HEADLINE: New Zealand Women sweep series 3-0 2018-03-11 07:16:06 

CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand- WINDIES Women suffered a massive 205-runs defeat to New Zealand White Ferns at Hagley Park and go 3-0 down in the ICC Women’s Championship ODI series.

Stafanie Taylor won the toss for the WINDIES Women and elected to bowl first. Playing with two changes, with Anisa Mohammed and Akira Peters playing for the first time in this series, WINDIES Women were hoping to put the home team on the backfoot early.

Lauren Down was promoted up the order to open with her Captain Suzie Bates but did not last long. With 16 runs on the board, Down was run-out from a throw-in by KyshonnaKnight and Shamilia Connell completing the dismissal.

Then came the partnership that gave New Zealand their winning total. Bates was partnered with Amy Satterthwaite and the pair posted 151 runs with Bates being the aggressor.

The pair rotated the strike frequently and smashed away the bad deliveries. Both batters reached their half centuries before Satterthwaite was the first to go for 69. Run-out by a direct hit from Akira Peters in deep.

Bates fell 7 runs late when Shamilia Connell bowled the perfect line and length delivery to light up her bails.
