Sri Lanka Women 94-7 (Mendis 21) beat
West Indies Women  80-9 by 14 runs
Fourth Twenty20 International, Trinidad

Sri Lanka Women earned a 14-run victory in the fourth Twenty20 International against the West Indies in Trinidad as they prevailed in a low-scoring encounter.

Sri Lanka's score of 94 for seven proved enough for victory when the West Indies were restricted to just 80 for nine in reply.

The West Indies lead the series 3-1 with one game remaining, however.

Four players reached double figures during the Sri Lankan innings, opener Yashoda Mendis top scoring with 21 as Shemaine Campbelle took two wickets and three players were run out.

For the West Indies, Juliana Nero made 32 at the top of the order - scoring 42 percent of the runs off the bat - before Sri Lanka took control.

Madhuri Samuddika (3-11) and Chamani Seneverathne (2-10) ripped through the batting and the rest of the West Indians were dismissed for single figures, with the exception of Stacy-Ann King, who was unbeaten on one, and Subrina Munroe, who did not bat.
