West Indies Women and South Africa Women will lock horns in the second game of their four-match ODI series on Monday, January 31. The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg will host the clash.
The first ODI between the two teams on Friday, January 28, didn't produce a result as rain played spoilsport. After being put in to bat first, the visiting team piled on 234 for the loss of three wickets. Opening batter Deandra Dottin looked at her stupendous best.
The right-hander notched her career-best score of 150, laced with 18 fours and four sixes. Hayley Matthews, batting at No.5, lent her support by scoring 51 runs off 63 balls with the help of four fours. Skipper Stafanie Taylor failed to impress with the willow.
Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas and Ayobanga Khaka picked up three wickets apiece for South Africa. Sune Luus also bowled at an excellent economy rate of 2.90 in her 10 overs. Following the rain interruption, the hosts were set a revised target of 204 in 29 overs.
Matthews and Karishma Ramharack picked up two wickets apiece and reduced South Africa to 87 for five in 17.4 overs. Shamilia Connell got the important wicket of Laura Wolvaardt. Just when West Indies looked good to secure a win, the heavens opened up.
