and they seal it with a wicket! Goes for a yorker, slammed down the ground, NZ look for a second run, but the long-off fielder picks the right end to throw
That's all we have for you from the Women's World T20 tonight. The final then will be between Australia and West Indies at the Eden Gardens on Sunday.
West Indies will be in action again, the men's team, against India at the Wankhede in a couple of hours' time. Do tune in then
"Credit to West Indies for the way they came out with the bat, and Cooper's innings," Suzie Bates says. "Its been an outstanding tournament, the girls have got around India too. We were just on the wrong side of a very good performance"
"Feels great to be in a final, we've been waiting for this for four times. We're really looking forward to it. We are going to be here looking out and hoping for another win [for the men]," Stafanie Taylor says, "I do think we could win it, I think if we are consistent enough, we can definitely pull it off"
Britney Cooper is the Player of the Match "Congrats to my amazing team. We worked really hard. This is our fourth semi-final and to finally cross this border... First of all, I'd like to thank the coach for the opportunity to bat at No. 3 and I hope I score another 61 in the finals"
5.30 pm The scorecard should show it with the number of run-outs and catches - West Indies' fielding has been superb. Stafanie Taylor walks off with a beaming smile on her face. She only took over the captaincy in September, now she's led the team where no other before her has taken them before. New Zealand had their chances, with Sarah McGlashan and Amy Satterthwaite. That was the most sensible middle-overs batting a New Zealand team had done, but still like the men, they did not have the ammo at the end. Taylor did her bit there too - decided to bring herself into the attack and removed both McGlashan and Satterthwaite in successive balls. She was teary-eyed after falling short by one run off the last ball of the match against England, now she's absolutely beaming.
Mark: "Rally around the West Indies!!! The stranglehold of the Big Three is the womens' game is finally broken. Well done to the West Indians."
Jeet: "If I am not wrong, Australia and west indies women even played final of odi world cup held in sub continent."
Michelle: "Both NZ teams playing well in tournament, until they get to the semi finals. So sad. Big congrats to the West Indies though...could the men do the same???"
West Indies are one ball away from their first ever Women's World T20 final
back of a length, outside off, the charging batsman can only pat it into the point fielder
Nine off two now... as Darren Sammy tweets
back of a length and outside off, cut towards point
dropped by King on the long-on boundary. It was a fine shot, thumped away off the middle, but it still should have been a comfortable catch. She had settled under it. Was waiting for it. But it pops out and goes to the boundary
slower ball, way wide outside off. That was because the batsman was charging her
now she charges down and hammers it to long-off. She wants a couple, there was no way there was one. The throw comes in flat and rapid. Dottin takes it, but as he goes for the back flick, she misses the stumps. The second time she tries, she makes contact. And it did look like Martin was short. How did they not go for the third umpire there? Oh, wait, why did West Indies not appeal there in the first place
square leg is up, midwicket and long-on are back. Fine leg is up, third man is up. Scoop shot?
shortish and outside off, pulled to midwicket. The throw though, has gone miles over the bowler's head. Martin would have been well short
oh dear. The yorker goes wrong, and it could have gone even worse had Martin connected with the little dab sweep. Either way, NZ get an extra ball
Dottin will bowl the final over. 19 needed...
she's turning this game all on her own. Removed both set batsman in the last over, and now she has Kasperek stumped. Knew the batsman would be harried for quick runs, knew they would be running down at her. Speared it flatter and wider, Aguilleira was waiting for it behind the stumps and completes the formalities
another yorker on off stump, steered to point for a single
Dave: "Looks like a familiar story for the NZ in both the men's and women's WC look great im the groups but fail once it gets to the knockout stage"
steps way outside off and pulls a shortish delivery to deep square leg
yorker outside off, steered to point, only a single
wants to loft this well over long-on, but Taylor gets the ball to dip before Kasperek can reach it. Ends up forcing the batsman to drag it instead
beautiful bowling. Picked up on Kasparek running at her, and tossed it up quite wide. Batsman had to reach out to connect with her extra cover drive
So it's more than two runs to each ball now. Here's Taylor again
another slog sweep, this one from wide outside off, but Kasperek has to settle for a single. Great throw in from the deep. Selman, the substitute
slog sweep off a length ball, pummeled to deep midwicket.
plays with the turn, but that dab into the midwicket region only allows for a single
Raja: "Just play a Virat Kohli innings" ---- Ain't so straight forward, is it?
she needed to get it over point and it was a boundary. And she needed to hit it hard because it was Deandra Dottin there. Perkins can do neither. Hits a short and wide one straight to the best fielder on the park
worked away from outside off to deep midwicket
lands a yorker on off stump, jammed it towards extra cover. Quintyne races after it, but couldn't pick it up
Shravster: "Over the course of this contest, I have noticed that if men and women teams play on the same day, then based on whatever the result has gone in favour of women, it has happened the opposite for men. Like when Ind vs Pak match happened, Pak women won where their men lost. Similarly 2 days ago when Indian women lost against WI, Indian men won against Aus. And finally, when Eng women lost against Aus in the SF yesterday, their men's team won. So going by that record, it seems WI are going to lose this one. What does that mean for their men's team then?"
