A fighting knock of 40 from skipper Merissa Aguilleira was the only sparkle as West Indies suffered a batting collapse and lost to South Africa by 80 runs in the first of their five-match one-day international series at Warner Park here yesterday.

Aguilleira cracked seven fours in her gutsy innings, facing 43 balls, to lead a Windies fightback, as the home side spluttered to 126 all out in 35 overs, chasing the visitors' 206 for eight off 50 overs.

The collapse began without a run on the board after losing the prized scalp of Stafanie Taylor for a duck to Marizanne Kapp, the slow medium bowler.
