Mumbai: Feb 13, 2013

Five-time champions Australia bundled out West Indies for a meagre 164 runs in their concluding Super Six league match of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup at the MIG club ground in Bandra.

Electing to bat first, the West Indies, barring hard-hitting Deandra Dottin who made 60 of 67 balls with a six and 10 fours, had no answer to combat the skills of Australia’s pace attack.

The Caribbean side folded up in 47 overs at the small ground where they made a record 368 for eight in the preliminary league game against Sri Lanka.

Apart from Dottin, three other players — opener Natasha Mclean (26) and tail-enders Shaquana Quintayne (15) and Tremayne Smartt (10) — reached double digits.

The West Indies, one win away from making the February 17 final against the same opponents who have already booked their berth, lost wickets regularly to the medium-pace duo of Megan Schutt and Holly Ferling.

The two Aussie bowlers packed off six of the top seven wickets to fall, with just 92 on board, the other wicket being claimed by off-spinner Lisa Sthalekar, who turned the ball appreciably.

Sthalekar was also the only bowler who troubled Dottin, who had hit a record 20-ball 50 at this ground against Sri Lanka earlier in the tournament, in her superb first spell of one for 15 in 8 overs, before ending up with one for 24.

Dottin came out firing from the first ball and struck meaty fours and a pulled six in her half century knock to take the attack to the Australian bowlers.

Half the Windies side was back in the hut by the 19th over with only 59 on the board, with Schutt claiming the first two wickets of opener Juliana Nero and one-down Shemaine Campbelle.

Schutt finished with 3 for 50 in her 10 overs by adding to her wickets tally, but her figures were spoilt by Dottin who carted her for two fours in successive balls as soon as she came in for her second spell.

Ferling accounted for the wickets of Mclean, Kyshona Knight and Stefanie Taylor.

Dottin, who struck the rampaging Ferling for successive fours soon after coming on to bat, featured in a 27-run stand for the sixth wicket with captain Aguilleira.

It was mainly due to Dottin’s enterprising knock that the West Indies managed to sail past the 100-mark before the 30th over.

For Australia, Schutt and Ferling were the chief wreckers with figures of three for 50 and three for 27 respectively.

Brief Scores: West Indies 164 all-out in 47 overs (Deandra Dottin 60, Natasha McLean 26; Holly Ferling 3 for 27, Megan Schutt 3 for 5) vs Australia.
