West Indies Women Clinch Series In Style

South Africa Women 94-6 by 6 wickets
Second Twenty20 International, Saint Lucia
The West Indies Women completed a 2-0 Twenty20 International series win over South Africa Women with a six-wicket victory in the second and final match in Saint Lucia.
The match was played prior to the final of the Caribbean T20 - won by Trinidad and Tobago - and the West Indies gave the home crowd plenty to cheer with a dominant performance.
Shanel Daley took three for 33 as South Africa were restricted to 94 for six and although Marizanne Kapp recorded outstanding figures of three for three in four overs, West Indies reached their target in 17.2 overs.

Batting first, South Africa failed to deal with Daley's potency with the new ball and she struck quickly to remove Shandre Fritz for five and Savanna Cordes without scoring, both players trapped in front.
Kapp was then run out for 11 and Crizelda Brits stumped off Shaquana Quintyne for nought as South Africa slumped to 25 for four.
Their inings was revived by Mignon du Preez (26) and Trisha Chetty (22) as the experienced pair took the score on to 60 before Daley returned to have du Preez caught and bowled and soon after Shemaine Campbelle dismissed Chetty.
South Africa pushed hard in the closing stages to make it past three figures but despite the best efforts and crisp timing of Dane van Niekerk, who made 19, they closed just short.
Kepp then produced a fine spell of bowling, emulating Daley's efforts by bowling Juliana Nero (0), having Natasha McLean caught behind for 25 and then Campbelle caught by Chloe Tryon for 33.
However, by then the West Indies were well on course for victory. They had been in trouble at 18 for two when Kyshona Knight was dismissed for 12 but the partnership between McLean and Campbelle was well paced and after they were removed, Deandra Dottin (10 not out) and Daley (9 not out) put the seal on an emphatic win in the final match for both sides ahead of the 2013 World Cup in India.
