West Indies Women 118 for 7 (Taylor 40, Gunn 2-12) tied with England Women 118 for 7 (Greenway 36, Taylor 3-15)
Super Over West Indies 9 beat England 6
Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin gave West Indies women their third win of the series as they beat England in a Super Over in Bridgetown. After both the teams scored 118 for 7, England scored 9 from six balls and Dotting took only two deliveries to seal the win.
Once West Indies lost their openers within eight overs, Taylor steered the innings along with debutant Chinelle Henry and Dottin. Taylor fell for a 43-ball 40 at the team score of 99 and Dottin smashed 26 from 12 with a four and two sixes. The lower order could not score much as Jenny Gunn took two wickets from her two overs. Shemaine Campbelle's two fours in a six-ball 11 took them to 118.
England started steadily in their chase as their top-order batsmen reached double figures but Anisa Mohammed dismissed two of the top three batsmen. Lydia Greenway kept them on course but Taylor brought West Indies back in the game. She got Tammy Beaumont lbw for 10 and Greenway could only take the team score to 101 before she was run-out for 36, which opened doors for the hosts to fight back. Taylor took two wickets in consecutive balls in the last over, to finish with 3 for 15, as England couldn't get past 118.
In the Super Over, England lost Danielle Wyatt for 1 and Natalie Sciver and Greenway could manage only five runs from the next five balls. West Indies sent the hard-hitting Dottin for the task and she completed it with consecutive fours off the first two balls even as the third ball was a no-ball.
The two teams will now play the tri-series final on Saturday on the same ground.
