Scorecard

A five-wicket haul by offspinner Anisa Mohammed helped West Indies Women complete an easy victory over Sri Lanka Women in the first ODI in Bridgetown, in the three-match one-day series. Anisa had Shashikala Siriwardene caught behind for her first wicket, which broke a 67-run fourth-wicket partnership between Siriwardene and captain Dilani Manodara. Anisa followed up with the wicket of Manodara in her next over, triggering a collapse as Sri Lanka lost seven wickets for 45 runs and fell 88 short of their target of 229.

Batting first, West Indies built their total around half-centuries by Stafanie Taylor, Shanel Daley and captain Merissa Aguilleira. Daley shared a 78-run partnership with Taylor after the fall of opener Juliana Nero early in the match. Later, Daley was involved in another half-century partnership with Aguilleira for the fourth wicket. Aguilleira's quick 62 off 63 balls helped West Indies to increase the scoring-rate and add 108 in the last 19.3 overs.
