Calcutta: West Indies on Monday defeated New Zealand by 48 runs in their second Super Six match of the ICC Women's World Cup at the Brabourne Stadium to throw the tournament wide open.
With the odds stacked against them after three losses and one no result in their previous four clashes against New Zealand, the West Indies pulled off a comprehensive victory after bowling out their opponents for 159 in 44.3 overs.
New Zealand, who opted to bowl, brought in Kate Broadmore, the all-rounder, for Amy Satterthwaite, who has had a poor run in the tournament. Broadmore's inclusion, however, didn’t yield results as she managed just eight and remained wicketless throughout her quota of 10 overs.
West Indies 207/9 (S. Taylor 49); New Zealand 159 (T. Smart 3/39). WI won by 48 runs.
