Shaquana, 17, inspires Windies to level series

Kingston (Jamaica), Oct 9 : The West Indies women swept to a comprehensive 89 run win over New Zealand in the second of three One Day Internationals (ODI) at Sabina Park here.

Teenager Shaquana Quintyne played crucial roles Tuesday with bat and ball to ensure that the West Indies levelled the series following their dramatic one-run loss to New Zealand in the first ODI Sunday.

The 17-year-old top-scored with 29 off 58 balls as the Windies recovered from 95/8 to post 148 and picked up 2/9 to help bowl out the visitors for 59. She also featured in an important stand of 43 for the ninth wicket with Shakera Selman, who also played well to make 22 in her 50th ODI.

The West Indies, who won the toss and batted, were given a decent start on a first wicket stand between Kyshona Knight and Natasha Mclean that produced a half century in 77 balls. Knight scored 22 and McLean 21.

When New Zealand batted, only one player, Katie Perkins who scored 18, was able to get into double digits as the West Indian bowlers took control. Stafanie Taylor was the top wicket taker with 3/10 while Shanel Daley also took 2/14. Deandra Dottin was also responsible for two run outs.

The decider of the three-match series will be played Thursday also at Sabina Park.
