two for 11 and Fahima two for 27.
For Bangladesh, chasing 116 was always going to be a tricky proposition given that their highest Twenty20 score is 113 and they have only passed 100 on four occasions.
Against the West Indies' experienced attack, particularly the spinners, they came up short with Rumana (26), Salma (17) and Ayasha Rahman (10) were the only players to reach double figures.
Leg-spinner Quintyne struck early and was almost unplayable, bowling Rahman, trapping Farzana Haque in front for two and having Rumana caught by Tremayne Smartt.
Mohammed trapped Salma and Nuzhat Talhi (6) leg before and Smartt also picked up a brace of wickets by seeing off Lata Mondal (3) and Ghosh (1), both caught by Mohammed.
Selman ran out Sanjida Islam for eight and Fahima for one before bringing the match to a close by bowling Tul Kobra for a golden duck.
The West Indies sit atop Group B after an earlier win over England by nine runs and next play Sri Lanak on Friday (28th March).
Bangladesh play England on the same day.
