Fourth One-Day International, Saint Kitts

The West Indies Women sealed a 4-0 One-Day International series clean sweep over New Zealand Women by winning the fourth and final match by four runs in Saint Kitts.

After being set 215 to win, New Zealand were looking well placed at 176 for two before the home side bowled them out for 210.

The game - by far the closest of the series - was in the balance right until the end as the White Ferns failed to get the six runs they needed from the final over, bowled by Shakera Selman.

When Morna Nielsen was run out by Selman and Merissa Aguilleira from the penultimate ball of the match, New Zealand had lost eight wickets for 34 runs.

Rachel Priest had top scored for 74 but her dismissal in the closing stages proved to be the pivotal moment.

Stafanie Taylor hit 66 for the West Indies as they posted 214 for eight.

The two sides now play a series of three Twenty20 Internationals in Saint Vincent, with matches on 23rd, 25th and 27th September.
