Eng­land Women go 2-1 up in ODI series

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORT - Jer­maine Lan­na­man Gleaner Writer

WEST INDIES Women will have to come from be­hind if they are to top their five-match one­day in­ter­na­tional series against Eng­land Women af­ter go­ing down by 112 runs in game three at Sabina Park yes­ter­day.

Asked to get 221 for vic­tory the West Indies, who won game two to level the series, im­ploded, and were dis­missed for 108 with 13.2 overs re­main­ing.

Yes­ter­day’s win handed Eng­land a 2-1 lead in the series with game four set for to­mor­row at Sabina Park.

“It was a tough match,” West Indies cap­tain Stafanie Tay­lor said af­ter the game and in­deed it was, as Eng­land grad­u­ally took con­trol af­ter win­ning the toss and bat­ting.

Eng­land started cau­tiously and were 24 for two in the eighth over.

BIG­GEST TO­TAL

How­ever, led by opener Lau­ren Win­field, Eng­land posted what was their big­gest to­tal of the series.

Win­field scored 79 and got good sup­port from Natalie Sciver who made 58.

The two shared a 94-run fourth wicket stand which took the to­tal from 72 for three to 167 for four.

Bowl­ing for the West Indies Natalie Sciver ... made 58 for Eng­land.

Shaquana Quin­tyne took three for 36.

When the West Indies bat­ted they had a fair start and were 35 for one in the 13th over. How­ever, as soon as cap­tain Stafanie Tay­lor was bowled for

nine by pacer Jenny Gunn to break a 20-run stand with opener Quin­tyne, it trig­gered a mini­col­lapse from which the home team never re­cov­ered.

Quin­tyne hit a top­score of 21, and Sher­maine Camp­bell got 20.

Gunn, two for eight, left-arm spin­ner Alex Hart­ley, two for 24, and pacer Laura Marsh, two for 31, ended as Eng­land’s lead­ing bowlers.

“For us, it was just the kind of per­for­mance we were hop­ing for,” said Eng­land’s cap­tain, Heather Knight.

“Our bat­ters did a good job to get us to a very com­pet­i­tive to­tal, and when we bowled we kept the pres­sure up from the get-go.” L. Win­field b Dot­tin 79 T. Beau­mont c King b Con­nell 4 G.
