Deandra Dottin audio after 6th #WWC17 match vs Pakistan Women

 

LEICESTER, England – Deandra Dottin spoke to the Media after she collected her maiden One-day International hundred to spur West Indies Women to their second victory in the ICC Women’s World Cup, when they prevailed over Pakistan Women by 19 runs under the Duckworth/Lewis/Steyn Method today here.

 

Ironically, the 26-year-old Dottin, playing her 104th ODI, struck one-dozen fours and three sixes in an undefeated top score of 104 to lead the Windies Women to 285 for four from their allocation of 50 overs in the rain-marred, sixth round match on a hard, true Grace Road pitch.

 

She shared successive half-century stands with her current captain Stafanie Taylor and former captain Merissa Aguillera that ushered the Caribbean side to their highest total of the tournament and made her a shoo-in for the Player-of-the-Match award.

 

Dottin put on 91 for the fourth wicket with Taylor, whose typically controlled 90 from 107 balls with 11 fours and one six gave Dottin the platform to explode in the closing stages of the innings, when she added 81 – unbroken – for the fifth wicket with Aguilleira, not out on 24.

 

Taylor had also put on 87 with compatriot Chedean Nation for the third wicket, after her side lost their openers cheaply and were 26 for two in the fifth over, having been put in to bat under cloudy skies. Nation made 35.

 

Rain during the interval meant the Windies Women had to defend a revised target of 245 in 38 overs under the DLS Method.

 

Though they met defiance from Javeria Khan with an unbeaten 58 and opener Nahida Khan got 40, the Pakistanis fell behind in the chase when veteran Windies Women’s off-spinner Anisa Mohammed snared two wickets in the space of eight balls, leaving them 117 for three off 24 overs when the rains brought an anti-climatic finish.

 

Summarised scores:

 

WEST INDIES WOMEN 285 for four off 50 overs (Deandra Dottin 104 not out, Stafanie Taylor 90, Chedean Nation 35, Merissa Aguilleira 24 not out; Asmavia Iqbal 2-76). PAKISTAN WOMEN 117 for three off 24 overs (Javeria Khan 58 not out, Nahida Khan 40; Anisa Mohammed 2-21).
