New Zealand Women 181 by 65 runs
Second One-Day International, Saint Kitts

The West Indies Women beat New Zealand Women by 65 runs in the second One-Day International in Saint Kitts to take a 2-0 lead in the four-match series.

It also guarantees them another two points in the ICC Women's Championship, which serves as the qualification pathway for the 2017 Women's World Cup.

The West Indies posted 246 for five batting first and a target of 247 proved beyond the tourists.

They were eventually bowled out for 181 in 45.3 overs.

Deandra Dottin top scored for the West Indies with a composed 82 not out in 93 balls and she received good support from Stafanie Taylor (50), Kycia Knight (48) and Shemaine Campbelle (27).

Anisa Mohammed then took four for 32 to bowl the home side to victory with Taylor and Shanel Daley taking two wickets apiece.

Sophie Devine blasted 89 in 93 balls but fell to Mohammed in the 44th over and soon after, New Zealand's challenge was over.

The home side won the opening game by five wickets and the third game is on Tuesday (16th September).
