NZ Women vs. WI Women T20 Series…Bates leads NZ to 4-0 sweep

Suzie Bates scored her second consecutive half-century to lead New Zealand Women to a total that was once again beyond West Indies Women’s abilities in Mount Maunganui. The 34-run victory in the fifth and final T20 gave the hosts the series 4-0, after they had also swept the one-day contest 3-0. Bates was named Player of the Match and the T20 series.

Bates gave her team a promising start after New Zealand won the toss, adding 47 for the first wicket with Hayley Jensen, who made 19. Bates then had a 54-run stand with Sara McGlashan for the second wicket, taking the score to 101 for 2 in 15.4 overs by the time the stand was broken. New Zealand slowed down after that, though, finishing on 124 for 5, with Bates making 57 off 51 balls. Shanel Daley was the pick of the West Indian bowlers, taking 2 for 17.

West Indies lost their openers in the space of a run during the chase to slip to 19 for 2, and after a 40-run stand for the third wicket between Kycia and Kyshona Knight, the slump was drastic. They fell from 59 for 2 to 90 all out in 19.4 overs. Sophine Devine took 3 for 9 in 3.4 overs for New Zealand.
