SYDNEY, Australia (CMC) - West Indies Women failed to ease concerns about their batting, but still managed to complete a morale-boosting, four-wicket win against New South Wales (NSW) Women in a Twenty20 practice match on their Tour of Australia on Thursday.
Shemaine Campbelle led the way with 33, and their Captain Hayley Matthews made 24, and the Caribbean side successfully chased 106 to win the match at Cricket Central located in the Sydney Olympic Park complex.
West Indies Women were wobbling on eight for three in the third over after pacer Maitlan Brown snapped up two early wickets.
Campbelle and Matthews inched them towards 50 with a stand of 36 before they were two of three wickets that fell in the span of 24 balls to leave the chase at the crossroads.
Aaliyah Alleyne, not out on 19, and Zaida James, not on 15, added 32 unbroken to get the visitors over the finish line with 13 balls remaining.
Earlier, off-spinner Karishma Ramharack returned the flattering figures of three for 12 from three overs and the NSW Women could only muster 105 for nine from their allocation of 20 overs.
Matthews started a tidy all-round performance with two for seven from two overs, and Alleyne took two for 13 from two overs.
