Scorecard

Unbeaten half centuries from Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin set up West Indies Women's 18-run win (D/L method) over Sri Lanka Women to give their team a 2-1 lead in the four-match series.

Opting to bat, Kycia Knight (34) and Hayley Matthews (22) put on 49 before Matthews was bowled by left-arm spinner Sugandika Kumari. Five overs later, Kumari struck again to remove Knight and captain Merissa Aguilleira in the space of three balls.

Taylor, who scored nine boundaries in her 112-ball 89 not out, and Dottin then put on an unbroken 151-run stand in 28 overs for the fourth wicket to steer West Indies women to 215. Dottin's 69 not out, her second half-century of the series, included five fours and a six.

Sri Lanka women slumped to 58 for 3 and then 99 for 4 in reply before rain halted play in the 25th over. They lost Eshani Lokusuriyage to Taylor in the first ball after resumption. Then, Nipuni Hansika, who remained unbeaten on 50 off 71 balls, and Dilani Manodara added 41 runs in 8.4 overs as Sri Lanka women pursued a revised target of 189 in 40.2 overs. However, after Manodara was bowled by Afy Fletcher, Sri Lanka women lost wickets regularly to finish on 170 for 8.

Taylor later said it was an important victory as it gained them valuable points on the ICC women's championship table.
