Matthews slams West Indies to win

Captain Stafanie Taylor produced an award-winning performance with bat and ball to lead the Windies Women to a second successive win over Sri Lanka in Trinidad, during the ICC Women's Championships qualification for World Cup 2021.

The game was played at the Brian Lara Stadium.

Chasing 137, Windies started off on the wrong foot, losing Kycia Knight in the first over courtesy a run-out with just two runs on the board, which soon became 7 for 2 in the fifth over with the fall of Taylor.

Earlier in the week, Sri Lanka had collapsed from 63 for one to 136 all out in the series opener.

Inoka Ranaweera then got the better of Nation, castling her for 24, and also sent back Deandra Dottin for 22, but Merissa Aguilleira (32) and Kyshona Knight (21) ensured that there were no further stutters as Windies cruised home in 39 overs to secure two points.

Taylor struck three fours and a six during her 83-ball 60 - her 28th fifty in ODIs - while Dottin hammered four fours and a six during her run-a-ball 37.

Fletcher had figures of three for 26 from 10 overs, with Mohammed taking two for 16 from 10 and Taylor getting two for 31 from nine overs. Opener Yasoda Mendis and No. 3 Chamari Atapattu were the only batsmen to pass 30 in the first innings. Seamers Shakera Selman and Shamilia Connell took one wicket each for West Indies.

The third and final ODI will be played at the same venue on Sunday.
