West Indies Women 95 for 4 (Taylor 37) beat India Women 94 for 5 (Raj 49*, Daley 3-14) by six wickets
West Indies Women secured the five-match Twenty20 series 3-1, with one game to play, by beating India by six wickets in Roseau, Dominica.
West Indies chose to bowl and made quick inroads, reducing India to 17 for 4, but Mithali Raj - batting at No. 4 - made sure the innings lasted 20 overs. She finished on 49 not out, as India got to 94 for 5. New-ball bowler Shanel Daley had the best figures for West Indies: 4-0-14-3.
In the chase, India knocked over the top three wickets at regular intervals, with the hosts on 41 for 3 at one stage. However, a fourth-wicket stand of 46 between Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin sealed the match for them. Taylor, who was unbeaten on 37 at the end and had taken one wicket earlier, was named Player of the Match.
The final match of the series will be played on Feburary 27 in Kingston.
