Leading batswomen Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin carved out half-centuries to propel West Indies Women to a 57-run victory over South Africa and a winning 2-NIL lead in the three-match One-Day International series in South Africa on Saturday.

Opting to bat first at Buffalo Park, West Indies Women were dismissed for 232 with four balls left in the innings, with captain Taylor hitting a top score of 79 and Dottin supporting with 61.

In reply, South Africa Women were 85 for one in the 22nd over but collapsed to 175 all out off 45.3 overs – losing their last nine wickets for 90 runs.

The victory came on the heels of the Caribbean side’s 16-run win in the opening ODI at the same venue on Wednesday, and it allowed them to pick yet another two valuable ICC Championship points.
