New Zealand Women 133 for 6 (Devine 46, Selman 3-23) beat West Indies Women 109 (Campbelle 23, Bates 3-21) by 24 runs
New Zealand Women's attack proved too much for West Indies Women once again as the hosts took a 2-0 lead in the five-match Twenty20 series with a 24-run win in Invercargill.
Having lost the toss, New Zealand relied on Sophie Devine and Katie Perkins to post a total of 133 for 6 in 20 overs. Devine made 46 off 37 balls, while Perkins contributed 34 off 25. They added 49 runs for the fourth wicket. Shakera Selman took 3 for 23 for West Indies.
Only four West Indies batsmen got to double figures in the chase, only two made it past 20, and no one made more than Shermaine Campbelle's 23. Devine added to her impressive batting performance by taking 2 for 14 in 3.5 overs, while Suzie Bates claimed 3 for 21. West Indies were dismissed for 109 in 19.5 overs.
