West Indies Women beat South Africa Women by 22 runs in the fifth and final one-day international here yesterday, to complete a remarkable comeback and ensure a 2-2 tie in the series.

Sent in at Windsor Park, the Windies rallied to 177 for eight off their 50 overs thanks to a fabulous century stand between world-rated opener Stafanie Taylor who top scored with 76, and Shemaine Campbelle who got 47.

Nineteen-year-old leg-spinner Dane van Niekerk claimed three for 31, while 18-year-old left-arm seamer Chloe Tryon finished with two for 28.

When South Africa batted, they lost early wickets and were dismissed for 155 off 46.3 overs as medium-pacer Shakera Selman (2-14), fast-bowler Campbelle (2-28) and teenage leg-spinner Shaquana Quintyne (2-34) all picked up two wickets apiece.
