Cuttack, Feb 8, 2013

The West Indies made heavy weather of a reasonably easy chase before clinching an two-wicket victory over South Africa in their first Super Six match of the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2013 at Cuttack on Friday.

Set a target of 231, the Caribbeans lost their way after a decent start before managing to seal the issue with two wickets and 27 balls to spare.

Kycia Knight (46) and Stafanie Taylor (75) were the stars of the successful chase. Their dismissal triggered a collapse but the West Indies wagged just enough to take the team home after a few hiccups.

Earlier, South Africa managed to put on a fighting total on board, courtesy a couple of decent contributions that helped them go beyond 200.

Trisha Chetty (45) and Croi-zelda Brits (44) were the top run-getters in an otherwise mediocre batting effort that was kept on a tight leash by the disciplined West Indian bowlers.

The West Indian chase was not off to a very good start as opener Natasha Mclean departed after making just five runs but Knight (46) and Taylor (75) steadied the innings in contrasting style.

The cautious Knight and the aggressive Taylor stitched together a 126-run partnership. Knight was the first to be dismissed among the two after facing 68 deliveries and striking six fours.

She was sent back by Dane van Niekerk, the 19-year-old leg-spinner who had earlier contributed valuable 33 runs to the South African total.

Taylor followed Knight back to pavillion, falling to the same bowler after a 78-ball knock which was studded with nine fours and a six.
