Match: 4th T20I India Women vs West-Indies Women
Day and Date: Sunday, 17 November 2019
Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana
With the series already in their pocket, India women continued their domination over the West Indies women by notching up a five-run win in the rain-affected fourth T20 International in Guyana. Due to Heavy and continuous showers, the play was reduced to 9 overs per side. Hosts won the toss and decided to field first.
While sent to bat first, Openers were again short of efforts to give a start to the innings, the same situation persisted in middle and down the order with Pooja Vastrakar making the only and as well as the highest score for the side-10 runs. While Hayley Matthews picked up 3 wickets alongside Aly Fletcher and Sheneta Grimmond grabbing a couple of wickets each and stopped India at the score of 50 runs with a loss of 7 wickets at the end of 9 overs.
Then came Windies batting to chase the 50 run mark, With the openers Hayley and Chedean they were quite a descent on the field but felt short of overs to chase the target due to their slow innings, Down the orders everyone tried to contribute were not in parallel with the needed pace as they were short of 5 runs at the end of 9th over by making 45 runs with loss of 5 wickets. The Indian spinners helped India to clinch victory in a thriller contest by winning the game by 5 runs. Anuja Patil grabbed a couple of wickets while Radha and Deepti picking up 1 wicket each.
India now leads the 5 match T20 series by 4-0, the next match is to be held on Thursday at the same venue.
IND- 50/7 in 9 overs (Pooja Vatrakar-10, Hayley Matthews-3 for 13) defeated West Indies 45/5 in 9 overs (Hayley Mathews-11, Anuja Patil- 2 for 8) by 5 runs.
