Earlier, West Indies Women batsman Deandra Dottin scored a crucial and unbeaten 63, as the Windies finished on an average total of 153 for the loss of seven wickets vs India Women in the second of the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, at the Dr. Gokaraju Liala Gangaaraju ACA Cricket Ground in Mulapadu on Sunday. Apart from Dottin, no other batsman could go past the 25-run mark, while for India, it was Jhulan Goswami and Ekta Bisht, who claimed a couple of wickets each for 28 runs, while most of the Indian bowlers contributed, as the Indies Women once again slumped to a sloppy start.

Thirushkamini, according to sources, went for a run which was never possible on the fourth ball of the fourth over in the game which India eventually won. The India batter was adjudged out when a throw came in from long-on, and the umpire found her obstructing the field.

Earlier, Indian Women skipper Mithali Raj won the coin toss and elected to bat first, as both the teams went in with a balanced side. However, the Windies Women were off to a poor start, as they lost the opening wicket in the form of Hayley Matthews, who fell for mere six to fast bowler Goswami, after being trapped leg-before in the fifth over, with just 16 runs on the board.
