Deandra Dottin’s high quality unbeaten half-century proved the major difference as West Indies Women easily brushed aside New Zealand Women by 65 runs on Sunday, to take a 2-0 lead in their four-match One-Day International series.

The right-handed Dottin stroked 82 off 99 balls, an innings that lifted West Indies Women to 246 for five after they won the toss and batted first at Warner Park.

Stafanie Taylor weighed in with exactly 50 from 41 balls, opener Kycia Knight hit a measured 48 from 69 deliveries while Shemaine Campbelle scored 27 from 56.

In their turn at the crease, New Zealand Women were undermined by off-spinner Anisa Mohammed who picked up four for 32, and were dismissed for 181 off 45.3 overs.

Off-spinner Taylor (2-21) and left-arm spinner Shanel Daley (2-25) claimed two wickets apiece.

Middle order batsman Sophie Devine starred with a superb 89 off 93 balls while captain and opener Bates stroked 38 off 46 balls, but they found no support.

The victory was the second straight for the hosts, following their five-wicket win in the first game on Friday.
