Scorecard summary
West Indies Women207/9(50 overs)
New Zealand Women159/10(44.3 overs)

Priest sits on the pitch looking defeated as the West Indians celebrate. She eventually gathers herself up and takes the defeat with a smile.

Anissa Mohammed: "We fought from beginning to end. 207 was a good total, we needed to get some early wickets."

West Indies are one win away from the final. New Zealand's task gets tougher. They have one last game against England. They will be keeping an eye on the other matches on Wednesday, the last of the Super Sixes.

The umpiring left a lot to be desired, with at least three going against New Zealand.


Bates: "There's going to be a lot of hurt, we didn't play well enough. We thought there would be enough in the wicket early but gave away too many boundaries at one stage. We needed at least one big partnership."

Aguilleira: "Stafanie started the innings brilliantly. I give the girls all the credit. We believed that once we got to 200 our bowlers would do the job. I must commend Anisa Mohammed. We have good depth in tour team."

Mohammed is the Player of the Match: "There's no big secret behind (my action). I think Stafanie is a brilliant player. We leave (our celebrations) to the next game."

Interesting that Bates did not mention the umpiring. She admitted that West Indies played better overall.

Thanks for your company. The action continues on Wednesday. Cheers!
