West Indies Women clinched the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka 2-1 after the last match in Barbados went in favour of the hosts by 45 runs by the Duckworth-Lewis Method. Allrounder Shanel Daley starred for West Indies by scoring 63 with the bat and picking up three wickets.
Sri Lanka struck early with the ball, dismissing opener Juliana Nero. Daley and World No.1 batsman Stafanie Taylor put on a 74-run stand for the third wicket. West Indies captain Merissa Aguilleira also chipped in with 20 to help the team post 168 in a rain reduced 40-over match. Shashikala Siriwardene was the most effective bowler for the tourists, picking up 4 for 40.
West Indies fast bowler Subrina Munroe made life difficult for Sri Lanka's top order with the ball by picking up two wickets. The Sri Lankan middle order showed some resistance but Daley and Taylor struck regularly to wrap up the match and the series.
