West Indies Women opened the West Indies Tri-Nation with a convincing 23-run victory over New Zealand Women, thanks largely to Deandra Dottin's 52 and Anisa Mohammed's 5 for 12. West Indies elected to bat, but were quickly in trouble at 18 for 3 inside six overs. Kyshona Knight and Dottin began to rebuild with a 51-run partnership for the fourth wicket, before Sian Ruck dismissed Knight on 20. Stacy-Ann King hit 12 off 8 to lift West Indies to 104 for 6 in their 20 overs.

West Indies needed a strong performance from their bowlers to defend that score, and they delivered. New Zealand faced a similar situation when they were left at 15 for 3 with a couple of top-order run-outs. Then came the spin threat of Mohammed. Only Amy Satterthwaite and Rachel Priest reached double figures as Mohammed rocked the New Zealand line-up with 5 for 12, her second T20-career five-wicket haul. New Zealand could only muster 81 before they were bowled out with an over to spare.

New Zealand take on England in the next game, on October 16.
