Sylhet: Apr 1, 2014

Captain Mithali Raj and her opening partner Poonam Raut hit a half century each as India Women thrashed West Indies by nine wickets in an inconsequential league match of the Women’s World T20 2014.

India, already out contention for a semi-final berth, chased down the target of 118 with 14 balls remaining in their final Group B league match to notch up their second win in the tournament at the Sylhet Stadium.

Mithali carried her bat through the innings as she remained not out on 55 off 52 balls which she made with the help of six boundaries while Raut struck seven fours in her 52-ball knock of 56.

When Raut was out in the last ball of the 17th over, India needed just one run to win the match. One-down Smriti Mandhana struck the winning runs — a four — as India reached 121 for one in 17.4 overs.

India ended the tournament with four points from four matches to occupy the third place in their group and they take on Pakistan in a play-ff match for a berth in the 2016 edition to be held in India.

West Indies, who have already qualified for the semi-finals before this match, finished second in Group B behind England on the basis of net run rate, though both teams ended on same six points from four matches.

West Indies take on defending champions Australia in the first semifinals on April 3 while England face South Africa in the other semifinal on April 4.

Earlier, Indian bowlers produced a disciplined show to restrict West Indies, who chose to bat first, to 117 for 7.

Harmanpreet Kaur picked two wickets for 12 runs from her three overs while Jhulan Goswami, Shubhlakshmi Sharma, Poonam Yadav and Archana Das bagged a wicket apiece.

For West Indies, Deandra Dottin top-scored with 57 and she shared a 61-run stand with captain Stafanie Taylor (17) for the second wicket after opener Kycia Knight was dismissed in the first ball of the day.

The West Indies lost four wickets in three overs towards the end for the addition of just 11 runs as they were 106 for three in 16.4 over to end their innings at 117 for seven.

Brief scores:

West Indies Women 117 for 7 in 20 overs (Deandra Dottin 57; Harmanpreet Kaur 2 for 12) lost to India Women 121 for 1 in 17.4 overs (Mithali Raj 55*, Poonam Raut 56) by 9 wickets.
