West Indies Women 74-2 (Taylor 23no) beat
New Zealand Women 69 by eight wickets
Third One-Day International, Saint Kitts

Shakera Selman and Anisa Mohammed shared eight wickets as the West Indies Women handed New Zealand Women an eight-wicket hammering in the third One-Day International in Saint Kitts.

Pacer Selman bagged five for 15 and spinner Mohammed three for 11 as New Zealand were shot out for just 69 in 32.2 overs.

The West Indies needed just 17.2 overs to race to victory and move into a 3-0 lead in the ODI series.

Those three straight wins also lift them level with Australia at the top of the ICC Women's Championship with six points from three games.

New Zealand's all out score of 69 is their fourth lowest of all time and an innings in which only three players reached double figures.

Suzie Bates (13), Rachel Priest (19) and Maddy Green (14) offered some resistance before Shanel Daley and Shaquana Quintyne also took a wicket apiece.

Selman dismissed Sam Curtis (0), Sara McGlashan (1), Amy Satterthwaite (2), Sophie Devine (5) and Katey Perkins (1) as the tourists crashed to 38 for six.

Priest and Green faced 56 and 35 balls respectively as they tried to rescue things but Mohammed removed both, as well as Morna Nielsen for nought to wrap things up.

In reply, Kycia Knight made 13 before she was run out by Suzie Bates and Natasha McLean scored 10 before being trapped in front by Georgia Guy, but the experience of Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin saw them home.

The former hit 23 not out in 29 balls and the latter 21 in 23 to put the home side into an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series with one game - on 19th September - remaining.
