West Indies Women took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series after India Women collapsed for 106 in their case of 138 in the second match in Mulapadu.
The hosts, having limited West Indies to 137, did not recover from an early batting slump and their innings folded with the loss of six wickets for 33 runs. Only three India batsmen scored more than 15, with captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s 43 the top score. For West Indies, Anisa Mohammed and Deandra Dottin took three wickets each, mopping up the middle and lower order after Shakera Selman and Hayley Matthews had accounted for the openers and No. 4 Veda Krishnamurthy.
Earlier Stafanie Taylor‘s unbeaten 47 anchored West Indies after they were put in to bat. Taylor was part of two 48-run partnerships for the third and fourth wickets – with Dottin and Merissa Aguilleira respectively. The Taylor-Dottin stand looked set to lift West Indies to a total higher than their eventual 137, before Taylor and Aguilleira collected 48 runs off the last six overs.
