West Indies Women 102 for 2 (Taylor 54*) beat India Women 101 for 9 (Mohammed 3-20) by eight wickets
Stafanie Taylor's half-century ensured that West Indies Women began the home series against India Women with a commanding eight-wicket victory in the first Twenty20 in North Sound.
Chasing only 102, Taylor scored 54 off 52 balls and remained unbeaten as the target was achieved with four overs to spare. Deandra Dottin made 29 off 18 balls. Jhulan Goswami and Archana Das were the wicket-takers for India.
The victory had been set up by West Indies' bowlers, who restricted India to 101 for 9. Anisa Mohammed was the most successful, taking 3 for 20 in four overs, but Taylor's spell of 4-0-10-1 stifled India. No one apart from Harmanpreet Kaur got past 20 and India's innings also suffered from three run-outs.
