ST. JOHN’S, Antigua- A captain’s knock could not save the West Indies Women from a series defeat in the three-match Colonial Medical Insurance One Day International series against India Women, after India Women won the third match by six wickets at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

The West Indies Women won the toss and elected to bat first but the opening batters found it difficult to get the scoring started. No runs were scored in the first two overs as Jhulan Goswami and Shikha Pandey had Hayley Matthews and Natasha McLean pegged back with pace.

Natasha was the first to go, trying to play across the line and the ball popped up from the edge of the bat for an easy catch. Hayley playing in her first game this series, eventually took a liking to the pace from Goswami and Pandey, belting them for three fours and a six on her way to 26. Then, the turning point of the match came when Hayley was runout, a momentary slowing down of runs saw the West Indies Women inching to 50 runs on the board.
