West Indies Women 97 for 4 (Campbelle 33, Kapp 3-3) beat South Africa Women 94 for 6 (du Preez 26, Daley 3-22) by six wickets
West Indies Women sealed their T20 series against South Africa Women 2-0 with a six-wicket win in St Lucia. Shemaine Campbelle top-scored with 33 as West Indies chased down their target of 95 with 16 balls to spare.
Although Marizanne Kapp struck with the second ball of the innings to bowl Juliana Nero, South Africa's total never looked like being enough. Kapp bowled superbly to record figures of 4-2-3-3 but she was not supported by her team-mates and a partnership of 56 for the third wicket between Campbelle and Natasha McLean set West Indies on their way. Both fell to the returning Kapp but that brought in the big-hitting Deandra Dottin to help wrap up a comfortable win.
Shanel Daley did most of the damage with the ball, claiming 3 for 22, as South Africa struggled to set a testing target. Daley accounted for both openers and then came back to remove top-scorer Mignon du Preez and end a partnership that had lifted South Africa from 25 for 4. Trisha Chetty and Dane van Niekerk further bolstered the score but the damage had already been done.
