Windies Women crash to second defeat
 

New Zealand Cricket article.

Lincoln, New Zealand - The White Ferns have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead against the West Indies Women, after beating the visitors by 94 runs in the second One Day International in Lincoln.

Anchored by Sara McGlashan with 71 and aided by some heavy hitting from Rachel Priest at the death, the White Ferns posted an imposing 274 for five in the first innings. The West Indies response lacked a big partnership and after 50 overs they were restricted to 180 for nine. Holly Huddleston was the chief destroyer with the ball for the White Ferns, taking her maiden five-wicket-bag.

Having lost the toss and been asked to bat, the White Ferns suffered an early hiccup when captain Suzie Bates was dismissed for seven. However, the pair of Samantha Curtis and Sara McGlashan steadied the ship for the hosts, putting on 98 for the second wicket.

Curtis, playing in her second match, gave away few chances on her way to 42, but was run-out thanks to an athletic bit of fielding from Shemaine Campbell. Thankfully it didn’t take long for her replacement, Sophie Devine (45), to establish herself at the crease.

Even McGlashan’s dismissal in the 35th over didn’t slow the White Ferns down, with Katie Perkins teaming up with Devine to put on 62 for the fourth wicket. Devine’s knock came from 40 balls and included six fours, before ending when she was caught on the boundary.

With eight overs remaining the White Ferns were 196 for four, but a flurry of boundaries from Perkins (45* off 34) and Priest (40* from 19) would add a further 78 to their total. Priest in particular was in formidable touch, crunching five consecutive boundaries at one point.

Two run-outs hurt the home side, while three West Indies bowlers took a wicket apiece.

With such a high target it was going to take a special individual effort to topple the White Ferns total, but the bowlers did a good job of pegging the West Indies back whenever they began to look threatening.

The key wicket was that of Stafanie Taylor, who looked dangerous en route to 32, before driving one to McGlashan who took a sharp catch.

Shemaine Campbell (45) loomed as their last hope, but in the 33rd over the 21 year-old fell victim to Huddleston, who almost singlehandedly destroyed the West Indies middle-order. In the end the 26-year-old finished with impressive figures of five for 36 from 10 overs.

The White Ferns will have a chance to go for the clean-sweep on Wednesday.
