West Indies Women cricketers’ bid to avoid their second straight whitewash in Twenty20s failed when they were beaten by India in the final of the five-match series at the Guyana National Stadium last week.
The regional female cricketers went down by 61 runs in yet another dismal performance, and never once threatened India’s target of 135 and were held to 73 for 7 off their 20 overs, to suffer yet another embarrassing clean sweep.
Last September, West Indies were thrashed 3-0 by Australia in a one-sided series in Barbados.
Choosing to bat first, India got unbeaten half centuries from Veda Krishanmurthy (57 not out) and Jemimah Rodriges (50) to get up to 114 for 3 off their 20 overs.
Stumbling at 17 for two, India was rescued by Kirishnamurthy and Rodrigues who put on 117 for the third wicket.
In reply, the Windies run chase never took off and wickets tumbled regularly as they posted 73 for 7 in their overs.
