West Indies Women 159-6 (Dottin 112) beat
Sri Lanka Women 128-5 (Matthews 4-18) by 31 runs
Third Twenty20 International in Antigua

After Deandra Dottin slammed a brilliant century to take West Indies Women to 159 for six in the 20 overs, Hayley Matthews picked a four-wicket haul to restrict Sri Lanka Women to 128 for five in the chase in the third and final Twenty20 International in Antigua as the home side completed a 3-0 series whitewash.

West Indies won the toss and decided to bat first. After losing Stafanie Taylor (5) early, Matthews (34) and Dottin (112) shared a 121 run stand for the second wicket to lay a solid platform.

Dottin was the major contributor and scored at a strike rate of over 160 and even went past the three figure mark in an innings that had nine boundaries and five sixes. With not much contribution from the rest of the players, West Indies could manage only 159 for six in the 20 overs.

In the chase, Yasoda Mendis (9), Nipuni Hansika (12) and Chamari Atapattu (0) fell early. Courtesy a fiery spell from Matthews (4-18). Even though Shashikala Siriwardene (50) and Rebeca Vandort (50) scored half centuries, they became victims of Matthews as Sri Lanka were restricted to 128 for five.

The result also means Sri Lanka lost both the One-Day International and T20I series 3-0 to West Indies.
