[www.inewsguyana.com] – The West Indies Women lost their first game of the ICC world T20 tournament and in their process lost the Group B lead after suffering a nine wicket defeat to India on Tuesday, April 01.
Stafanie Taylor tried to steady the innings as well with a knock of 17 and a half century stand with Deandra Dottin but the Caribbean girls stumbled to 117 for 7 before the Indians cruised to the target on half centuries from Mithali Raj and Poonam Raut.
The other double digit contributors for Windies were Stacy- Ann King who was run out for 17 and Shemaine Campbelle 10.
Seamer Harmanpreet Kaur with two wickets for 12 runs was the pick of the bowlers. A win meant West Indies would have finished top of the Group B table.
However, they finished behind England on net run-rate, and will therefore face Group A finishers Australia in the first semifinal on Thursday.
