Windies beat Lanka to level series

West Indies women produced an excellent team work to trounce the Sri Lankans and level the series when they won by 13 runs in the fourth One Day International played at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo yesterday. This would clear the path for a astonishing final match to be played today.

Sri Lankan skipper Shashikala Siriwardena won the toss and elected to field first.

The Windies openers Deandra Dottin and Steffanie Taylor got their act together to give a good start to the visitors. They put on a solid 53 run partnership in 10.4 overs before Dottin was caught by Suwini de Alwis off a delivery from Chamari Polgampola.

However the west Indies women failed to consolidate their position as they lost their wickets at regular intervals after that. Stacy Ann King was the best among the Windies batswomen with a splendid contribution of 39 which included three boundaries and two sixes.

Chamari Polgampola bowled a brilliant spell to capture three for 23 to help knock down the Windies innings for 170 runs with four deliveries remaining. Sripali Weerakkody and Shashikala Siriwardena picked up two wickets each whille Chamani Senevirathne, Chandi Wickramasinghe and Rose Fernando also provided backup support for those two, bagging one wicket each.

Sri Lankan innings did not look good from the beginning and Skipper Shashikala Siriwardena and Chandi Wickramasinghe were the only players to put up a decent score. They got together to settle down for a solid 70 run partnership before Siriwardena was caught by wicketkeeper Aguilleira off a fine delivery bowled by Stacy Ann King for 46.

Aguilera had a good day behind the wickets as she was involved in five dismissals yesterday. Shanel Daley making her first appearance in the tournament, picked up two wickets for 30 runs while Kirbyina Alexander too made an impact picking up two wickets for 15. The final and the series decider of the five match series will be played today at the same venue.
