New Zealand Win Series After Super Over
New Zealand Women 111-4 tied with
West Indies Women 111-8 - NZ won Super Over
Third Twenty20 International, Saint Vincent
New Zealand Women beat the West Indies Women in a Super Over after their decisive third Twenty20 International in Saint Vincent was tied.
Batting first, New Zealand posted 111 for four, Katie Perkins' unbeaten 31 and Sophie Devine's 30 helping them put a decent score on the board.
Perkins faced just 20 balls and helped New Zealand push on after Devine and Rachel Priest (29) had batted patiently to lay the foundations.
Shaquana Quintyne, Shanel Daley, Tremayne Smartt and Deandra Dottin all took a wicket apiece.
In reply, Deandra Dottin hit 54 before the West Indies scrambled through the final overs, eventually finishing on 111 for eight.
They had lost three wickets with the score on 21 as Kycia Knight (1), Hayley Matthews (14) and Britney Cooper (1) fell to Lea Tahuhu and Hayley Jensen, the latter of whom went on to also dismiss Shemaine Campbelle for 13 to return three for 16.
Dottin hit three fours and three sixes to keep the home side in the contest before Amy Satterthwaite (4-24) removed Merissa Aguilleira (1), Quintyne (5) and Daley (5).
With four runs required to win, Satterthwaite had Dottin caught by Tahuhu with two balls to go.
And although Anisa Mohammed (5 not out) and Shakera Selman (1 not) managed to level the scores, New Zealand were not to be denied, prevailing in the one-over shootout to seal a 2-1 series win.
